Episode #8 – Dr. William F. Sharpe, American Economist and Nobel Prize Winner

March 19, 2021

It’s not every day you get to interview a Nobel Laureate. I am honored that Dr. William F. Sharpe sat down to talk with me about the Sharpe Ratio, retirement planning, and why his focus has evolved from accumulation of wealth for retirement and how firms can better manage those assets, to helping individuals plan to use those assets to finance their retirement. We also discussed his free eBook, Retirement Income Planning with Scenario Matrices, at length. You can access the eBook & software he references with the link below
