It's our goal to clearly present the most useful info to help empower you. Let's modernize portfolio theory!
Based on YOUR assets and investing preferences,
our Portfolio Shepherd tool will suggest an ETF-based portfolio based on MPT. It'll allow you to easily track multiple sample portfolios & rebalance rules, acting as an 'investing calculator' utilizing the same math as Robo-Advisors.
We Don't Take Your Money
We don't take & manage your money (or any info you don't want to give) - so we don't charge based on how much money you have.
The math our Portfolio Shepherd tool uses is transparent, and based on the same principles of MPT that professionals and Robo-Advisors use. Just FYI, because knowledge is power.
Articles and content on this site are 100% free! There is soo much stuff out there you can crosscheck ours against, it's a commodity. We just think ours is better.
Become a Finance Expert
You don't need an advanced degree, to have taken financial accounting courses, or to have years of experience to invest. Remember:
The most important lessons are the simplest
You are worse off by the amount of any fees, a little action here can make you tens of thousands richer
- Even experts never finish learning - and none of them can guarantee performance
