Money Mountaineering


Consider this book a trail guide—helping you survive and thrive financially in this complex and unpredictable world in which we live.

Given how the coronavirus pandemic has rocked the economy, readers need a framework to make good financial decisions about their future, as well as support to psychologically handle the changing landscape. That’s what Peter Neuwirth’s six foundational principles of Holistic Financial Wellness can provide.

Specifically, this book will help people understand and deal with the complexity of the system, the uncertainty of the future, the hidden agendas and misguided views of many advisors, and the built-in irrationality we have as humans that makes it so hard to survive—let alone thrive financially.

As you will soon see, Neuwirth’s advice on how to structure your financial world in order to withstand the inevitable systemic collapses that the global economy was destined to experience could have saved the average reader tens (if not hundreds of thousands) of dollars, had they adopted these suggestions before Covid-19 arrived in this country. More than that, by using the six foundational principles of Holistic Financial Wellness, the attentive reader will now be prepared psychologically to weather the aftermath of this crisis, and be ready to face the next one.

“Peter gives readers needed guidance for surviving a complex financial future. This book empowers readers to plan for the predictable, and to be prepared for the unpredictable—without losing sight of the trail.”—Mike Kaplan, CEO, Rael & Letson

Author: Peter Neuwirth currently holds a part-time position as Senior Consulting Actuary at CapAcuity, and spends most of his time writing essays and presenting on financial wellness. His recent writing centers around the principles of Holistic Financial Wellness and how they can be used to weather the economic crises we face as a society and as individuals. In his upcoming book, "Money Mountaineering", Peter explores the world of money and lends his perspective on its nature and the challenges we all face as we try to survive, even thrive, in this complex, uncertain, noisy and sometimes irrational wilderness.

Peter’s work is well known in actuarial circles and has been quoted in both the mainstream and industry press. He is a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries and a Fellow of the Conference of Consulting Actuaries and is a frequent speaker at professional conferences. Peter resides in Santa Rosa, California and can often be found on his porch talking to his neighbors and listening to recordings of his favorite Grateful Dead shows.
