About our team
Collecting knowledge from all sources
Providing appropriate financial guidance requires a consolidation of knowledge and experience from very different fields. Because investment guidance is about more than handing out portfolio suggestions. It is about offering financial planning support and helping you understand how consumption and saving decisions as well as your risk preference and time horizon impact your future wealth. Therefore financial engineers, economists, IT developers, and capital market specialists joined forces to provide top notch guidance.
Why tailoring matters?
One size does not fit all

Illustrative expected returns from different strategies, when starting with $100,000
A commonly used long-run historic average performance of 6.5% for a well diversified portfolio is used as the market return. By deducting an expected average cost ratio of 1.6% for actively managed funds from the market return rate, the expected yearly return rate of 4.9% is obtained for mutual funds. Saving account returns are based on US Treasury yield curve.
We have evolved out of academic interest
Improving financial literacy and enabling the wider public to good and independent investment support has been a guiding principle in this project. So far we have been able to provide this service for free.
Enjoy it while it lasts!
