The Ric Edelman Show provides an entertaining and unique approach to financial advice you won’t find anywhere else. One of the most acclaimed financial advisors in the country, Ric covers the wide range of personal finance topics that are more important to you and your daily life: planning for college and retirement, handling your mortgage, maximizing your Social Security benefits, creating wills and trusts, participating in your workplace retirement plan, taxes, deciding if you need insurance, managing your investments, and much more.
For nearly 30 years, The Ric Edelman Show has provided listeners with objective advice and information that is easy to understand and implement. Ric never touts investments by name, or ever makes predictions about interest rates, fed policy, legislation or regulation. No “hot tips”! Instead, Ric shows listeners how to manage their money given the many uncertainties and obstacles they face in their efforts to achieve their long-term financial goals.
Ric’s common-sense approach, along with his trademark anecdotes and humor, along with clever sounds bites and audio effects, actually make personal finance fun! Ric turns the boring and arcane topic of financial planning into an accessible and interesting topic. He reduces complex financial matters to plain English, adding his breezy, conversational style to thought-provoking data and statistics. It’s interesting and entertaining radio that keeps shows you how the latest events in the financial world affect you.
