Personal Capital Review 2020

First of all, we must note that Personal Capital does not want to be classified as a robo-advisory and would prefer to be considered a digital asset management service that also includes personalized advice from financial planners. That said, the company was one of the first to put tools in investor’s hands and automate elements of portfolio management. Personal Capital is our top choice for portfolio management due to the way the firm’s advanced technology effectively manages risk and taxes.

New and Notable:

  • Personal Capital is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Empower Retirement, a retirement services provider, as of August 2020.
  • The Recession Simulator, which allows Americans to illustrate the effect historical recessions would have had on their investments, was introduced in June 2020.
  • Personal Capital Cash is a cash management service for U.S. residents and citizens with no minimum balance requirements. Investing clients receive a higher rate of interest.

Go-Go Activism, Both Personal and Political, Is Coming Into Its Power in D.C.


In late August, on the night before Postmaster General Louis DeJoy testified before the House of Representatives about service cuts designed to manipulate the upcoming presidential election, ShutDownDC and Long Live GoGo organized a protest in front of his Kalorama apartment building. 

Go-go bounce beat band TOB performed on a flatbed truck in front of a banner that read, “Wait a minute, Mr. Postman.” 

Days later, when President Trump delivered his Republican National Convention acceptance speech on the White House’s South Lawn, TOB played at a “Drown Out Trump” demonstration just a few blocks away. Police would not let them get closer than Constitution Avenue NW, but TOB lead talker “Lil Chris” Proctor is certain that RNC attendees could hear the beat. “Bounce beat has really heavy percussion and drums,” he says. “We were playing real loud.”

And last week, when protestors paid an early morning “No Justice, No Sleep”

Krugman: Trump’s massive personal debt, his future and ours – Opinion – Austin American-Statesman

The bombshell New York Times report on Donald Trump’s tax returns is a remarkable feat of journalism.

Yet like many other revelations in the Trump era, the tax news falls into the category of “shocking but not surprising.” Many observers had already surmised that Trump paid little or no taxes, that his claims of brilliant business success were a fiction, and that he is deep in debt. Now all of that is virtually confirmed. But what does it mean for America’s future?

Everyone will come at this question from their own angle. When I read the Times report, I quickly found myself thinking about … the theory of business capital structure. No, really.

For many people, no doubt, the main takeaway from the tax revelations will be “$750? Really?” The fact that Trump paid less in taxes than tens of millions of hardworking Americans struggling to make ends meet is
