Be skeptical about private placements

July 20, 2019

On this week’s Allworth’s Money Matters, Scott and Pat discuss the hidden risks in private placement investments.

Scott and Pat speak with a caller looking to diversify by investing (or speculating) in gold. A Vacaville man with $1 million saved asks what a safe withdrawal rate is for him. A Los Angeles caller asks if she should refinance her mortgage. Scott and Pat advise a caller who is considering drawing Social Security based on her incarcerated ex-husband’s work history. A man with $2 million saved asks if he should buy long-term care insurance. Finally, a caller asks if Social Security’s Windfall Elimination Provision will affect his benefit.
