There is always vigorous discussion in the financial world about the relative strength of one particular investment or another, but often the essential nature of the planning process is overlooked. Let's look at it this way: If you were invited to participate in the Home Run Derby and given a choice between the best bat available or the swing of a professional baseball player- which would you choose? The bats are the investments. The swing is the planning process.
One of the best ways to fight against periods of volatile or poor equity market performance is the strategic use of non-correlated asset classes. Our dedication to researching and providing access to world class alternative investments is one of the things that makes Equity Concepts a truly outstanding independent wealth management firm.
