Dec 09, 2010, 18:15 ET from Rick Ferri

TROY, Mich., Dec. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Rick Ferri, one of the nation's most recognized and respected experts on low-cost investing, today launched his own website, www.RickFerri.com. The site extends Rick's long-established goal to educate investors and financial advisors on the benefits of low-cost investing using index funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), and other sensibly priced products. The site integrates social media platforms on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube, so followers can track updates on Rick's fight against high investment fees.

Individual investors and investment advisors will find a number of useful resources on the website to help them understand why low fees lead to increased return and a higher probability for achieving financial success. The website includes videos on Rick's investment philosophy, information on upcoming speaking engagements, recent media mentions and appearances, and a blog devoted to Rick's thoughts on current investing and economic topics. It also hosts a free download of Rick's first book, Serious Money, Straight Talk About Investing for Retirement.

RickFerri.com is being launched in conjunction with the publication of Rick's latest book The Power of Passive Investing, published by Wiley & Sons, Inc. This new book draws together the strongest arguments to date for a passive investing strategy across every asset class, and includes an introduction by Vanguard Group founder John C. Bogle.

Together, the new website and book present a comprehensive case for the benefits of passive investing and systematically documents the futility of trying to beat the market. Rick hopes to build on the thousands of investors he's helped over the decades both as a professional advisor and in his writings, including five previous books.

"My website will be an important platform in my continuing mission to educate and inform investors, letting them know that they don't have to accept high fees that eat away at their return," Ferri said. "I look forward to engaging the online community and help spread the gospel of low-cost passive investing."
