When banks like SVB fail, what happens to deposits when the FDIC takes over? 

The SVB failure shows how important FDIC insurance is.

Then, two days later, the FDIC announced Signature Bank was closed, too. To protect depositors, the FDIC took over the banks’ assets.   But what does that actually mean?   In these situations, the protection extended by the FDIC becomes a lifesaver for your money.  The…

A balanced investment portfolio is made up of a variety of investments that work together to help you achieve your financial goals while reducing risk.  For an individual investor, the more diverse their portfolio, the more protected they are from potential losses arising from market fluctuations. A portfolio that is too concentrated (for example, all invested in stocks) is subject to greater risk than one that spreads investments across different asset classes and geographic regions.   At Save, we utilize quantitative techniques to determine relative asset preferences, carry out risk-based asset allocation, and apply volatility control overlays…

Following the Rule of 72, potentially double your Market Savings deposit in less than 8 years

Rule of 72 shows you should double your deposit in 8 years
How long does it take an investment to double in value? Meet the Rule of 72.
