Washington, D.C. (July 1, 2014)—Val J. Halamandaris, President of NAHC announced Ric Edelman, three times ranked the #1 independent financial advisor in the nation by Barron’s, will be a Keynote Speaker at the NAHC Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona, on Monday, October 20, 2014.
"We are very pleased that Ric will speak to attendees and give them advice on how to improve their personal finances,” said Halamandaris. “Edelman will announce that his firm, Edelman Financial Services, will provide free financial planning for nurses who are NAHC members as of the Annual Meeting. Additionally, Edelman will announce an initiative to help home care and hospice nurses, the specifics of which will be given at the upcoming meeting. Ric's appearance is just the start of what is expected to be a great long-term relationship with us."
Edelman’s firm, Edelman Financial Services, has 35 offices nationwide and manages nearly $13 billion for 24,000 clients. He is a member of the Financial Advisor Hall of Fame sponsored by Research magazine and a member of CNBC's Digital Financial Advisors Council.
Edelman and his firm have focused on small investors rather than the wealthier investors generally sought after by Wall Street firms. He has long concentrated on helping caring professions such as schoolteachers, firemen, police officers, those in the armed services and especially nurses. Edelman explains that the other caring professionals receive pensions upon retirement but not nurses. "I really feel as if someone needs to help nurses who are underpaid and overworked. We want to provide them with the financial education and advice they need so they can have a bright future," Edelman said.
Edelman is a New York Times bestselling author. Two of his books, The Truth About Money and The Lies About Money have been selected as “book of the year" by the Institute of Financial Literacy. Edelman’s latest book, The Truth About Retirement Plans and IRAs, is a #1 national bestseller. Some one million copies of his books are in print and they have been translated into several languages.
Edelman is perhaps best known as a radio and TV host whose programs have aired for the past 23 years. His radio program reaches 70 markets with more than 1 million listeners weekly, and his TV show airs on more than 200 public television shows nationwide. Edelman also publishes a 16-page monthly newsletter and offers extensive financial education at RicEdelman.com.
Edelman is well known for his philanthropic activities. He served five years on the board of the United Way of the National Capital Area, including two years as chairman. He serves on the Southeast Board of The Boys and Girls Clubs of America and is a member of The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington Foundation Board. He and his wife Jean are benefactors of the Inova Edelman Center for Nursing at Inova Health Foundation and most recently the new Inova Center for Advanced Medical Simulation. They are also supporters of Make-a-Wish Foundation, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and many other charities.
