Investment Philosophy

I will never pressure you into buying anything. 

You can be confident I will only recommend actions and investments that are in your best interest. 

I am an “evidence-based” advisor.

That means I focus on what can be controlled:

  • Keeping fees and costs low
  • Deferring or eliminating taxes
  • Globally diversifying your portfolio
  • Tilting your portfolio towards factors that correlate with higher expected returns
  • An appropriate asset allocation (the division of your portfolio between stocks, bonds, and cash), based on your ability, willingness, and need to take risk.

I will always explain the pros and cons of investment alternatives and what an investment can or cannot do. 

Of course, any plan will be influenced by your investment tolerance and ability to stay the course. I believe a reasonable plan, well executed, is far superior to a great plan, poorly executed.
