Tune out the media hype and catch the launch of my new radio segment, “Your Personal Economy”, this week on Your Financial Editor!

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Today’s economic troubles and financial volatility are taking a toll on retiree’s across the nation.  Triple digit point swings in the market, sometimes on a daily basis, have created a new level of anxiety and stress for those who depend on the wealth they’ve created to see them through a successful and fulfilling retirement.  By tuning out the media hype and financial “noise”, investors can focus on what really matters – what I refer to as “Your Personal Economy”.  Structuring a wealth management strategy that is not only based on sophisticated models, but also one that is actively managed, provides you with opportunities and peace of mind that others can’t achieve because they find themselves caught up in the mainstream.

The inaugural “Your Personal Economy” segment will be about Retiring with Confidence.  I’ll be discussing some basic questions surrounding a successful retirement plan.  I’ll also analyze and review a report from the Federal Reserve regarding headwinds for Baby Boomers’ retirement.

As usual, I’ll breakdown the top stories of the week from  the world of business and finance.

Join me for the premier this Saturday, October 1st at 8am on AM 930 WFMD!
