Hour 1: Matthew Shafer – Cancelled
Joining Amerika Now during the first hour is world-renowned financial advisor and economist, Matthew T. Shafer, who will be discussing his book, The Future of Your Wealth: How the World is Changing and What You Need to Do About It. A Guide for High Net Worth Individuals and Families.
You’ve probably heard of emotional eating, but financial advisor Matthew T. Shafer says emotional investing is a problem that needs to be recognized society-wide, especially since the economy has been in such sharp focus this past half decade.
“The words of an experienced mentor have proven to be spot on throughout my career,” says Shafer, named one of the top 1,000 financial advisors in the U.S. by Barron’s Magazine.
“People become too optimistic and enthusiastic when their investments are on the rise, and too fearful and skeptical when they see a decline,” says Shafer, “And it holds true for all income levels.”
The economic environment has changed quickly and dramatically in the last several years. Many successful investors are uncertain where to turn, what to do with their liquid investments, and how to manage and grow their enterprises considering the dangerous implications of rising taxes and increasing regulations. On top of these concerns, this segment of the population is also being vilified for slow economic growth and unemployment, resulting in a cultural uprising against successful Americans, many of whom have built their wealth up from almost nothing and are representative of the American dream.
In his book, The Future of Your Wealth, Shafer advocates for this group and provides a reality check for many Americans who aren’t even aware they’re being considered within this demographic.
Tonight, Matthew Shafer will discuss how to keep your emotions from dictating your financial future.
Matthew T. Shafer is a graduate of American University, where he obtained Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees in Economics, with a concentration in International Financial Markets. In 2005, Matthew attended the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley, where he obtained the title of Certified Investment Management Analyst (CIMA) and joined the Investment Management Consultants Association (IMCA).
Matthew has been named one of the top 1,000 Financial Advisors in the U.S. by Barron’s Magazine (2009) and has received several national recognitions, inlcuding “Premier Advisor” by the National Association of Board Certified Advisory Practices (2012).
