結束了嚴峻挑戰的2020,樂觀的亞裔民眾找到新的契機, 對2021 牛年充滿期待 NORTHWESTERN MUTUAL 發表第一期亞裔消費者財務研討系列

農曆新春是消費者回顧過去一年,並籌劃未來的最佳契機。去年為全世界帶來前所未見的挑戰,但是2021開春也捎來充沛的樂觀和希望。Northwestern Mutual趁著牛年開春,召開了亞裔消費者財務研討系列,回顧亞裔民衆2020年的表現,瞭解他們對2021的夢想和目標。 在2020年新冠疫情高峰期,45%的美國人不得不以非常手段應付日常開銷,動用私人儲蓄或是緊急預備金,或是向親友借錢。以上數據是根據Northwestern Mutual的規劃和進展研究(Northwestern Mutual‘s Planning and Progress Study)而來。這是該公司出資進行的年度性研究計劃,探討美國人對金錢、做出有關財務的決定、及影響民衆長期財務保障等廣泛因素之態度與行爲。百分之84年滿18歲的美國成年人預期新冠病毒(COVID-19)疫情和後續的經濟蕭條將影響他們實現長期財務保障的能力。 在數百萬受到新冠疫情衝擊的企業主裏,其中之一是紐約州紐約市華埠冰激凌工廠(Ice Cream Factory)東主Christina Seid。 “過去40多年來我們經歷了9/11恐怖攻擊,珊迪颶風和數不清的停電打擊,”Seid表示。“無數次的災難我們都挺過去了,但是從沒遇到過像新冠疫情這樣的事情。如今您看一看華埠這個鄰里,您看到的是一個緊密和諧,心心相連的社區。有時候我看到我的鄰居費盡心力安排戶外用餐設施,你只需屈指算算就知道,上門吃飯的客人寥寥可數,他們做的絕對是虧本生意。” 根據規劃和進展研究,將近三分之一(31%)的美國成年人表示財務緊張令他們憂心忡忡,最少每月一次感到抑鬱。約兩成(21%)表示財務緊張至少每月一次影響到他們與配偶/夥伴的關係;約五分之一(19%)表示財務緊張每月都影響到他們的工作表現。 但是並非每個人都對2020感到沮喪和絕望。包括亞裔在内的許多美國人在受訪時都表示從疫情中找到契機,也就是儘管天天面臨挑戰,他們都能夠找到正面的,賺錢的機會。 “2020是我在個人和專業雙方面成長最快的一年,”加州洛杉磯繪圖設計師Jennifer Hu表示。“我非常幸運,不但保住我原有的全職工作,同時找到為其他客戶企劃的兼差,主要因爲許多在疫情期間成立的小型企業需要繪圖設計服務,例如標誌,品牌重塑和社交媒體等。” 有些契機來自疫情紓困計劃,例如來自冠狀病毒援助、紓困、和經濟安全法案(Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act,簡稱CARES法案)的暫停貸款清償和零利率聯邦助學貸款,效期均已延長至2021年9月。 “由於零利率的關係,您知道支付的每一分錢都用於歸還助學貸款,所以您如果把其中一部分拿來做其他用途,可以不須擔心利息的問題,”Northwestern Mutual位於德州Allen市的專業認證理財規劃師(CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™)財富管理顧問Loren Hsiao表示。Hsiao指出將原本打算用來歸還貸款的錢用於策略性投資值得考慮。“在接下來的6個月裏,如果我可把這筆錢拿來投資,如果我可以拿到高於零的利率,您將毫無疑問勝出。” 許多人爲了因應疫情做出調整,結果開發出對生意有幫助的新做法。 “在2020期間,尤其是居家令開始的時候,我們不得已將生意縮減到最低限度,“位於加州托倫斯的Keller Williams南灣房地產中介Hirano住宅房地產團隊的Michelle Yamashiro表示。”我們停租辦公室,削減實體工作空間,把精力放在爲客戶提供個人服務方面。“ 雖然新年是審視個人財務狀況的最佳時機,許多消費者卻錯過機會。根據規劃和進展研究的結果,71%的美國人表示自己的財務規劃需要改進,但是只有20%的美國人表示他們重新審視自己的財務規劃並且針對疫情及隨後的經濟蕭條做出重大調整。五分之一(19%)的新世代和四分之一的Z世代在新冠疫情前完全沒有理財計劃,但現在已開始籌劃開展理財計劃。 “疫情已經拖了這麽長的時間,我們對於何時才能回到新常態並沒有把握,“Seid表示。”所以財務規劃有絕對的重要性。我們必須做好準備,就算回歸正軌需要比預期更長的時間,我們也有完備的企業規劃。“ 規劃和進展研究的受訪者中將近三分之一(31%)對在瞬息萬變的不安定環境中什麽才是最好的財務防禦毫無把握。 “2021開春的第一件事,就是確認 ‘我的藍圖究竟是什麽?’“Hsiao表示。”我們一起草擬一份財務計劃,這份財務計劃有許多章節 – 其中一章以退休為重點,另外一章以大學為重點。您可以把它們想象為一個個房間,如果您規劃您的理財計劃就像規劃您住宅的藍圖,您會有一個美好的2021。“ 根據規劃和進展研究,儘管過去一年充滿挑戰,83%的美國人相信他們最終將實現自己的長期財務保障。76%有信心國家將回歸充分就業,79%有信心國家經濟將恢復成長。 “不管是在個人生活或職業生涯裏,我們大多數人都不曾經歷過如此嚴峻的挑戰,但也是在這樣的環境中,我們被迫在某種程度下暫停脚步,”Hsiao表示。“對我們的許多客戶而言,重啓並非壞事。他們因此卸下生活中對他們並不重要的一些事,在2021年重新邁開步伐,專心一致朝著新的目標勇往直前。” #### Northwestern Mutual 簡介Northwestern Mutual 幫助個人和企業達成財務保障已有超過160年歷史。通過整體性的規劃方式,Northwestern Mutual 結合專業理財顧問的專長、個人化的數位體驗、和領先業界的產品,協助客戶規劃最重要的事務。總資產3088億美元,收入311億美元,和價值超過2萬億的有效人壽保險保護,Northwestern Mutual為超過475萬依賴本公司的壽險、殘疾收入和長期照護保險、年金、中介和顧問服務的民眾提供財務保障。本公司管理由客戶擁有和通過財富管理和投資服務企業控管或管理,總額超過2000億美元的投資。Northwestern Mutual在2020財富雜誌500大(FORTUNE 500)公司中名列102,獲財富雜誌(FORTUNE®)認可為2021年 “全球最受愛戴”的人壽保險公司之一。 Northwestern Mutual是The Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company …

