I offer portfolio consulting for Do-It-Yourself investors and if you are looking for a review of your investment portfolio held with other firms or advisors. I offer three broad services that can be tailored to you:

“Jump Start” For Investment Letter Subscribers

I write investment letters through my publishing company. Because you are different than any other investor, and the letters offer only broad research ideas, some tailoring of those services might be appropriate for you. If you would like some help getting started, then Jump Start is for you. It includes:

  • This is a 3-4 month program for getting started as a Do-It-Yourself investor using my investment letters.
  • Access to an award winning, interactive, financial planning software that will allow us to collaborate.
  • An initial discussion of your long-term financial planning goals and current investment concerns.
  • An extensive portfolio risk review to identify excess risk in your investments and asset allocation.
  • A long-term investment plan that is adaptable to changing life circumstances and considers your retirement plans at work, i.e. 401(k).
  • Initial buy and sell recommendations, along with limit orders for your first quarter as a subscriber.
  • Ability to contract for ongoing quarterly meetings and an “as needed” appointments for market fluctuations or change in your circumstances.
  • $800 initial and $200/hour ongoing purchased in advance in $800 increments.

Portfolio Review & Investment Analysis

This service is essentially similar to the “Jump Start” program, but is designed to be a “second opinion” of investment accounts held at other firms. The core difference is that the focus is on analyzing risks in your existing investment portfolio, not developing an investment plan.

  • This is a 2 or 3 appointment service for analyzing the risk in your current investment portfolio.
  • Access to an award winning, interactive, financial planning software that will allow us to collaborate.
  • An initial discussion of your long-term financial planning goals and current investment concerns.
  • An extensive portfolio risk review to identify excess risk in your investments and asset allocation.
  • Detailed analysis of up to 12 core investment holdings in your portfolio.
  • $800 initial and $200/hour ongoing purchased in advance in $800 increments.
