The Houston Midtown Chapter of The Society for Financial Awareness Presents MONEY MATTERS with Christopher Hensley

With over 1,000 pages of new tax law, decoding what this means for individuals, retirees, and businesses will be a difficult task.

On today’s show we talked with tax attorney and author Rebecca Walser. She gave us valuable commentary into the new tax bill, effective 2018 and her new book Wealth Unbroken. 

Tax attorney and Certified Financial Planner Rebecca Walser will release her book Wealth Unbroken - Growing Wealth Uninterrupted by Market Crashes, Taxes, or Even Death in January 2018. Known from her weekly “Smart Money Mondays” segment on the nationally syndicated “Daytime” television show seen in over 70 markets, she has also been featured in US News & World Report, Bloomberg Business, New York Post, New York Daily News, Yahoo Finance, ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, FOX News, CW, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, LA Daily News, International Business Times, Investing Daily, Street Insider, and numerous other media outlets.

According to Rebecca Walser, tax attorney and financial strategist, conventional wealth building wisdom has been leading Americans astray for 40 years. In Wealth Unbroken, Rebecca explains how and why following the popular beliefs about long-term wealth building are keeping 96 out of 100 Americans from financial success in their retirement.

How much can you spend in retirement? Naturally, this is an essential question for those approaching this important life transition. Essentially, if you wish to retire one day, you are increasingly responsible for figuring out how to save during your working years and convert your savings into sustainable income for an ever-lengthening number of retirement years. The nature of risk also changes in retirement, as the lifestyle of retirees become more vulnerable to the impacts of market volatility, unknown longevity, and spending shocks. Retirees have one opportunity to build a successful plan. It is not an easy task, but it is manageable.

On today’s show we talked with Author Dr. Wade Pfau about his new book How to Spend Money Wisely in Retirement. 

Dr. Wade D. Pfau, CFA®, is a Professor of Retirement Income in the PhD in Financial and Retirement Planning program at The American College of Financial Services. He is also a contributor to the The College’s Retirement Income Certified Professional® (RICP®) designation program curriculum.

Dr. Pfau is a co-editor of the Journal of Personal Finance. He has spoken at the national conferences of organizations for financial professionals such as the CFA Institute, FPA, NAPFA, AICPA-PFP, and AFS. He also publishes frequently in a wide variety of academic and practitioner research journals. He hosts the Retirement Researcher blog, and is a monthly columnist for Advisor Perspectives, a RetireMentor for MarketWatch, a contributor to Forbes, and an Expert Panelist for The Wall Street Journal. His research has been discussed in outlets that include print editions of The EconomistThe New York TimesThe Wall Street Journal, and Money Magazine.

Money has the power to destroy, but it can also be an incredibly effective tool for social change. Impact investing – the support of social and environmental projects with a financial return – has become a hot topic on the global stage; poised to eclipse traditional aid by ten times in the next decade. And it has the potential to completely restructure the global economy, making social and environmental responsibility integral to how we move money through society, rather than an afterthought.

In her book REAL IMPACT: The New Economics of Social Change, Morgan Simon argues that impact investing will do a lot of good – if we can get it right. An impact investor with 17 years of experience who has influenced over $150 billion from endowments, families, and foundations – who also manages funds for members of the seventh wealthiest family in America – Simon sees warning signs that impact investment is at a crucial turning point. As investors focus on growth and acceptance, it’s actually in danger of replicating the same mistakes of traditional charity and finance that impact investment was designed to correct. And without the right guiding principles, it has the potential to do more harm than good

On today’s show we talked with Author Morgan Simon about her book Real Impact - The New Economics of Social Change. 

Morgan Simon is a widely recognized leader in impact investment who builds bridges between finance and social justice. Over the past seventeen years, she has influenced over $150 billion from high-net-worth individuals, foundations, and endowments. She supports Pi Investments and the Libra Foundation, and is also co- founder and chair of the nonprofit Transform Finance.
