October 18, 2019 —

Rochester, NY: Family Wealth and Legacy is proud to announce Michael Palumbos has won the 2019 PlanPlus Global Financial Planning Awards. The Global Awards Program started six years ago. The goal was to showcase financial planning at it's best. The awards give global recognition to advisors creating extraordinary value for their clients. Michael Palumbos won the award in the Americas category. "We entered the competition looking for constructive criticism about our financial planning process. We didn't expect to win. It's a real honor for our team." said Michael Palumbos, the founder of the firm.

The competition scores in three rounds by a panel of five judges. The focus is on the comprehensive nature of the advisor's planning process. As well as, the value and benefit the planning had for the client. This judging criterion sets the PlanPlus competition apart from other competitions. Other programs focus on the advisor's total assets under management, not the value of the planning to the client. For most clients the benefit of planning is often in areas other than managing the portfolio. It's the income tax reduction strategies and the business growth or transition plan. It's having someone look at their entire situation. Taking the time to point out any gaps or opportunities they may have not even known about.

Entry is limited to a person with a recognized professional designation who is in good standing with a financial planning association or other professional body. Only finalists will be required to submit the actual plan document on which their submission was based. Pursuant to financial planning practice standards, the advisor must have an engagement agreement in place to ensure that full disclosure of all material facts has been made to the client. This includes but is not limited to: how the planner is compensated, disclosure of all commissions, fees, etc. as well as disclosure of any conflicts of interest.

HONG KONG — A homemade, remote-controlled bomb intended to "kill or to harm" riot control officers was detonated as they deployed against renewed violence in Hong Kong over the weekend, police said Monday, in a further escalation of destructive street battles gripping the business hub. The "loud thud" Sunday night close to riot officers who had been clearing away a protester-built road block marked the first known use of an explosive device during protests that started in June over a contested extradition bill and have snowballed into an anti-government, anti-police and anti-China movement. "It exploded less than 2 meters (yards)...

BEIJING — Asian stock markets have risen after Washington and Beijing announced a truce on tariff hikes in a trade war. Benchmarks in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Seoul advanced.

President Donald Trump agreed Friday to put off planned tariff hikes this week on Chinese goods in a fight over Beijing's trade surplus and technology plans.

Friday's truce "has simply temporarily halted the escalation...

China criticizes Apple for app that tracks Hong Kong police

Nov 12, 2019

HONG KONG — Apple became the latest company targeted for Chinese pressure over protests in Hong Kong after the ruling Communist Party's main newspaper criticized the tech giant Wednesday for a smartphone app that allows activists to report police movements. HKmap.live, designed by an outside supplier and available on Apple Inc.'s online store, "facilitates illegal behavior," the People's Daily said in a commentary. "Is Apple guiding Hong Kong thugs?" the newspaper said. Beijing has pressed companies including Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific Airways to take the government's side against the protests, which are in their fourth month. Apple didn't immediately respond...
