With the Great Recession safely behind us, one place to weather any financial storm is a money market fund. Money funds are considered one of the surest investments available, outside of putting your money in a bank account. On the next MoneyWise Live, hosts Rob West and Steve Moore discuss this low-risk, popular investment with financial editor, Matt Bell.
Matt joined SMI in 2012. He leads SMI’s content strategy — managing the company’s monthly editorial calendar, writing many of the articles, sourcing content from outside the company, and either writing or overseeing much of what appears on our website. He also represents SMI in various radio guest appearances.
Prior to joining SMI, Matt was an independent biblical money management writer and speaker. He is the author of four personal finance books that were published by NavPress, including Money and Marriage: A Complete Guide for Engaged and Newly Married Couples and The Grad's Guide to Money (written for high school seniors and college freshmen). He does some outside speaking as well at churches, universities, conferences, and retreats throughout the country. Matt has been involved in stewardship ministry since 1990 when he began serving in the Good $ense ministry at Willowcreek Community Church.
Rob West is the host of the nationally syndicated radio programs MoneyWise Live and The MoneyWise Minute. Rob also serves as the President and spokesperson of Kingdom Advisors, an international community of financial professionals who are specialists in delivering biblically wise financial advice. Rob has dedicated his professional career to work at the intersection of faith and finance having led a successful faith-based financial services firm and speaking frequently on the topic. Rob and his wife, Julie, live in Marietta, GA with their four children.
Steve Moore enjoyed a brief career in the music industry before trading in his drum sticks for a microphone. He worked in commercial and public radio, then joined Larry Burkett at Christian Financial Concepts, helping to grow the radio network to more than 1,200 stations. He started MoneyWise with Howard Dayton in 2011. Steve and his wife, Marcia, live in Gainesville, GA and have two grown children.
