What Trump’s fiduciary memo really means
In this week’s show, Andy and Bob discuss the recent memorandum issued by President Trump asking for a re-examination of the conflict of interest/fiduciary rule – and what it really means for the everyday investor. Spoiler alert: it’s not as big of a deal as the media is making it out to be, especially for current Financial Engines clients.

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner – so in honor of the holiday, financial expert Kelly O’Donnell gives some tips on how to talk about money with your significant other.
