Woodland Hills, CA (PressExposure) July 14, 2011 -- As public trust in traditional investing institutions continues to wane, financial analyst Chris Poindexter, Senior Writer for National Gold Group and Contributing Writer to Townhall Finance, is one of a select few experts stepping in to fill the void. Poindexter writes articles filled with investment tips and advice that everyday people can use to secure their wealth.
"I believe that people are smart enough to make their own decisions," Poindexter said. "Though obviously you should always discuss your investment decisions with an expert before making any purchases, I don't see why you can't have your own opinions when you walk into the meeting. When you sit down with an advisor, you're paying that guy's commission. There's nothing wrong with having information, asking questions, and making them earn their money."
For example, Poindexter's recent article on Townhall Finance, published July 11, was a succinct and easy to understand guide to buying gold and silver (Found here -http://finance.townhall.com/columnists/chrispoindexter/2011/07/11/buying_gold_and_silver) which explored both the financial and legal aspects of investing in and storing gold. Though many financial advisors tend to shy away from recommending precious metals to their clients, Poindexter's article actually sent a large number of his readers to financial firms specializing in precious metals, notably National Gold Group for which he writes for. Poindexter wants his readers to know their options and make informed decisions.
"I don't really tell anyone to do anything," Poindexter elaborated, "I just try to walk people through my thought process and give them a framework to work in. What's important to me is that they know they have options outside of the normal avenues, if for no other reason than to know that they're available."
Poindexter's articles appear weekly on Townhall Finance (finance.townhall.com) and National Gold Group's website (NationalGoldGroup.com). Townhall Finance is part of the Townhall network of news websites that serves a conservative audience. National Gold Group is a full service financial firm specializing in gold and silver as investment vehicles. NGG is recognized as one of the top firms in its industry.
