The art of investing in today’s economy — with Jonathan Clements (podcast)

On Tradestreaming Radio, we’re interviewing lots of innovative entrepreneurs, investors, and researchers all trying to make investors better at what they do.  Check out our archives.  Subscribe on iTunes.

Investors have been through a tsunami of challenges the past couple of years.  What I hear right now more than anything is a cacophony of voices, all with differing advice for investors on how to survive in today’s environment.

Jonathan Clements is a beacon of sound, rational investing guidance in a sea of short-termism.  Author of The Little Book of Main Street Money: 21 Simple Truths that Help Real People Make Real Money (Little Books. Big Profits), Clements was the award-winning personal finance columnist for the Wall Street Journal.  He’s now the head of investor education at Citi.

I love Clements’ approach because he’s a pragmatist, synthesizing the best Wall St. has to offer with the do-it-yourself attitude characterizing many of today’s investors.

Clements joins us this week for Tradestreaming Radio.

We discuss:

  • how to navigate today’s investing climate, post financial crisis
  • how experience and time help create investor expertise
  • the struggle investors and advisors have in describing risk
  • why we continue to make decisions antithetical to what we know we should do
