How financially literate are physicians? White Coat Investor just celebrated our 10 year anniversary of providing personal finance and investing information to our colleagues. How have we done? In this episode we talk with the chief experience officer at Laurel Road https://whitecoatinvestor.com/laurelroad about the physician literacy survey we did together. We discuss how our peers rate their financial literacy, when they plan to retire, what they are investing in, how much they are saving, and more. How do you compare to your peers?

If you’re like most doctors, nobody taught you anything about personal finance or investing during your undergrad, professional school, or residency. And even though your family - and perhaps even your business - rely on you to be the Chief Financial Officer, you have never been given the tools to succeed. Enroll in WCI Financial Boot Camp, a FREE educational email series, and learn to convert your high income to wealth. You will learn the basics of investing, saving, insurance, and more. Your high income alone will not lead to financial success, but as always, we want to help you on your financial journey. Go to https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/financialbootcamp to sign up today! You can do this and The White Coat Investor can help.
