Taylor Smith

Managing editor


If Taylor had to choose another career, he would be a financial advisor. In 10-plus years covering the advisory industry, he has written hundreds of thousands of words about the practice management issues advisors care about and the wealth management and personal finance topics their clients need to understand. He’s written blog posts, white papers and articles for newspapers, broker-dealers and individual RIAs, and he has worked directly with advisory firms to craft compelling content plans to engage their clients. Taylor also writes about DC plans, mutual funds, financial markets and small-business issues. He plays the mandolin, drives a stick shift and generally has a beard only during the long Maine winter.
