“Over the years, I have seen how emotional reactions to the market can derail the best laid investment plans, so I work with clients to buy quality investments in a well-diversified portfolio with a long term buy and hold philosophy. Moreover, the Bible has a lot to say about money and how we should use it from the parable Jesus told of the rich fool, to 1 Timothy 6:17-19 and the wisdom of Solomon. Therefore, if my clients are looking for what God has to say about investing both here on earth and for eternity then I’m happy to share that with them as well.”

Investing involves risk including loss of principal. No strategy, including diversification, assures success or protects against loss. There is no guarantee that a diversified portfolio will enhance overall returns or outperform a non-diversified portfolio. Diversification does not protect against market risk.
