The President of Nationwide Financial, David Giertz recently went on an interview on the Wall Street Journals’ program, Wealth Adviser. The one-minute long video snippet begins with the host, Veronica Dagher.

Social Security and Advisors

The hostess, Veronica, wasted no time and dug straight to work.

Also, 4 out of 5 people were going to change their adviser if they weren’t talking to them about the retirement and social security measures in place.
