5 of the Best Podcasts for Wealth Management Advisors

As a Wealth Management Advisor, it’s imperative to stay up to date on everything happening in both the market and the industry as a whole. But that’s easier said than done — especially when you’re simultaneously running a business.

The good news is that there are several great podcasts for investment professionals that’ll help you stay informed and in the know on market and industry trends. Here are our suggestions for the best podcasts for financial advisors in 2021.

1. Financial Advisor Success

Hosted by financial services guru Michael Kitces, the “Financial Advisor Success” podcast needs to be on every advisor’s radar. Kitces calls on the insights and experiences he’s learned throughout his career — plus his journey of earning eight financial degrees and designations — and shares tangible, actionable advice and invaluable knowledge in every episode. Kitces also interviews a featured guest in most episodes to broadcast additional information every financial advisor should know.

2. Planet Money

Produced by National Public Radio (NPR), the “Planet Money” podcast feels like a legitimate radio show while still being entertaining, informative and fun to listen to. While it’s geared less toward an audience consisting exclusively of investment professionals, financial advisors can still get a lot out of it. For example, you’ll find yourself walking away from every episode with new ideas on how to convey complex concepts to your clients in ways they can understand. It’ll also arm you with various conversation topics to share with both your clients and colleagues.

3. The Human Advisor

Although not the most conventional or traditional take on wealth management, “The Human Advisor” podcast exists to shift the conversation around the financial advisor career as a whole. Instead of focusing on how many clients you have, the podcast encourages listeners to instead measure success by how well you take care of clients and help them reach their financial goals. Each episode features a forward-thinking financial advisor guest, highlighting the ways they’re making a difference in the real world and doing things that matter. It’s inspiring, helpful and educational –  and will leave you with plenty of ideas on how to improve your own methods in ways that’ll leave you feeling fulfilled and satisfied with your work.

4. The Meb Faber Show

When it comes to podcasts devoted to keeping you informed on today’s ever-changing market, there are perhaps none better than “The Meb Faber Show.” Hosted by the show’s namesake, Meb Faber is co-founder and chief investment officer of Cambria Investment Management and the author of multiple finance books. The podcast will help you grow your knowledge of the market in ways that enable you to help your clients make the best investments possible. The show also features many of the world’s top investment professionals as guests, further solidifying its credibility and reputation as one of the best podcasts for financial advisors.

5. Tortoise QuickTake Podcasts

If you only have a few extra minutes to listen to podcasts throughout your day, then “QuickTake” will quickly become your best friend. Hosted by Tortoise Capital Advisors, each episode clocks in at roughly 7-8 minutes and features updates on timely topics and market trends. Although the podcast is full of quick hitters, each episode helps financial advisors dive deep into industry information that truly matters.
