Live Friday February 18th:

The Pulse Welcomed our financial expert, Windus Fernandez-Brinkkord from Trilogy Financial Services.

Windus shared the 2022 top Financial Trends!

We talk inflation and all you need to know!  She has all the answers for you!

She also talks about investing strategy for Millenials and the younger generation.

These past two years have undoubtedly been the most shocking and unsettling period for investors since the Global Financial Crisis of 2008-2009—first the outbreak of the pandemic, next to the bitterly partisan election, then the pandemic’s second major wave, and now a 40-year-high inflation spike of 7%.

Many are rethinking retirement and also want to fund a #bucketlist lifestyle!

About Windus:

Since joining Trilogy Financial in 2003, Windus has paired success with her commitment to the relationships in her life. She works with her clients to visualize the pathways to their success so they can decide which route is better for them and helps them change gears should their chosen pathway not be as productive as anticipated.

Ultimately, she strives to help her clients understand that success isn’t achieved with the first plan but with their long-term relationship and commitment to work together.

Coming from a family background in property management, Windus also wants to help build, create and foster an awesome culture for other professionals to grow their business.

She is a member of the professional groups, Connected Women of Influence, 6 Degrees San Diego, Elite Networking Group and SPIRE. She is also a board member for Traveling Stories, an organization that believes in outsmarting poverty through literacy programs.

She is an Investment Advisor Representative with Trilogy Capital, Inc., where she holds her Series 65 Registration. She also holds her Series 6, 7 and 63 Registrations with LPL Financial, as well as holds a Life Insurance License.

Let us know if you have a question for Windus! She is offering our viewers a 30 minute consult if you mention the Pulse.

The Pulse also welcomed John Hyatt from Irish Congress of Southern California to talk about the 2022 St. Patrick’s Day Parade!
