Podcast104: An American Perspective….With Eric Brotman

10th September 2018

Paddy Delaney

Welcome to Ireland’s only dedicated and straight-talking Personal Finance & Financial Planning Blog. We are on a mission to make a positive difference and to help people take control of their finances in a meaningful way. If you have a suggestion, question or feedback for us please do drop me a mail here, love to hear from readers.

This week we are joined in conversation with Eric Brotman from US-advisory form Brotman Financial. He is a straight-talker and refreshing to hear the perspective from ‘across the water’.

Eric shares with us many ideas and helps answer many questions including:

  • How best to prepare for ‘graduating into retirement’
  • How to manage investments prudently into retirement
  • What is Fiduciary Advice and how does it differ to other types of financial advice
  • Should I invest a lump sum or clear my Mortgage

He also tells us a little about the challenges faced in the US with the infamous ‘student loans’ situation, which if nothing else might make you feel a little better about your own situation!

Thanks for checking it out……
