The future comes sooner than you might think. Reading What's Your Future Worth? is a great way to prepare. -- Steve Vernon, FSA, author of Money for Life
What’s your Future Worth? shows how to use the concept of ‘present value’ to make better decisions in real life. A well-written meditation on Time, Chance and Value, this book is a must-read for professionals and the general public alike. If only bankers had had this book in the early 2000’s, we might have been spared the Great Recession! --James Kenney FSA, EA and CEO of Kenney Consulting LLC Every significant decision a person makes is based on how it affects their future. But when it comes to figuring that out, most people end up improvising along the way. Financial professional, Peter Neuwirth, can’t help readers predict the future, but he can explain how to use Present Value as a way of simplifying and systematically evaluating all the outcomes that could arise from choosing one path over another. Present Value is helpful when making any type of decision, such as whether to fix your old car or buy a new one, or to contribute more to your 401(k), or to the potentially life altering, such as choosing a medical treatment or a new career.
Neuwirth offers an accessible, step-by-step guide to using the powerful concept of Present Value. The book is filled with examples that anyone can relate to.
Peter Neuwirth has over thirty years of actuarial experience. He is currently a senior consultant with Towers Watson and is one of its subject matter experts. He is a fellow of the Society of Actuaries, a member of the American Academy of Actuaries, and an enrolled actuary. In his personal life, Peter has used Present Value to decide if he should take a time-share company up on its offer of a cheap vacation rental in Kauai, what kind of running shoes to buy, and whether to get married, among other quandaries.
