You may have noticed that our talented staff members are more frequently being published outside our own Merriman blog and website. We’re proud to tell you this occurred twice in the past few days:

Director of Research Larry Katz’s article, “Three keys to a richer retirement,” was published on

Senior Editor Rich Buck was a featured blogger on with a post on “The best graduation gift ever.”

Publishing in the national press allows us to share the expertise and writing talents of our team with a national audience. Since a big legacy of our company is providing free online financial education to the public, we feel like this activity is a perfect fit with who we are.

We hope you enjoy these two articles and future ones to come.
