Finance/Insurance: RIC EDELMAN
FINANCIAL ADVISER, RADIO PERSONALITY AND AUTHOR, FAIRFAX
It’s been a year of change for popular financial adviser Edelman.
In 1986, Edelman and his wife, Jean, founded Edelman Financial Services. In 2018, the firm merged with a West Coast firm to form Edelman Financial Engines. Edelman walked away from his leadership role in that company in June 2021.
In December 2021, the last episode of Edelman’s weekly radio program, “The Ric Edelman Show,” aired, ending a nearly 30-year run.
That doesn’t mean he’s retired.
In January, the Rowan University alum launched a new radio show, “The Truth About Your Future.” He’s also registering investors for master classes and writing a monthly newsletter.
Edelman also stays busy promoting his latest book on personal finance — “The Truth About Crypto: A Practical, Easy-to-Understand Guide to Bitcoin, Blockchain, NFTs, and Other Digital Assets,” which came out in May.
