Communication is such an important thing. Countless books have been written about the subject yet we still struggle to communicate with one another. In the world of financial services, some miscommunication is unintended while some happens to be on purpose. It is hard to question the advice or the validity of an investment strategy when you cannot understand it. The real trick is to know when someone is struggling to communicate with you or if they are purposely trying to talk circles around you. The first is irritating and CAN cost you a lot of money, while the second WILL cost you a lot of money!
I spend some time on the program trying to translate financial speak into common sense. It is hard to translate but well worth it. The difference can mean thousands of extra dollars in your pocket instead of in the pocket of the person trying to sell you a product.
The Active Management/Passive Management Debate (Case Closed)
Later in the program, I provide the basic facts of how active management fails to deliver on its promise of beating the market. I still wonder why so many people believe in the Wall Street Santa Claus of superior performance when study after shows that the Grinch is alive and well in the canyons of Manhattan.
As always I hope you enjoy the show. – Gary
