Ric Edelman, The Truth About Your Future

“We are faced with financial decisions on a daily basis…and most Americans are failing financially because of a lack of knowledge.”

Ric Edelman

Ric Edelman, Preeminent Personal Finance Thought Leader and Founder of The Truth About Your Future, shared the story behind his title with us on January 17, 2023.

Ric Edelman is a #1 New York Times bestselling author of 10 books on personal finance. He was ranked three times as the nation’s #1 Independent Financial Advisor by Barron’s and founded the nation’s largest financial planning firm, now serving 1.3 million clients and managing $300 billion in AUM.

Edelman is in both Research Magazine’s and Barron’s Financial Advisor Halls of Fame, and recipient of IARFC’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Investment Advisor, RIABiz and InvestmentNews all named him one of the most influential people in the investment management profession. He is the #1 New York Times best-selling author of 10 books on personal finance with more than one million copies in print in seven languages.


Ric grew up in New Jersey, the youngest of three in a family full of entrepreneurs. While his initial aspirations were in politics, he later launched his own financial firm after an experience with an advisor left him amazed at the lack of integrity in the advice he was given. That instinct served him well, as he is now one of the nation’s success stories.
