Expert advice for changing how you think about money in order to rebuild and protect your retirement assets.

Investors who suffered tremendous losses in the market meltdown of 2008 want to know how to protect themselves from being so vulnerable in the future. In Reclaim Your Nest Egg: Take Control of Your Financial Future, Ken Kamen shows investors how they gave up control of their finances and how they can get it back again. Kamen explains:

  • How to recognize the psychological pitfalls, the distracting “noise” from the media and the internet, and the bad financial advice that derailed your planning.
  • How to develop a set of investment principles that can serve as your personal Commandments and keep you on course.
  • How to adopt an investment approach that maximizes the potential for growth while reducing risk, and how to implement it without being confused or overwhelmed.

Reclaim Your Nest Egg helps readers find a customized investment strategy that suits their budget and temperament and gives them their best chance of meeting their retirement goals.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Reclaim Your Nest Egg: Take Control of Your Financial Future

"I like Ken because he explains everything in plain English—which happens to be my first language."
Yogi Berra

"Ken Kamen's Reclaim Your Nest Egg is the most sensible, straightforward, andcomprehensible book on personal finance I've read. Calm and reasonable in its tone, detailed in its advice, the book sends the key message that everyone has to be his or her own financial advisor and gives you the confidence to take on the task."
Howard Fineman, Washington columnist, Newsweek, and MSNBC analyst

"This is a timely and important book—a road map for individual investors who want to take their power back and assume personal responsibility for addressing their future financial needs. Kamen offers a lifetime of experience and hard-won wisdom to those whose confidence has been shaken by the continuing market turmoil and uncertainty of recent years. His advice is reassuring but realistic."
John Taft, CEO, RBC Wealth Management, U.S., Chairman,Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA)

"Ken Kamen gives a critical lesson for managing your nest egg: The key to success comes long before you're ready to select a stock or a bond. Read Ken's commonsense approach, and you'll see a remarkably straightforward path to financial success."
Bob O'Brien, Stocks Editor, Barron's.com

"Vivid, witty writing and empowering validation that you can take control. Along with information, Ken Kamen provides insights into managing and protecting your money plus guidance for assembling and managing the professionals who can help you Reclaim Your Nest Egg."
Deborah Bailey, Chairwoman, The Bailey Foundation

"Ken brings to his writing the same pragmatic skills he brought to his role as an expert advising my Congressional committee. He gives you clarity about what caused past missteps and offers actionable advice for getting better results in the future."
James Greenwood, President and CEO, Biotechnology Industry Organization; former chairman, U.S. House of Representatives Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee

From the Inside Flap:

We all have the same goals in managing nest egg funds: To maintain our lifestyles. To not run out of dollars before we run out of heartbeats. And, ideally, to leave a legacy behind.

There are many places to lay the blame if you're feeling insecure about reaching your financial goals. But, Ken Kamen says, ground zero for turning things around is you.

Managing money can be a daunting task, not just because of the number of choices but also because all the issues you face are unknown. How many years do I need to plan for? What will future costs be? How will tomorrow's events affect the market and my investments? If you aren't confident in your ability to take charge of your finances, you're likely to give up control.

Kamen helps you identify the many ways you may have given up control of your money—allowing your "head trash" to get in the way of rational decision making; permitting noise from information overload to cloud your judgments; and succumbing to the persuasion of financial services industry representatives offering products that may not suit your particular needs.

Awareness is the first step to Reclaim Your Nest Egg because, says Kamen, how you think about your money is more important than any single investment decision you will ever make. The next step is putting that awareness into action.

In clear, jargon-free language, Kamen offers principles that will keep you confidently on course as you navigate your financial future. He reduces the investment process to basics and gives you a framework to reengineer your game plan. And he offers protective strategies, from obtaining "wealth insurance" against catastrophic events to getting the best results from professional advisors.

This isn't a how-to book that promotes a formula for personal financial success. It's a why-to book whose insights into your decision-making will surprise you, guide you, and ensure that you Reclaim Your Nest Egg and Take Control of Your Financial Future.
