Estate planning for your digital assets

Digital assets are not nearly as easy to retrieve as physical assets

Further to an earlier blog post entitled 'Securing your digital assets' - another article , this time authored by the Drake University, takes the issue further.

What will happen to your Facebook account when you die?

What about all your photos shared on social media, your texts with loved ones, or documents on cloud-storage systems?

In just the two-year period from 2012 to 2014, humans produced more data than in all of human civilization before that – and the pace is only accelerating.

Will this market volatility sort the 'Wheat from the Chaff'?

Global equity markets have fallen and volatility has spiked. TAM ask if this will this sort the 'Wheat from the Chaff'?

Many investors have been lulled into an almost catatonic state of assuming consistent and steady gains, month after month.

Indeed, with equity markets constantly setting new highs with little or no drawdowns it is understandable why. But, as we all know, there is no such thing and markets will always be at the vagaries of buyers and sellers. The real world has returned...investment is simply not that easy!
