Advisory Services

The Liberty Portfolio Are you interested in having financial freedom? Are you new to investing? Are you experienced, but concerned about your investments? Are you looking for investment ideas designed to beat the market? Are you interested in learning new strategies to enhance returns? Are you interested in limiting risk? Are you confused by financial media outlets contradicting themselves? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then THE LIBERTY PORTFOLIO is for you. THE LIBERTY PORTFOLIO is a joint project: its editor will build a real-money portfolio right alongside you. With over 22 years of investing experience, he will guide you, educate you, and help you achieve financial freedom using strategies developed in the best of times…and the worst of times. Sure, other advisory services recommend trades designed to deliver outsized returns. Their dirty little secret, however, is that these trades also carry high degrees of risk. THE LIBERTY PORTFOLIO does the research for you, with the goal of finding market-beating returns with less risk than the benchmarks carry, and with substantially less risk than virtually any other advisory service. There is another compelling feature about THE LIBERTY PORTFOLIO: it is truly an “all-weather” strategy. It doesn’t matter if the market is up, neutral, or down. You’ll make very few changes to your core portfolio from one year to the next, and have the opportunity to engage in a few simple stock and option trades every month to enhance your returns.
