In this episode…

Traditional investment vehicles are primarily controlled by Wall Street and overseen by corporate entities that levy a charge to administer your equity and bond portfolios. These corporate entities derive profits from your investments even in a bear market, and they advocate a wait-and-watch approach while you continue to experience losses. How can you build and maintain wealth without relying on Wall Street?

Former Wall Street executive Jason Mandel realized there had to be a way to invest without losing considerable amounts of money in the process. After leaving the Wall Street scene, he discovered absolute return investments. This alternative investment stream involves purchasing untaxed products like life insurance, allowing you to invest and borrow funds with limited loss and risk. These assets generate a higher return and are protected against creditors. By investing in life insurance rather than a traditional 401k, you can receive tax-free income in retirement and leave a monetary legacy for your family.

In today’s episode of What The Teck?, Jason Mandel, the Founder and CEO of Mandel Family Office, joins Rolando Rosas and Dave Kelly to share Wall Street insights and how to invest without risk. Jason reveals the investor secrets Wall Street won’t tell you, the importance of transparency and honesty on Wall Street, and why he left Wall Street after becoming diabetic.

Rolando Rosas 1:12

Welcome to What The Teck? your gateway to business strategies and tech secrets, shaping today’s workplace. You know, no more shadowy, as well as most glamorized Places to Work has always been Wall Street that we say

Dave Kelly 1:27

lead us to believe that on on some of the movies, I wonder if they’ll ever be a blockbuster movie about organizations that are selling voice cloud service?

Rolando Rosas 1:36

Oh, well, you know, the most famous one is kind of zoom ish. There’s a movie in the works or book in the works that talks about zoom. But you know, you can’t rule it out. If it’s it has the potential make money better believe it’ll be a movie

Dave Kelly 1:52

because a lot of awesome scenes and some of these movies that add you know, being a sales guy for 20 plus years, a lot of people will go back and reference that. So looking forward to this conversation today.

Rolando Rosas 2:04

But you know, Dave, instead of Zoo, let’s go back to Wall Street because Wall Street is a lot of people do we get daily barrage of for me. I mean, I watched the news and CNBC and all the different financial Bloomberg and the rest. And you know, we get a take, you know, what we see on the screen? If you’re, if you’re old like us, and you watch the TV, like, I don’t know if the kids are watching the TV, but I do I still watch the TV still. And I do consume a hefty amount of stuff on my phone as well. But we have somebody today that can give us some insights into Wall Street and what’s happening at Wall Street deal. I’m curious to find out if AI is impacting what’s happening there. I suspect it is because I don’t think any workplace is immune from AI and how it’s shaping the workplace there. And what’s what we can expect both if you’re an investor, whether you have a little bit stashed in a 401 K somewhere, or you are you know, like some of the entrepreneurs that listen to us, you’ve got a lot more stashed in there, and you got a lot more riding on the market. So I want to peel back the curtain a little bit with our guest today. But before we get to adjacent, Dave, do we have big props?

Florida, also known as New York South these

Jason Mandel 4:04

days for sure. I came a little while I came in 2019 before the masses, but you’re absolutely right. It is a lot of inflow from the northeast, which is good and bad. But it is a lot of fun now and there are a substantial amount of financial firms that are relocating here due to the tax situation here very favorable

Rolando Rosas 4:21

known when you don’t have state income tax in the state of Florida. Yeah. And Dave’s in one of those states to accept it’s icy cold at this time of the year. It
