Hiring a trained expert to safeguard and grow your wealth seems like a foolproof decision, but it can go awry for many people.

This no-nonsense guide covers questions such as: How should you decide if you really need an advisor? What financial moves can you make without their help?

- Have you ever wondered why investments always seem to go down after you buy them? - Are you overwhelmed by the number and complexity of investment choices? - Do you have a plan to create lifetime income from your investments, while preserving your principal? - Are you unsure how to find a good financial advisor and what to expect from one? In A Good Financial Advisor Will Tell You, authors Jeremy Kisner, CFP and Robert Luna, CIMA answer these common concerns and reveal what people really need to know to make better financial and investment decisions. Rather than write another boring book that explains stocks and mutual funds, the authors explore behavioral finance-the reasons why people make investing mistakes-and they teach readers how to avoid doing the same. Countless people amass small fortunes during their lifetimes only to squander them through inadequate planning and poor investments. We are all familiar with the celebrities who have lost it all. What is not reported in the press is how many middle class millionaires also lose it all. And an even larger number of people do not lose it all but could have left a legacy for generations if they had made better financial decisions. Most investors do not fare well precisely because they are human. Human beings are hard-wired to make decisions with their hearts or intuitions and then justify those decisions with logic. Greed and fear rule the day, but a better way exists that will allow investors to avoid mistakes and enjoy greater wealth and retirement income. After reading this book you will be a more educated investor and a better consumer of financial services.

The investment advice and management industry is built on fraud: the idea that professional advisors can predictably and consistently help you get a better rate of return on your investments. The industry sells us on this lie using manipulative tactics that are studied, refined, Wall Street minted, and Madison Avenue packaged. And extraordinarily effective. Here, Michael Edesess exposes the shocking truth that, in fact, behind the success of nearly every prosperous investment professional lies not the ability to procure higher rates of return on investment for his or her clients but the ability to procure astoundingly high fees from those clients and nothing more. Through fascinating and sometimes humorous anecdotes and straightforward explanations of investment theory and scientific evidence, Edesess reveals just how badly investors are being scammed by The Big Investment Lie. He examines how the master salespeople that make up the industry sell their cleverly concocted distortions of truth--to the tune of $200 billion a year--to unsuspecting consumers who swallow them hook, line and sinker. He then shines a spotlight on the true cost of the industry's useless advice, showing that a prudent independent investor, following a conservative strategy, can reap anywhere from 40 percent to over 100 percent more than an investor who falls for The Big Investment Lie. Detailing the Ten New Commandments for Smart Investing--practical advice for how, where, and when to invest your money to maximize wealth--The Big Investment Lie provides the guidance you need to secure your financial future without throwing your hard-earned money away on the fraudulent investment advice industry.

The instant New York Times bestseller from legendary investment guru Ric Edelman, who presents a prescient personal finance guide on how technology and science will reshape the way we save, invest, and plan for the future. In The Truth About Your Future, award-winning financial advisor Ric Edelman reveals how technology and science are evolving at a blistering, almost incomprehensible pace—with profound implications for your personal finances. Ric radically upends traditional financial planning, showing that you need not just one financial plan, but three—one for now, one for later and one for much later. He explains: Why you’re likely to live much longer—and the impact on your financial future; how you must alter your plans to shift from the familiar linear lifeline (school-job-retirement-death) to the new cyclical lifeline; the importance of Career Planning—even if you’re in your fifties or sixties; how to invest in tech companies and how to generate income from your investments; why nursing homes are becoming obsolete—and with them, long-term care insurance policies, and what this means for you; how to protect your digital assets; and how you’ll spend your time—and money—in retirement, and why the future will be the happiest time of your life. The traditional paradigms of how we live, learn, and invest are shifting under our feet. Fortunately, Ric Edelman has seen the future, and in The Truth About Your Future he illustrates how smart investors can adapt and thrive in today’s changing marketplace. Newcomers and loyal Edelman followers alike will find value in his proven advice and trademark humor. This is a must-have guide for anyone serious about successfully adapting to the ever-evolving financial landscape.

Turn your retirement savings into a steady paycheck that will last for life with Jane Bryant Quinn’s “‘how to’ book that covers every phase of retirement finance. Bottom line, anyone on the retirement track or in retirement should own this book” (Huffington Post). Today, people worry that they’re going to run out of money in their older age. That won’t happen if you use a few tricks for squeezing higher payments from your assets—from your Social Security account (find the hidden values there), pension (monthly income or lump sum?), home equity (sell and invest the proceeds or take a reverse mortgage?), savings (should you buy a lifetime annuity?), and retirement accounts (how to invest and—critically—how much to withdraw from your savings each year?). The right moves will not only raise the amount you have to spend, they’ll stretch out your money over many more years. With this book, financial expert Jane Bryant Quinn, “America’s dean of personal finance” (Forbes), explains how to turn your retirement funds into a paycheck that will last for life. She also shows how to look at your savings and investments in a new way. If you stick with super-safe choices the money might not last. You need safe money to help pay the bills in your early retirement years. But to ensure that you’ll still have spending money ten and twenty years from now, you have to invest for growth, today. Quinn shows you how. At a time when people are living longer, yet retiring with a smaller pot of savings than they’d hoped for, this book will become the essential guide—“a hugely valuable resource for readers, wherever they are on their personal financial timeline” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

"A gem from one of the most brilliant minds in personal finance." —Ben Stein, author, actor, TV personality, and New York Times columnist "Investing, as it is said, is simple but it is not easy. Jonathan Clements's fine new Little Book underscores the priceless (and price-less) value of simplicity. And his sage advice on living the good life and on spending well and saving wisely will surely make it, if not easy, at least easier for us to achieve financial peace of mind." —John C. Bogle, founder of Vanguard and author of Enough "Nobody, and I mean nobody, can make the world of investing as easy to understand as Jonathan Clements can. In this wonderful book, he teaches Main Street how to beat Wall Street at its own game-and how to have fun along the way. This book does not stop at merely making you richer and smarter; it will even help you lead a better life." —Jason Zweig, author of Your Money and Your Brain and editor of Benjamin Graham's The Intelligent Investor "Jonathan Clements is one of our wisest and finest writers in the field of personal finance. This Little Book contains gems of wisdom not only about investing, but also about living a full and satisfying life." —Burton G. Malkiel, author of A Random Walk Down Wall Street "Easy to read, easy to understan-and easy to put to work-this Little Book is a winner.
