Do You Know The Answers?

If not, you should plan to attend our Investor Jeopardy Class!  Here are the questions:

  • Why am I under-performing the S&P?
  • Why am I under-performing the “benchmarks?”
  • Why am I in International Stocks?
  • Why don’t I just buy low-cost retail index funds?
  • Why do I need an adviser?

If you cannot answer the above questions using facts and data, then we’ll see you in class.  Why are these questions important?  It’s questions like these that if they go unanswered, our emotions begin to fill in the blanks.  When emotions start driving our investment decisions, investors tend to make imprudent choices that usually end up hurting them in the long run.

We have 2 class times to choose from…

Tuesday, June 2 @ 2:00 pm

or

Tuesday, June 2 @ 6:30 pm

To attend one of these classes, please refer to the CONTACT section of our website to reserve your seat.

Where’s The Growth?

Where’s The Growth?  Lot’s of folks are still talking about the U.S. stock market and economy.  Last year was a pretty good year for the U.S. large stocks.  What’s missing from these conversations?  

Check out this quick video for the answers.  Enjoy!

The Crash Is Never The Problem!

That’s right!  The crash is never the problem.  So what is?  Check out the video and you’ll find out.

We have the truth on how to deal with this market craziness we’ve been seeing lately.

Do you know what a two or three year worst case scenario is for your mix of assets?  If not, shouldn’t you?  Long-term investing is not a catchy slogan when the markets seem to be good.  Long-term investing in our world is life-long.  You can truly invest life-long if you really understand your worst case scenario for your investments.

You are invited to attend one of our upcoming classes over the weeks ahead so you can invest with confidence even in these volatile times.
