Our passion at Signals Matter is sharing knowledge and expertise with those outside of the Wall Street circles we know so well. This allows us to serve all investor types, not just the ultra-rich, with a truly-wealth-generating portfolio at an accessible price. Here are just a few reasons why our background, experiences, and online portfolio solutions may appeal to you:
Here's What We Do
We Diversify Our Clients
“Alternative investing” is a core strength at Signals Matter. We’re not about just stocks and bonds. Rather, we reach beyond traditional investing to currencies, commodities, unconstrained and actively-managed investment approaches, including simple inverse ETF solutions that can profit during periods of systemic stress when stocks typically fall.
We Protect Against Market Stress
Active portfolio management beats passive portfolio management hands down during periods of extreme market stress. While active and passive investment approaches each have a role to play, when the going gets tough, its active management that protects. We’ve spent decades protecting investors in stressful markets by diversifying away concentrated risk.
We Cater to Retail Investors
Alternative investing is typically reserved for the wealthy (accredited investors with over $1 million in liquid assets). No longer. We bring sophisticated investing to the retail space at an affordable price. There are no fancy hedge fund performance fees, capital lockups, or sky-high 2% annual fees charged by financial advisors. We assemble Portfolios Suggestions for you, so you can invest wisely.
We Make Diversified Investing Simple
Main Street has scant access to truly diversified portfolio solutions, that zig when markets zag, that protect on the downside, and that enable wealth to grow no matter what the market conditions. We do all the heavy lifting by adding, removing, and rebalancing Portfolio Suggestions as market opportunities shift. Ten minutes a day and your off and running.

Rigged to Fail - Now Published
Despite the record-breaking (and frankly dangerous) market highs of the post-2008 "recovery," current securities markets are poised for an equally record-breaking and wealth destroying fall.
Rigged to Fail explains all of this with math, not opinions, and offers elegant approaches to protect informed investors from losing fortunes in the pending market storm. With over 50 combined years working in and among Wall Street’s top global banks, family offices and alternative investment funds, Matt and Tom bring an insider’s perspective that is free of fluff but rich with straight-talk, not sales talk.
