Bankruptcy: Investor’s Perspective - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. During this show we’ll share a wealth of information on topic that investors & savers seldom have to deal with – Bankruptcy. It’s very rare that investors file bankruptcy, but there was clearly a surge during the Great Recession. Have you wondered why? Certainly they weren’t all clients of Bernie Madoff or MF Global.
As we heard on a recent show, our portfolios can be negatively affected by one of our publicly traded investments filing for bankruptcy. Is that the only time you have to worry about bankruptcy? Let’s not forget about investments in private companies, landlords dealing with tenant bankruptcy, private mortgage lenders, and business owners who have clients file bankruptcy. What about your bank CD’s if the FDIC filed for bankruptcy? Municipal bonds if a city files bankruptcy? Or what about Treasury Bills or other sovereign debt if that country files bankruptcy?!
