By applying the best practice approach of ‘Rapid Rehousing’ we can truly stabilize this important population and take care of our most vulnerable.”To kick off the effort and receive community comment, SideWalk will host two public meetings at the Veterans Outreach Center, 4232 6th Ave SE, Suite 202, in Lacey.  The first, beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, June 9, will provide an opportunity to aid in the development of a strategic outreach plan.  The second, at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, June 30, will focus on action steps to finalize input on the coordinated effort.Nationally, nearly 900 community leaders have endorsed the challenge, which has been designated a National Best Practice of The Federal Housing and Urban Development Department (HUD). To date, twenty-four communities and two states have utilized the challenge to help end Veteran homelessness.last_img

No savings at 50? I’d use Warren Buffett’s methods to invest

first_img Peter Stephens | Friday, 19th February, 2021 Warren Buffett’s investment strategy has been hugely successful for many years. The billionaire investor’s long-term approach and purchase of high-quality companies trading at low prices has allowed him to outperform the stock market.Following a similar approach could help to build a retirement nest egg over the coming years. Many shares appear to offer good value for money right now. So today could be the right time to start that process. Even from a standing start at age 50.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Warren Buffett’s long-term approachOne of the key parts of Buffett’s approach to investing is his long-term outlook. He avoids short-term fads. Instead, he seeks to maximise returns over many years, and even decades. In doing so, he provides his portfolio holdings with the time they need to deliver on their potential. His strategy also allows compounding to have maximum impact on portfolio value.An new investor aged 50 may not have as much time to build a retirement nest egg as someone just starting their career. However, they’re likely to have 15+ years left of working until they retire. As such, they still have a long time horizon. Enough time to maybe be able to follow Buffett’s lead in using a buy-and-hold strategy to improve their financial position.Investing money in high-quality stocks at low pricesAnother facet of Warren Buffett’s investment strategy that could be useful to many investors is his focus on buying undervalued shares. This doesn’t mean he buys cheap shares in low-quality companies. Or that he seeks to buy the best stocks at any price. Instead, he combines the two approaches to purchase high-quality stocks when they trade at low prices.In many cases, those low prices are caused by weak operating conditions prompted by a tough economic period. History shows such conditions are unlikely to last in perpetuity. Certainly since the economy has always recovered from its challenges to post improving growth rates. As such, buying companies with solid financial positions and wide economic moats while they experience temporary challenges could be a sound move.Investing for retirementUsing Warren Buffett’s strategy could lead to impressive returns that beat the stock market’s performance over the long run. Even if an investor matches the 8-10% annual total returns of indexes such as the FTSE 100 and S&P 500 over recent decades, they could build a surprisingly large portfolio by retirement.For example, investing £1,000 per month over 15 years at a 9% return would produce a portfolio valued at £381,000. From this, a 4% annual passive income could be drawn that would amount to over £15,000 per year.By following Warren Buffett’s strategy it’s possible to beat such returns in the coming years to produce a larger nest egg. And a more generous income that could even lead to an early retirement. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.
