“We know that replicating others’ ideas is an assured path to average returns. Instead, we ask a few questions to explore investments from a different perspective. Where is conventional wisdom ignoring the lessons of history? Where does it lead investors astray? Where is ‘best practice’ missing the mark? Can we create a better solution to serve our customers? As we answer these questions, we help our clients reach their goals. We succeed by helping others succeed.”
"Achieving our mission of transforming the global investment community for the benefit of investors requires courage, conviction, and commitment to consistently advocate for better investor outcomes and challenge conventional beliefs. We are our people, and our people strive to significantly and positively impact investors’ ability to build wealth over the long term through both insights and strategies. "
“We study capital markets to learn about reliable sources of investment returns. Publishing our research and educating investors are worthwhile activities on their own, but also invite others to challenge our ideas. Publicly debating our research findings is essential to deepening our knowledge. Ultimately, we apply our insights using 21st century technology to create simple, transparent, low cost investment strategies that deliver more of the available returns to end investors."
