Financial 3×5 Card to Book – All The Financial Info You Need

What if you could learn everything you need about finance in less than 10 minutes?

Well, according to University of Chicago professor Harold Pollard, everything that you need to know about money can fit on a simple 3×5 card.  Pollard was chatting with journalist Helaine Olen about how necessary most of the financial planning industry is when Olen challenged Pollard to put everything down on paper.  He did…and it went viral.  Pollard had since published an entire book with Olen that further discusses the card.

Why would this be important to you? Because instead of paying for a financial advisor this 3×5 card has all the information you’ll need.

  1. I absolutely love this advice and couldn’t agree more with it. I think some of the biggest ones that I see my young professional peers struggling with are: not maxing out their 401(k), (some don’t even contribute enough to get the match), not paying off credit cards in full each month (interest will be a slippery slope to get out of control), and not holding their financial advisors to the fiduciary standard (most of my peers don’t even know what that is).

    I personally have been focusing more on ‘watching out for the fees’, and was amazed when I found I could be paying 0.08% instead of 0.8% in my 401(k) for a similar fund!

  2. Love it – so simple and invaluable for anyone really. I strongly urge people to take a look at this. Only thing I would add is that people should automate their savings -> this is the secret to achieving that 20% savings rate every month
