“When working with academics, it is not uncommon that I am not the most educated person in the room. Many of our clients have PhDs and MBAs from top Ivy League schools and some are regarded as the foremost experts in their field. Still, no one can be an expert in every field and finance can often be complex and confusing. An intelligent person can read magazines and books on investing, watch the financial news and research investments, only to end up with lackluster performance, stress and lost time. A number of my clients are former self-directed investors, and today they are still directing their investments, only now they work with Scholar as a partner. This helps them reduce stress and free up their valuable time. By working with Scholar you are able to pursue your professions, hobbies and dreams.”
