Kimberly Clouse

Kimberly Clouse, Covestor’s Chief Client Advocate and Advisory Board Chair joins Covestor Radio to talk about the investment metric that really matters.

Covestor Radio is a show about money milestones and investing for your future and brought to you by Covestor, an online marketplace for investing.


Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Kimberly Clouse discuss the following:

  • We spend a lot of time thinking about investments and what we should be doing with our money. But how should we evaluate our investments?
  • So how is real net worth calculated?
  • So let’s go through an example. An erosion of 2/3rds of the return seems really high!
  • Why is inflation important to consider?
  • What, if anything, can an investor do to minimize these effects?

TIP: Discussions about goals and the prudent steps to take to try to reach these goals should be the focus on advisor-client relationships, not whether or not a given investment outperformed the S&P 500 or some other benchmark. Think about what you want to accomplish; make sure you discuss those goals with your advisor. And whether or not you are on track to meet these goals…
