Ric Edelman is ready for something new. After more than three decades, the iconic advisor and RIA pioneer is leaving Edelman Financial Engines, the $270 billion juggernaut that began in 1986 as a small practice he founded with his wife, Jean.
Edelman made his mark on investors and advisors through his radio show, books, articles, media appearances, philanthropic activities, and more. But his most profound impact was his firm, which began in a fit of pique and eventually grew to become No. 1 on Barron’s Top 100 RIA Firms ranking.
