    If You Can't Beat It ...

    "Be the market. Don't try to beat the market." This mantra has dominated Wall Street for two decades, with investors sending trillions upon trillions of dollars into cut-rate, passive funds that track the broader market. The stock commission is dead. Equity investing has never been so accessible. What does this mean for you? Eric Balchunas, Bloomberg Intelligence ETF guru, weighs in.

An eloquent wonk that guides a wonderful conversation.

I feel so lucky to have Full Disclosure based here in Richmond. But it’s not completely Richmond centric, Roben brings all of his worldly experiences to the table. The catalog of podcasts are deep. It ranges from James Beard award winning chefs, to hard nosed journalists talking about their latest coverage. Roben can hang well with any guest. Full Disclosure is hands down my favorite long form podcast. #arbitrage.
