MoneyTalk is an informative and unique show that pulls back the curtain on Wall Street. We show you the things other shows won’t. The fees and expenses, the sales charges that are hidden. They way your money can be tied up for years. We tell you what to avoid when making investment decisions, and what to look for as well.
Our average time spent listening is over 40 minutes. We’ve had a very loyal audience for eight years. People don’t just tune in, they listen to the entire show. We give away a free book on every show to every caller, anywhere in the U.S. We give away a different book each week on a variety of investment topics. Books on long term care, index investing, stock selection methods and exchange traded funds and mutual funds. In addition to a free book for every caller we will also do a free financial plan for every caller, anywhere in the U.S.
Information you need. What Wall Street won’t tell you and why they won’t tell you. We discuss the perils of investing. What type of advisor to work with and the type you can do without as well.
Innovative and different investment strategies. Equities, mutual funds ETF’s and annuities. Life insurance, health insurance and annuities. Estate planning. Wills trusts and health care directives.
Behavioral investing. We explore the psychology behind why people invest the way they do. We delve into the who, what, when, where and how the mind works when it comes to investing. The mistakes people make, why they make them and how to correct them.
