CHICAGO, July 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The popularity of podcasts is growing exponentially these days and for good reason. They're very accessible and many times entertaining. They also provide a great way to gain information on a variety of topics. More importantly published reports show they're also changing the way people learn about money and investing, especially for those with a longer time horizon.
Against this backdrop, Zacks Investment Management is launching its own podcast called The Steady Investor. It's aimed at using sound logic and proven strategies in longer term investing. "Far too often, we hear a lot of market commentary, forecasts and opinions on the stock market and retirement planning, yet you still ask--How does it all connect and affect me?" says Mitch Zacks, Managing Director and Portfolio Manager at Zacks Investment Management and host of the program. "It's important to understand the bigger picture and more importantly the aspects of retirement planning."
The Steady Investor is cohosted by Mark Vickery. In addition to current financial issues and trends, the show will explore the market and retirement planning in a way that listeners won't have to be an economist to understand. It will provide information to help keep them in smooth waters as well as explain what to do when the water becomes choppy.
The premiere episode of The Steady Investor streams live Thursday, July 7th from 11:00 am to Noon Central Time and each Thursday thereafter, on VoiceAmerica.com at http://www.voiceamerica.com/show/2573/the-steady-investor. Future On Demand episodes can also be accessed in the Business section of VoiceAmerica.com. Links to episodes will also be available on the Zacks Investment Management website at www.Zimwealth.com.
No matter what level of investing or retirement planning knowledge you have, this show promises to be informative combined with fun facts that you may not have known.
