Problem Solvers

Meeting Investor Needs

The core problem facing the majority of investors is that financial experts fail to address two key needs, namely:

  • The need to be informed in plain-speak of the market forces that inform smart portfolio allocations; and
  • The need to provide retail investors with the same kind of sophisticated risk management and asset-diversification otherwise available to only the ultra-rich.

Rigged to Fail

Published on

Despite the record-breaking (and frankly dangerous) market highs of the post-2008 "receovery,“ 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.

The most ignored yet best kept secret to investing is this: Money is made by not losing it.
