The following informative interview was provided by Richard Schmitt, author of the book 401(k) Day Trading and creator of the app Rebalance, which provides guidance on specific fund transfers that facilitate more frequent rebalancing or 401(k) day trading of retirement savings based on current stock market conditions.
Richard Schmitt is an Adjunct Professor teaching retirement planning at the Edward S. Ageno School of Business at Golden Gate University in San Francisco. Putting into practice his background as a numbers guy in a world looking for the means to retire, he developed “401(k) Day Trading” as a better way for individuals to manage their retirement savings in an uncertain market. Lately his word has been spreading through features on Fox Business, ReutersTV, TheStreet, Business Talk Radio, KMA, and KCBS, among other media outlets.
Having worked in the retirement plan industry since the origin of 401(k) plans, Mr. Schmitt has assisted companies in the design, implementation, and administration of 401(k), 403(b), 457, and other retirement savings plans for over 25 years. Before joining academia, he managed corporate compensation and benefit plans for a couple of the largest U.S. companies based in Silicon Valley. He also served other Fortune 500 companies’ retirement plans as a senior consultant at major international consulting firms. He is a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries, a Member of the American Academy of Actuaries, and an Enrolled Actuary.
