Malvern Bank’s "Money Matters"

Money Matters: Ever felt like the Ever Given?

April 2, 2021


If you’ve watched world news in the past week, you know that the Ever Given is a massive container ship that found itself wedged in Egypt’s Suez Canal, blocking traffic in one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes for six days. It cost countless dollars of lost business and delays — and made for some creative Internet memes.

When it comes to your financial goals, where are you finding yourself wedged in? Whether it’s finally starting that automatic withdrawal savings plan, planning and investing for retirement or even taking the time to get your taxes organized, I’m here to tell you that the best time to do it is right now, before it costs you countless dollars toward your future.

At Malvern, we are here to help you get unstuck and move full steam ahead. For example, here are some tips about a popular investment account – the IRA. The deadline to make an IRA contribution is April 15, 2021. An individual under age 50 can contribute up to $6,000 and a person 50 and older can contribute up to $7,000. If you don’t currently have an IRA, you can easily open one through Malvern Bank or our affiliate Bell Rock Capital*, an SEC Registered Investment Advisor. Your IRA contribution will decrease your 2020 tax bill. And with an IRA, you can even rollover those old 401(k) funds.

Once your IRA is open, Malvern can work with you to customize your portfolio to align with your financial needs, risk tolerance, and retirement goals. To get started, contact us at 610.644.9400 or call Sally Lawson, our Investment Advisor at 610-695-3651.
