The Importance of Digital Asset Management

Everything is digital today, from banking transactions to text messages to meeting a potential spouse. Running a business has most definitely gone digital, with communication, organization, and more all available at the touch of a button. And one of the most important ways companies can leverage digital technologies is to organize, search, store, edit, and distribute company assets to coworkers and business partners using Digital Asset Management (DAM). Exactly what it sounds like but so much more powerful than that, Digital Asset Management helps companies make the absolute best use of the ever-expanding library of digital documents they create every day. DAM is utterly indispensable to today’s businesses, and here are just a few reasons why:

How International Deals Impact the US Market

Like any ecosystem, the world economy is deeply interconnected, and while America remains the largest single economy in the world, it’s the biggest fish in a pond with some pretty big fellow swimmers, and news from Europe and Asia most definitely affects the United States, just as the American market can dictate ups or downs for foreign affairs. For proof of this, look no further than the Greek crisis of 2011, with Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index dropping 18.6% in one year over concerns about Greece. Meanwhile, China’s potential slowdown could send American markets crashing like it’s 1929. With all this in mind, we should take a look at the business situations overseas and how they might influence American stocks.

How to Invest in 2017

We live in interesting times. With Brexit and the Trump administration, the finance sector’s eight-year-old bull market is wandering into unknown pastures, with uncertainty regarding whether Britain and the EU can thrive once apart and whether an untested but wily self-promoter can successfully shepherd the world’s largest economy. While experts have predicted the bull market will continue to climb uphill this year, investment gains will be fair to middling as everyone plays wait-and-see -- while there’s no need to destabilize an upward market by withdrawing funds, few investors think now is the time to go all-in. In this time of uncertainty, people are still looking for safe, smart investments in 2017, so we thought we’d hand out some advice.

Snap IPO Filing Does Not Go According to Plan

New tech company IPOs are always a cause for excitement in the financial market. Talk of Unicorns and big money deals abound, and industry gossip mavens wait with bated breath for news of Zynga- or Facebook-style shenanigans. But sometimes the story isn’t much of a story, at least at first, and a well-known company’s much-anticipated IPO just does not live up to the hype. This is exactly the case with Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP), when the creators of messaging app Snapchat publically released their IPO filing through the SEC in February of 2017.

Mutual Fund Trends in 2017

Mutual funds are usually a safe investment, and despite a troubled year this was definitely true at the end of 2016. The S&P 500 finished the year up 12%. Diversified stock funds in the United States went up an average of 10.81% after gaining 4.06% in the fourth quarter. With last year and its post-election rally over, it remains to be seen whether 2017 continues strong for mutual funds. To best prepare for the days to come, let’s look at some predictions for the rest of the year and see what new regulations might be enacted.
