He was named a Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Ambassador and appeared in the Board’s media campaign in 2014.

Dan noted that end of the year is a perfect time to dump tax losers and to also clean up your portfolio. He warned that you should compare your positions to the appropriate benchmarks. Dan mentioned an interesting Morningstar article about 529 plans and also mentioned that immediate annuities are once again back on his front burner.

Finally, Dan was nice enough to mention the fact that I was named one of the top 10 Influencers on LinkedIn...and I am keeping some pretty fancy company on this list!
