What do you find most rewarding about your work?
I enjoy teaching people how to make their financial future different. It is very rewarding to know that you are helping people send their kids to school and live the rest of their lives. I also have the Mutual Fund Store Foundation that is important to me because it gives me the ability to give back (www.MutualFundStore.com/foundation).
"Bold offers a very approachable introduction to the issues of investing and building long-term wealth. A fine starting point for readers who want to take control of their financial future, but don't know where to begin." --Elizabeth Ody, Kiplinger's Personal Finance "Adam Bold left a lucrative wire-house brokerage career for the risk of going it alone and the rewards of being able to give unbiased advice to mutual fund investors who are too often steered by the concerns of marketers rather than their advisers. Bold has integrity. That's why I use him as a frequent source." --Michael Maiello, Forbes
