U.S. Money Reserve CEO Angela “Angie” Koch was recognized for her financial expertise in the January 2017 issue of Austin Woman Magazine in a special interview piece, “Security Blanket.”
As CEO, Koch has positioned U.S. Money Reserve as a precious metals leader. She has real world experience in the areas of business planning, strategy, mergers, acquisitions, and operations, making her the ideal candidate for Austin Woman‘s “Savvy Women” section. Here, the magazine features expert advice on specific financial, real estate, legal, or other business matters from female industry leaders. As the premier magazine for women in Austin, Texas, each magazine issue offers women a place to learn about and discuss what enriches their lives and empowers them to be successful.
In “Security Blanket,” Koch shares insight into how economic turmoil on an international and national scale could rattle your personal finances, plus what you can do to better protect your financial future in light of it.
Specifically, Koch speaks to how an adequate amount of savings (typically six to eight months of expenses) is one of the best ways to prepare for life’s uncertainties, along with a diversified portfolio that could include gold and silver, a sufficient amount of insurance coverage, and a solid financial plan for retirement. She also provides hands-on advice for those who are self-employed or have an otherwise unpredictable income, as well as those who may be dealing with a burdensome amount of debt.
For women in particular, Koch offers the following wisdom: “Too many women rely on other people when it comes to finances. Don’t assume you’ll always have that safety net. Take charge of your finances and educate yourself. The more you know, the less likely you are to fall prey to the whims of the economy and the better prepared you’ll be for the future.”
