Our Educational Mission Print
Our objective is to cover a multitude of theoretical and practical subjects on self investing. For a better understanding of the scope of our site, see Information- List of 44 topics on this home page.

Explain how the independent investor can react given the level of concentration of the Canadian financial system, and encourage regulatory reforms.

Why so much information?

  • No one said self investing was easy.
  • To help you change your ways towards investment selecting and expense management, especially to stay the course in the face of an avalanche of advertising by the financial system.

We want to learn with you. We both appreciate and welcome your comments on every aspect of our site – to build on its strengths and to correct its weaknesses.

Separately managed accounts are created by a computer program that says that these are the 50 stocks someone with X number of dollars should own, and that’s what goes into the portfolio. When the computer changes the portfolio, it is changed across the board for all accounts. Worse, I suspect SMA’s are programmed by “B-team” managers. A firm is going to put its senior managers in charge of billion-dollar portfolios, not half-million dollar portfolios. Harold Evensky
