The Classroom

We believe strongly that education can improve long-term investment success.

The investment world can be confusing and intimidating. We all should have received a course in school about investing to help us understand it better. Most of us never did.

So we created our own “continuing education course” for investors that explores:

  • the fundamentals of investing (offers advice on “how-to” and “how-not-to”)
  • the investment landscape (provides context for investment decisions)
  • the behavioral aspects of investing (the goal is control and confidence)

The information provided is:

  • clear and concise—anyone can understand it
  • objective—the goal is to educate, not sell
  • in both written and video form—people learn in different ways

We hope you find The Classroom useful and informative. If you do, please come back and visit us again. We add new lessons on a regular basis.

The idea that asset management is a mindless endeavor devoid of skill, art or judgement is a harmful one. Even cheap, automated strategies have varied outcomes. The humans behind the machines still matter.
