Can You Believe It’s Been 50 Years Since Woodstock?

Duration: 11:27

OK fine, maybe it’s time to listen to some tunes by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. But a far more important 50th anniversary we’re celebrating is that of the financial planning industry. Listen to Ric Edelman share some exciting news relating to this anniversary and how he helped to shape the industry.


It’s Unrealistic to Expect the Stock Market to Sustain Its Recent Returns

Duration: 8:24

The stock market was up nearly 20 percent in the first nine months of the year. But because of the trade wars, American businesses are seeing a reduction in sales activities and a slowdown in manufacturing. Listen to Ric Edelman explain why this is OK and how it won’t prevent you from reaching your goals.


Victims of Ponzi Schemes Have Lost $31 Billion in the Last 10 Years

Duration: 4:46

You are more likely to be ripped off by an online advertisement than a robocall, according to the Better Business Bureau, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and the Stanford Center on Longevity. Scammers are even using fake consumer reviews to lure you into buying used cars, vacation rentals and tickets to events. Listen to Ric Edelman reveal more stories about fraud and how to protect your assets.


Here’s the Problem With Ratings on Mutual Funds

Duration: 10:04

When you look at a five-star rating of a restaurant, it’s reliable because the restaurant is in total control of the meal they serve you. But the same is not true of mutual funds, which can’t control interest rates, inflation, currency rates, unemployment rates, corporate earnings, government regulations and technological change. Listen to Ric Edelman’s advice on how to evaluate mutual funds the right way.
