Why Invest With Ivory Johnson

The capital markets evolve so fast that what might have been a good investment strategy five years ago doesn't work anymore. You need someone to help you stay on the cutting edge. My investment philosophy is based on a concept called asset allocation, which attempts to reduce the risk by diversifying funds amongst different investments, taking fundamental and technical analysis into account.

Moreover, the behavior of government officials has significant repercussions in the financial markets such that a flexible game plan, one that incorporates a long/short hedged approach, can serve to mitigate volatility. We may live in a complicated world, but that’s my job – to make sure your portfolio is suitable for the environment of today.
