In 1952 a Ph.D student by the name of Harry Markowitz turned the world of investing on its head by formulating a new idea about how to manage money.
Harry showed that it's possible to get better returns with less risk by focusing on getting the right mix of investments.
For saying how long this idea has been around, it's surprising how few people - amateurs and professionals alike - take any notice of it. Most people still think that the only ways to invest are either to
put all your cash in the bank, or to try to pick top performing shares in the same way you might try to pick the winner of the 2.30 at Newmarket.
But the reality is that neither of these methods are likely to get you the results you want. Leaving all your money in a deposit account means that it is almost guaranteed to lose value every year because of inflation, whilst gambling on the stock market is a fool's game.
There has to be a better way.
And there is. Harry's Way. It worked for him and it's working for our clients, today and every day. The results speak for themselves.
If you want to know more about how we use age old principles to get modern results, we'll be happy to explain.
Successful money management is a process. Not a guessing game.
