Malvern Bank's "Money Matters"

Money Matters: The Power of Positive Thinking!

April 1, 2022


Are you an optimist or a pessimist? Traditional wisdom says it's healthier to focus on the positive, but there are times when pessimism can be useful.

These days, it's tempting to get caught up in the negative: war, inflation, interest rate increases, and the like. But taking some time to seriously focus on the worst-case scenario can actually help you feel more optimistic about the future.

Let's take some time to run a scenario analysis of your financial situation to help build confidence that you are still on the path to pursuing your goals, even in light of these pessimistic times. That may help you feel a bit more optimistic.

And if your goals include purchasing a new home, Malvern Bank has good news. Our residential mortgages are very competitive in the marketplace, and our jumbo loan pricing is the best on Philadelphia's Main Line. For information on our jumbo and other residential mortgages, contact John Stack, Senior Vice President, Residential Mortgage Manager, at

Here are some of the best articles circulating this week with information that can help you in your planning. Enjoy them and feel free to share with anyone you think could benefit. Let's connect. I'd love to hear from you.
