As seen in the USA Today feature:

Gregory Ricks is the founder and CEO of Gregory Ricks & Associates, Inc. and the radio talk show host of “Winning at Life with Gregory Ricks,” on Rush Radio 99.5 WRNO on Saturday mornings. He is Louisiana’s 401k and Retirement Authority and author of the upcoming book Winning at Life in Retirement. He is a nationally sought after wealth manager, tax reduction strategist and Ed Slott Elite IRA advisor who has been educating, advising and guiding clients for 28 years. He has a unique vision and ability to look forward and help retirees see the financial road ahead so they know with certainty where they are, where they’re headed and where they’ll end up at any given point in time up to 10, 15 or 20 years out including changes in direction. He does the math to ensure their monies are using the right tools and doing the right jobs for the right period of time so they “win at life in retirement” by enjoying the lifestyle they’re accustomed to without fear of running out of money.

Ricks is Louisiana’s 401k and Retirement Authority. His firm gears its advice to making money last by showing people the warning signs that he knows from experience and preemptively guiding them away from danger. The firm deals in a lot of assets that are not correlated to the market and are alternatives to Wall Street.

Using the tactic of momentum, Ricks still uses the market but in a safer way. His firm is not day, week or month trading, but if the market is going up and showing an indicator that it is going to continue to climb, a “go ahead” signal is given. On the other side of the coin, if the market is going bad, the firm has an “exit” signal or a hard number that takes all emotion out of it.
