Our goal is to provide concise, unbiased investment information to help people do the most with their money

We believe this can be achieved by informing people about (1) investment opportunities, (2) potential losses due to fees or active management and (3) the difference between investing and speculating.

We do not think years of education or lengthy books are required to achieve this.
