When the Wall Street Journal recently reported on problems faced by older investors, Michael Gilfix of Gilfix & La Poll Associates LLP was prominently featured.
The article examined issues that we all must be aware of as we age: some retirees, even when dementia is not an issue, have trouble identifying riskier investments or warning signs, and financial scammers often take advantage of this.
The Wall Street Journal piece told the story of a client we helped with just this type of situation.
The article is an important reminder that older investors and their families need to be on guard. Even highly intelligent and sophisticated investors can fall prey to scams and bad investments.
As Michael Gilfix states in the article, it is also important for adult children of retirees to monitor their parents' financial health just as they would their physical and mental condition.
