​Financial blogs worth reading While the list from Kitces.com highlights the Top 50 Financial Advisor Blogs in the U.S., they provide great information for investors and financial advisors alike

Financial advisors north of the border should take notice of how well done many of these blogs are both in terms of the quality of content but also in their appearance.

In 2015, WP will begin compiling a list of the best financial advisor bloggers in Canada. By the end of next year we hope to release our very own list. If you have a blog or know of one worthy of our attention please feel free to let us know about it.

In the meantime, here are three we especially like.

The first is Sizemore Insights, a blog from Dallas-based financial advisor Charles Sizemore. It’s important that I point out that as a freelancer with InvestorPlace.com I had the opportunity to work with Sizemore. Sure, I might be impartial, but he is one of the brightest financial minds I’ve come across in my time writing about investments. Not to mention he’s got an excellent sense of humour which is vital for anyone working in the financial game.

The two top-ranked blogs according to Kitces.com, The Big Picture and The Reformed Broker, are run by Barry Ritholtz and Josh Brown respectively. The duo operate Ritholtz Wealth Management, a New York-based registered investment advisory firm providing fee-only services to individuals across the U.S. Using data-driven research, Ritholtz Wealth Management strives to be different from the rest of the industry.

Of the two blogs, The Reformed Broker gets our nod because of Josh Brown’s ability to share important information in an irreverent, straightforward manner. Add it to your list of must reads.

Our final pick is the Chicago Financial Planner blog run by Chicago fee-only advisor Roger Wohlner. Started in 2009 as a way to share his knowledge and experiences as a financial advisor, the blog’s increased its readership every year since inception.

If you’re looking for really good information about financial planning Wohlner’s site is a great place to start.
