PRACTICE ECONOMICS FOR DOCTORS (PED)®
A Practice Management Approach
Complex issues such as shrinking profitability (increased operational costs coupled with decreased operational revenue), inadequate or no wealth management strategy, ineffective retirement plans, and exposure to litigation not only threaten the survival of your practice, but can dampen the gratification that your business of helping others can afford. The Practice Economics for Doctors (PED)® program, by the Wiley Financial Group, provides the tools to address these looming concerns. PED® embraces the concept that a successful practice should allow the private practitioner the ability to effectively and successfully accumulatewealth, retire comfortably and protect his/her assets. PED® is comprised of four separate components designed to achieve these financial goals: Wealth Accumulation, Retirement Planning, Risk Management, and Asset Protection.