AARP 乐龄会加州主任 Nancy McPherson 寄语:关于针对亚裔美国人和太平洋岛民(Asian American and Pacific Islander)的仇恨犯罪

近日,加州出现了一波针对亚裔美国人和太平洋岛民(AAPI)社区令人紧张的种族冲突暴力和骚扰。更令人不安的是,年长者事实上也成为了种族主义的攻击目标。 AARP 乐龄会强烈谴责所有种族冲突暴力和骚扰行为。 种族主义是让我们的社会受到破坏性、分裂性言辞和暴力行为影响的毒药。我们必须致力于阻止任何形式的种族主义——而这需要社区内所有成员的承诺。 AARP 乐龄会深信,我们必须要齐心协力阻止种族主义,并努力揭露种族主义说辞的本来面目。用 AARP 乐龄会创始人 Ethel Percy Andrus 博士的话来说,「如果我们不满意事情现在的样子,就必须要关心事情可能变成的样子」。我们能够且必须联合起来阻止社区内的种族主义和仇恨。 我们必须全力争取让我们的社区变得平静而和睦,并且必须拒绝可对社区繁荣所需的安全和保障造成威胁的侮辱性成见和暴力说辞。 AARP 乐龄会敦促所有人造访加州检察总长网站 www.oag.ca.gov/hatecrimes,从而了解关于如何对抗种族主义,以及如何报告种族主义暴力和骚扰的更多资讯。如要了解受害者如何保持安全以及旁观者如何提供帮助,请造访stopaapihate.org/together。
