Millions of us are committing a slow, imperceptible form of financial suicide.
Chances are your IRA or 401(k) carries far more risk than you realize, lacks real diversification that could reduce downside risk, and is falling behind the underreported rate of inflation that eats away at your retirement fund every year.
In the next market crash, you could be left vulnerable and unprotected.
Wall Street financial advisers are supposed to build and preserve your wealth, yet they are untrained in portfolio construction and how to contain risk and bulletproof your investments. They charge high fees and sometimes put their own interests ahead of yours.
Now Ed Butowsky, a Wall Street insider who spent two decades as one of the top producers at the fabled firm of Morgan Stanley & Co., breaks from the pack to reveal the flaws, fibs and failings of financial advisers. To fix this mess, he has created the new CHIP Score to empower you to evaluate the potential for Risk & Reward in your portfolio and grade your adviser—before the next meltdown.
Nobody else on Wall Street ever dared to create anything like it. Wealth Mismanagement will empower investors to protect themselves. Read it & reap.
