Cindy Couyoumjian – Redefining Financial Literacy: Unlocking the Hidden Forces of Your Financial Future. This is episode 404 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

As the founder of Cinergy Financial, Cindy Couyoumjian believes that financial literacy is a moral imperative, which is why she devoted her professional life to help people understand the constantly evolving financial and economic landscape. As a Certified Financial Planner (CFP), with 35 years in the industry, 8 securities licenses (the series 63, 6, 65, 7, 22, 24, 31, and 26), as well as a California Insurance License #0719038, Couyoumjian has become not only a leader in the financial industry, but also an innovator of investment methodology. Her passion can be heard with her weekend broadcasts on Los Angeles Radio Station KABC. 

A little about Cindy’s book…

Redefining Financial Literacy: Unlocking the Hidden Forces of Your Financial Future

In her book Redefining Financial Literacy, certified financial planner Cindy Couyoumjian explains the micro and macro risks to retirement portfolios. She provides an in-depth look at how the current economic system impacts retail investors and why the standard model misses the mark.  She proposes diversification through The REALM® Model and lays out alternative investment opportunities, such as REITs and private equity.

We are going to talk about Cindy’s book – Redefining Financial Literacy: Unlocking the Hidden Forces of Your Financial Future, also key components to financial literacy, and we will answer this question – Why are so many Americans financially illiterate?
