Doug Fabian

Podcast Host / Economic Freedom Expert
For more than three decades, Doug Fabian has been helping investors find their next step to achieving their financial dreams and is committed to making a positive difference in their financial lives.

Doug’s personal journey in finance began when he went to work for his father’s investment publishing firm as a research analyst. The mission of their publication was to educate readers about no-load mutual funds. Doug moved from research and editorial, to marketing and ultimately to public speaking and radio - where he found his passion for educating others about money. This is where Doug’s positive attitude, and individualized approach toward each investor, combined with his contagious enthusiasm has helped and motivated scores of individuals to set a plan in place to reach out to achieve their unique financial goals.

Doug’s passion and skill as a public speaker landed him an opportunity to host a financial talk radio show in Los Angeles about money and finance. Doug spent 12 years on traditional radio and then moved his show to the internet and the then emerging podcast format in 2011.

During his tenure in radio, Doug also working with individuals and families as their wealth manager through his company Fabian Wealth Strategies. In 2017, Mercer Advisors asked Doug to join their firm and develop a new podcast called The Science of Economic Freedom. This opportunity to work with the talented professionals at Mercer Advisors and host this podcast is Doug’s dream job.
