J.K. Lasser Pro Integrating Investments and the Tax Code: Using the Tax Code to Enhance Returns and Add Value
"Bill Reichenstein and William Jennings are two of the industry's very few true pioneers. This book should be on the short list of anyone interested in private wealth management, whether expressed in thousands or millions of dollars."
-Jean L. P. Brunel, CFA, Editor of the Journal of Wealth Management and author of Integrated Wealth Management
"Reichenstein and Jennings tackle many key issues facing individual investors, including 'How should you differentiate between the before-tax dollars in retirement accounts and the after-tax dollars in taxable accounts?' and 'Should bonds be held in retirement accounts and stocks in taxable accounts or vice versa?' They provide valuable insights that certainly should add value to you and your clients."
-Brian Bruce, Editor in Chief of Journal of Investing and Director of Global Investments at PanAgora Asset Management
"If you want to be on the leading edge of thinking about integrated wealth management, then read this book. While the traditional approach searches for optimization in perfect markets and limits the portfolio to financial assets, these authors tackle real-world complexities and integrate other sources of wealth into the portfolio. Extending the analysis is vital in a world where financial decisions are increasingly the responsibility of the individual."
-Conrad S. Ciccotello, JD, PhD, Editor of Financial Services Review and Director of Graduate Personal Financial Planning Programs at Georgia State University
