I have enjoyed multiple entrepreneurial and corporate business adventures which included both computer software and real estate. Developing computer systems and software has been an integral part of each of my businesses, beginning with my first. Instead of being at the mercy of the market, I decided to take control of my financial situation in the 1980’s and have been hooked on mastering it ever since. I continually research market history and study investor psychology to be more aware of the variables. I have actively invested in, or traded: stocks, bonds, currencies, energy, grains, private equity, and hedge funds.I began researching Tactical Asset Allocation in 2012 and quickly became hooked on the potential for lowering risk and improving returns. I consumed prodigious amounts of theoretical articles, invested in some managed TAA programs, and embarked on a personal program of TAA research and TAA model building. I spent nearly 10,000 hours studying Tactical Asset Allocation, building sophisticated models and back-testing through bull and bear markets before actively investing 30% of my family’s investment portfolio using the very Tactical Asset Allocation Strategies I developed. I developed a multi-factor Market Risk Model to identify Favorable, Balanced, and Hostile market conditions and Tactical Asset Allocation strategies to complement each market condition. I created TAAStrategies.com to help independent investors stay focused on business and reduce the time it takes to preserve capital. You won’t hear the typical hype or wild claims. I share detailed investment strategies in a timely manner based on thorough research and due diligence, so you don’t have to do it all yourself.
