"You cannot control the wind, but you can adjust the sails..."

While you cannot control the markets, you can have a plan.
Financial markets are inherently unpredictable and virtually impossible to forecast with meaningful regularity. This notion presents investors a series of peculiar dilemmas.
"How do I go about making investment decisions?"
"Does 'Buy & Hold' make sense for me?"
"Am I diversified enough?"
To complicate the matter, experts in the field of Behavioral Finance often observe that investors routinely make decisions based on emotions that can be in conflict with one's rational self interest.
At Peristyle, we believe in a disciplined approach that utilizes diversification beyond the traditional 60% stocks 40% bond portfolio.
Specifically, we favor a combination of studying market fundamentals while observing prevailing price trends and momentum. This can form the basis for a responsible strategy to navigate financial markets in concert with your financial plan.
