The IEI is on the cutting edge of research and market studies, developing computerized quantitative models that can assist you in eliminating your emotions and staying ahead of changing market conditions. We consider information disseminated by wall street and the media to be myths, half-truths and noise. We reject the investment profession’s common wisdom that passive, buy-and-hold and diversified strategies are the optimal approach. We believe that you can do better if you don’t follow the herd and have a solid framework for making your decisions.
We are dedicated to helping people build and protect their wealth.
Member experience and satisfaction are our #1 priorities.
Diversification is protection against ignorance. It makes little sense if you know what you are doing.- Warren Buffett -
We help you learn how to build and protect your wealth to realize your financial goals.
We meet and get to know you. You tell us, and we listen.
