Tom Ruggie has been invited to appear on national programs including CNBC’s “On The Money” and “Power Lunch”, PBS’ “Nightly Business Report”, Fox Business News, and CNN Money, and has been quoted in important financial newspapers and magazines including HFM Global, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Forbes, and Barron’s.

Recently, he was interviewed by HFM Global on what COVID-19 disruptions mean for investors’ operations and investments, and what strategies they’re eyeing.

In May 2021, he published an article on that uses his own considerable sports memorabilia collection and situation as the basis for considering what happens to a collection when a collector’s family and heirs don’t share his or her passion. In addressing that concern, he notes, “With more than 200 million collectors of varying types worldwide, it’s not surprising many of my high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth clients are acquiring all kinds of collectibles such as artwork, fine wine and spirits, jewelry, coins, vintage and classic cars, and arms and armaments as investments.”

He goes on to discuss how his own penchant for collecting has informed the way he interacts with, and coaches  like-minded clients, and focuses on the importance of having a well-thought-out plan that can provide crucial guidance to your family or heirs if collecting intersects with your worst day ever.
