In an interview with Wall Street Journal Wealth Adviser, David Giertz recently talked about the results of a Nationwide Financial survey, which suggests that financial advisers are not doing a good job of advising their clients on social security. According to David Giertz, from a retention standpoint, this is disastrous, since the same survey indicated that 4/5 of clients would consider switching advisers if the social security aspect of their planning process inadequate.
David Giertz added that the reasons for this problem are complex. Firstly, acquiring a deep knowledge of social security is no small feat as the Social Security Handbook contains a whopping 2700 regulations for an adviser to study and understand. Unfortunately, social security is an essential part of the retirement planning puzzle nonetheless. Social security benefits on Bloomberg will make up to 40% of the average client’s retirement, and an adviser’s ignorance on the subject could be costly. Failure to properly time filing for benefits could cost retirees up to 300,000 over the course of 25 years.
David Giertz is a financial adviser with Nationwide Financial. Based in Dublin, Ohio, Giertz is highly sought after as an expert in the media. He was recently interviewed on CNBC about how most people do not pay enough attention to social security when it comes to retirement planning on Facebook. According to Giertz, the fact that private retirement pensions are becoming less and less common means that maximizing social security benefits is essential.
Giertz also pointed out in his interview on moneytips.com that there are many misconceptions about taxation and social security. It is a myth that social security benefits are tax-free. On the contrary, they are subject to taxation and there is no upper limit, although only the first 85% of your benefits are taxable.

And rightly so since the approximation of the amount that Capital Group has helped its clients invest rounds about a generous $1.25 trillion USD. They offer services in financial management and investment solutions to a wide range of clientele ranging from individual investors to multinational corporations.
Recently, Capital Group has seen a significant growth increase after the appointment of new chairman Timothy Armour. Timothy was appointed in 2015 to fill the shoes of the previous Chairman James Rothenberg whose sudden demise forced the management to appoint a new chairman at the earliest. And who better to appoint than someone who has been with the company since the start of his career.
Timothy Armour graduated from Middlebury College in Vermont with a bachelor’s degree in economics and soon after, joined The Associates Program, an internship program for fresh graduates by Capital Group. It was at this point that Timothy advanced in the company and gradually made it up the ranks to the position he is at today.
Timothy Armour currently also serves as the Chief Executive Officer and Principal Executive Officer of the company. Along with other members of the board, Timothy has been making a constant effort to propel the company forward in a favorable direction. Armour is all about effectiveness and expects the same from his employees as well. He believes that only through effectiveness regarding work and strategies implemented, will the company retain its position as one of the top investment management firms in the world.
Timothy Armour’s ventures for the company have also gained a considerable amount of attention. Soon after he was appointed, Capital Group entered into an agreement with Samsung Asset Management for the development of asset management products and to plan further endeavors for Samsung in the Korean Market. Under the partnership, both Capital and Samsung were aiming for the introduction of new products in the Korean market, specially catered to the older generations and senior citizens.
Timothy Armour has been following a business plan which was set up by the previous chairman just weeks before his demise. Following Capital Group’s ideas of unity and proper utilization of every single employee’s talents, Timothy pushes his employees to work hard for the company so that it can stand tall, and maintain its eighty-four-year long legacy towards the corporations and clients they serve.
I know that every community is different, but it is a time for our community to get better as fast as possible. We have charter schools in the area that are doing a better job with our kids, and we want to be sure that we can help these kids so that there is a new way to make our community better. We know that the community can get better if we have better schools, and we have asked Keith Mann out more than once to get help. He has been raising money for us, but he is also a good role model for our kids.
He has been helping our kids with a good scholarship program that people have been applying to every year. That $5000 award is something that is helping people like my kids, and it is showing kids that they can go to college if that is what they really want to do. That is something that all our kids can get into because it gives them a chance of going to college which is something that we have been talking to them for a long time. We also want them to do things for the community like what Keith Mann does.
He recently sent lunch to the police precinct his home, and I know that that might sound small to you. The issue here is that the police and the people of New York are at odds, and working together is a very big deal where we come from. Keith Mann is showing that we can support the police and give the hard working people who do right every day what they need. We can help to make a difference by approaching the situation in a new way, and I think that Keith Mann is teaching us all a lesson we could use.
