Written by a practicing emergency physician, The White Coat Investor is a high-yield manual that specifically deals with the financial issues facing medical students, residents, physicians, dentists, and similar high-income professionals. Doctors are highly-educated and extensively trained at making difficult diagnoses and performing life saving procedures. However, they receive little to no training in business, personal finance, investing, insurance, taxes, estate planning, and asset protection. This book fills in the gaps and will teach you to use your high income to escape from your student loans, provide for your family, build wealth, and stop getting ripped off by unscrupulous financial professionals. Straight talk and clear explanations allow the book to be easily digested by a novice to the subject matter yet the book also contains advanced concepts specific to physicians you won't find in other financial books. This book will teach you how to: Graduate from medical school with as little debt as possible Escape from student loans within two to five years of residency graduation Purchase the right types and amounts of insurance Decide when to buy a house and how much to spend on it Learn to invest in a sensible, low-cost and effective manner with or without the assistance of an advisor Avoid investments which are designed to be sold, not bought Select advisors who give great service and advice at a fair price Become a millionaire within five to ten years of residency graduation Use a "Backdoor Roth IRA" and "Stealth IRA" to boost your retirement funds and decrease your taxes Protect your hard-won assets from professional and personal lawsuits Avoid estate taxes, avoid probate, and ensure your children and your money go where you want when you die Minimize your tax burden, keeping more of your hard-earned money Decide between an employee job and an independent contractor job Choose between sole proprietorship, Limited Liability Company, S Corporation, and C Corporation Take a look at the first pages of the book by clicking on the Look Inside feature Praise For The White Coat Investor "Much of my financial planning practice is helping doctors to correct mistakes that reading this book would have avoided in the first place." - Allan S.

Managed care and government-led initiatives to control health care costs have decreased physician compensation. Physicians must now carefully plan their practices and seek financial security in a manner that is markedly different from other professionals.

This innovative guide confronts the reality that personal financial planning for physicians is decidedly more complex than it is in other professions. Financial Planning for Physicians and Advisors describes a personal financial planning program to help doctors avoid the perils of harsh economic sacrifice. It outlines how to select a knowledgeable financial advisor and develop a comprehensive personal financial plan, and includes important sections on: insurance and risk management, asset diversification and modern portfolio construction, income tax and retirement planning, and succession and estate planning. When fully implemented with a professional's assistance, this book will help physicians and their financial advisors develop an effective long-term financial plan.

Genre: Medical

In comments that were unfortunately prescient, Dr. Doroghazi said in the first edition "the author feels we are currently experiencing a real estate bubble." And in anticipation of the credit crisis, he said "banks are far too lenient in their lending practices...the problem is that bankers are often not lending their own money...considering that a significant percentages of mortgages are sold to Fannie Mae (FNM) and Freddie Mac (FRE), the problem is now actually everyone’s." This new and expanded edition provides commonsense advice that all investors, physicians and non-physicians will find profitable in these difficult times. Learn about the power of thrift, the magnificence of compound interest, the malevolence of debt and the perniciousness of fees. See how to pay off the mortgage by age 45, fund your children’s education and retire at a reasonable age rather than continue to work because you must.
