Improving client experiences in 2020: A conversation with Thrivent's CMO
The world and how we live within it has been changing for some time, shifting to more digital workplaces, communities and experiences. This year, with many of us working from home, these changes have accelerated. And as many companies, including Thrivent, transform to meet our clients' emerging needs, we are also called to ensure our transformation is still aligned with our purpose and our core values.
Do I need life insurance? Questions to ask yourself and your family.
From vacations to planning for college, creating life plans with loved ones is one of the many joys in life. But when it comes to more sensitive topics, like unexpected deaths or disability, it can be tempting to avoid conversations altogether. Initiating a conversation about your family values and goals – and how those goals could be impacted by the loss of a loved one – not only helps you think through key details of your legacy plan but can provide some peace of mind for everyone.
Key habits and values to teach kids about money by age
Kids start learning about money a lot earlier than we may think. They see us pay for groceries. They open birthday cards from grandma with a $10 bill inside. They hear us talk about our mortgage. Money lessons are everywhere.
Financial clarity in an uncertain world
In volatile markets, people tend to pay more attention to their money. It stands to reason. After all, volatility leads to questions about diversification, risk sensitivity and whether you should be pulling your money out of the market and sticking it under a mattress. But the notion of a down market only exists because there is a counter concept known as an "up" market. And as you might guess, people don't pay as close attention to their money in these times. At Thrivent, we stress that both markets need to be adhered to in order to achieve what every investor and financial client is ultimately seeking: financial clarity.
