You may have have heard, or likely will soon hear about, a relatively newer investment approach that has gained popularity over the past 10 years called fundamental indexing. Fundamental index vehicles have plenty of aliases such as: strategic beta, smart beta or factor investing. At the core, fundamental indexing is about creating a better index (pool of securities) by excluding certain companies and including others based upon a defined financial filter. It is less about picking the best company and more about picking a pool of securities that has what is believed to be more desirable long-term financial characteristics. The growth of this segment has been impressive to say the least. Morningstar reported growth of the “Strategic Beta” category to $745 billion as of February 2017.
“Every deal is unique and has its own detours and surprises, but selling your business has discrete steps that all business owners should know.”
This how Kevin Cudney, M&A attorney with Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schrek, opened last week’s “Selling Your Business” program held with Janiczek Wealth Management.
Passive indexing has long been popular among the smaller investors. But wealthy investors often pursue more active strategies, either with active managers or on their own. After all, they didn’t accumulate their wealth by sitting back and doing what everyone else does, right?
But the evidence against active management is strong, with the most managers failing to beat the index over time. So why do wealthy investors tend to shun a passive approach to managing their money?
For the fourth year in a row Janiczek Wealth Management has been named to Barron’s Top Financial Advisor list*, now for 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2014!
Mr. Janiczek was named one of America’s top financial advisors* in the March 4th, 2017 Barron’s issue. The prestigious list of top investment advisors was also published in The Wall Street Journal by Dow Jones & Company, a division of News Corp on March 9, 2017.
The rankings are based on data provided by over 4,000 of the nation’s most productive advisors. Barron’s draws from all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia. It includes a cross-section of private-wealth advisors—from independents who own and operate their own practices to advisors from the large Wall Street firms. Barron’s states, “This special report lists the top advisors in each state, with the number of ranking spots determined by each state’s population and wealth.
The rankings are based on assets under management, revenues generated by advisors for their firms, and the quality of the advisors’ practices. In evaluating advisors, we examine regulatory records, internal company documents, and 100-plus points of data provided by the advisors themselves.”

The financial markets are now closed for the year and with all of the theatrics the verdict is in. Those investors with the following five characteristics prevail over those who fall victim to a host of mistakes and unsuccessful approaches:
- Investing from a superior position of financial strength.
- Being well prepared for a range of possible outcomes.
- Having an investment philosophy and approach you can confidently stick with and win with through thick and thin.
- Tuning out the noise, taming the emotion and focusing on what you can control.
- Investing for long-term success and, in the process, avoiding anxiety-toxic predictions, moves, comparisons, concentrations and traps.
There are few things that we Americans get worked up about as much as presidential elections.
One candidate, some of us feel, would be a disaster for the country, while the other would lead it in the right direction. That seems to hold true every four-year cycle, but this year emotions are pitched especially high. Spurring us along is the financial news media, which breathlessly advises us about how to invest for a Clinton presidency, or a Trump presidency.
