Weekly Personal Finance Round For April 17th 2015


This week at LSM Insurance, adding to our life insurance experts roundup, we interviewed the principal of Aleph Investments, David Merkel. LSM Insurance also guest posted at Jonathan Chevreau’s blog Findependence Hub. The article tackled the topic of when you should buy life annuities. Our other article for this week included 10 financial planning designations that you need to know about.
