Market Update: June 2023

Persistent Inflation

While CPI and Core CPI have steadily declined over the past year, wage growth has remained elevated. Following a November 2022 speech by Federal Reserve Chair Powell, many economists and market participants have focused on the impact of wages on non-housing services inflation. This has been one of the “stickier” areas of inflation.


NPAIT Scholarship

Each year, NPAIT awards two $1,000 academic scholarships provided by PMA.

 A committee comprised of NPAIT Board Members judges and selects the recipients of these scholarships.

This year’s winners are Candace Heggemeyer from Wayne, NE and Jaxon Stueve from Bellevue, NE. Ethan Hintz from Norfolk, NE was selected as the alternate.



NPAIT – No exposure to SVB or Signature Bank

The recent joint actions by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Federal Reserve Board, and the Treasury Department ensure that all depositors at the two institutions that were recently closed (Silicon Valley Bank in California and Signature Bank in New York) can access their funds with no interruptions.
