First launched in February 2018, The Adviser You Can Talk To Podcast began with a focus on the investment topics that matter for every investor, from the curious novice to the most seasoned professional.
In the years since, we’ve expanded to cover a broad range of topics in wealth management, from the impact of tax law changes to how to get the most out of Social Security.
Our intention in creating the podcast was to help listeners experience the kind of stimulating and informative discussions our employees have with our clients and each other on a regular basis.
“We’ve always believed that an educated client is our best client,” said Adviser Investments Chairman Dan Wiener.
“Working on these podcasts really helped refine my thinking about how to approach money and what money can help you accomplish when I speak with clients,” said Manager of Financial Planning Andrew Busa.
With over 90,000 unique downloads, averaging about 2,500 per month, we think we’ve made a good start on our mission. We’re proud to have reached this milestone—but we couldn’t, and wouldn’t, have gotten this far without the help and support of our listeners and subscribers.
“I think the podcast has been a nice reminder that we’re more than just an investment firm; we’re a wealth management firm,” said Director of Research Jeff DeMaso. “We’ve been able to release some episodes that have been really impactful for our clients.”
Over the years, the podcast has proved a powerful communications tool for our firm. During the initial wave of COVID-19 lockdowns, our team released weekly episodes to keep our clients up to date on how we were responding to the crisis and the turmoil it created in the markets.
“The podcast allowed us to communicate in real time and explain our investment approach in that pretty tumultuous period, both in the markets and in our lives,” said DeMaso.
As the podcast grew in reach and sophistication, we added an in-house recording studio to enable us to record broadcast-standard audio and video messages.
The Adviser You Can Talk To Podcast features hosts including Wiener, DeMaso and Busa, as well as Chief Investment Officer Jim Lowell, along with a rotating team of experienced investment professionals. They discuss timely and informative topics for investors of all types. Behind the scenes, Assistant Marketing Manager Kailey Steele and Marketing Associate Ashlyn Melvin have stepped up, helping turn our experts’ conversations into a professional, polished show.
