BlackRock introduces iRetire – A simple process to help answer lifetime questions

“Will I have enough for the retirement I want?”  The iRetire® plan can help the advisor determine his/her client’s needs with an easy to understand retirement gap analysis. This tool shows the relationship between your client’s savings and the number that really matters: the income they could have each year in retirement. It helps empower decisions, illustrating the tradeoffs between risk, retirement date, income needs and spending.

In the Spotlight: DRL Group and The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™

Recently, Mid Atlantic reached out to one of our newest registered representatives, David Loesch with the DRL Group, to learn more about his involvement with The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™. Mid Atlantic always likes to share with its family how our business partners go above and beyond their daily business to have a positive effect on the community.

The Houston Livestock Show™ has promoted the breeding and marketing of the livestock industry in the Texas Gulf Coast region. David Loesch got involved in 1997 because he wanted to give back to the community and in particular to the youth: “This Rodeo is much more than just a Rodeo, it is a vehicle for young people to shape their future.”

Each year, the Houston Livestock Show™ draws thousands of Texas 4-H and FFA exhibitors to compete. Each exhibitor works several months to prepare. Participants are between the ages of 9 and 18, are Texas residents and are members of a Texas 4-H Club or FFA Chapter.  More than 750 scholarships are awarded. 1st place winners can be awarded as much as $36,000!

Mr. Loesch commented: “As you know, Texas is a large state! Last year only 330 animals made it to the judging. There is a lesson in the disappointment as well. The young people are involved in raising these animals. It teaches them discipline, respect, and commitment.”

A week-long celebration leading up to opening day of the Rodeo began on February 20. The rodeo itself will run from Feb. 27 – March 18, 2018. It is an impressive operation to say the least. Mr. Loesch hopes that the team at Mid Atlantic will get the opportunity to come and enjoy this experience!
