Get Advanced Portfolio Construction
The core of any financial plan is the investment portfolio. We gather unbiased research from top-ranked independent sources and put leading candidates for portfolio inclusion through a series of detailed screening processes, including fiduciary screening. Then we apply both tactical and strategic allocation methods. Our final step is to blend the suggested portfolio with your lifestyle and defined goals. Once implemented, we continue to monitor your accounts and make adjustments as required by market shifts and your life changes.

In these comprehensive but easily understood books, Stew explains that regardless of how carefully you plan your future, it is a certainty that it won't unfold exactly as you expected. That is why he advocates planning not only for what you hope to attain but also for what you don't anticipate.

The key is to find a livable balance between enjoying the moment and saving for the future. It can be challenging but Stew offers a step-by-step process for both living today and protecting tomorrow.
