Learning the Best Strategy to Earn Superior Returns while Minimizing Risk
October 14, 2013
Hosted by Jordan Goodman
Trying to achieve acceptable returns without taking excessive risk has been a goal of investors as long as people have been investing. Many money managers try to achieve this with stock selection and market timing, in the hope that they can “beat the market” by identifying undervalued securities or market trends. In today’s show, we will hear from two companies who take a contrary approach. Peter Kranzler, from San Mateo Capital Management, creates portfolios for his clients using mutual funds which meet three criteria: broad diversification, low expenses, and passive management. This investment approach is based on the belief that trying to predict the short term movements of the markets is a fool’s errand, and investors are better served by harvesting the returns which the markets offer by being disciplined, broadly diversified, and keeping expenses low. We’ll also hear from Weston Wellington from Dimensional Fund Advisors, a mutual fund company based in Austin, Texas. Peter and Weston will explain what asset class funds are, how they are used, and the thinking behind them.
