What We Believe
- Our job is to help you determine the best way to achieve your financial goals. For some, it may be maximizing return. For others, it may be reducing risk.
- The most important investment decision you must make is the appropriate balance among the major categories (cash, bonds, stocks).
- Our investment strategies are based on unbiased long-term research, not Wall Street hype.
- Most investment vehicles and financial services are too expensive. It is the cost of trying to “beat the market” that causes most investors to fail to achieve market returns.
- Past performance is of no value in selecting superior performing mutual funds or money managers in the future.
- Low cost, no-load, “index” and “asset class” mutual funds are the most efficient way to harness market returns.
- Broad diversification among and within investment categories can increase returns as well as reduce risk.
- Our service adds value.
- Developing a plan and then adhering to a long-term disciplined strategy is the most reliable way to achieve long-term goals.
