“There are a few moments in one’s lifetime when the geopolitical and economic backdrop truly changes. This year is one of them. The combined shocks of the highly contagious, deadly coronavirus, global economic shutdowns and social unrest are upending the old-world order and introducing new dynamics yet to be fully realized,” says Mack in a statement. “That’s why we’re launching ‘Pandemic Pivot’ this season to continue sharing the wisdom of ‘Financial Thought Leaders’ and ‘Great Investors’ to help people navigate these dramatic changes and build financial security to last a lifetime.”

WealthTrack’s 17th season will also explore critical personal finance topics, including protecting portfolios in volatile markets, rethinking retirement strategies and maximizing Medicare and Social Security benefits. Dedicated to helping viewers build lifelong financial security, the series will continue to provide trustworthy, understandable advice from the best minds in the world of business, investing and personal finance. Returning exclusive guests include founder and chief economist Ed Hyman of Evercore ISI, Treasury bond expert Robert Kessler of Kessler Investment Advisors, and award-winning Social Security expert Mary Beth Franklin.
