Financial Education

     We believe consumers and clients should be self educated about finance. We urge consumers to avoid reading glib, superficial general interest publications and instead read the rather dry scholarly publications. That way you will escape the gravitational tug of Wall Street's propaganda and instead learn how to access investments that have wise, sensible strategies.

In order to provide the best service to our clients we spend about 80-100 hours a month reading about finance. Many of these require expensive subscriptions. Here is a list of what we read:

Financial Times
Wall Street Journal
New York Times
Washington Post
The Tax Advisor

Journal of Accountancy
Journal of Financial Planning
CFA Digest
CFA Magazine
Hoisington Management Quarterly Newsletter
Morningstar Principia
Economist Magazine
Investment Advisor
Financial Advisor Magazine
Financial Planning Magazine
Dave Rosenberg's newsletter at GluskinSheff
Numerous finance professionals on Twitter

We also read numerous financial books.
