Who is Compound?


We’re investors. We’re writers. We’re readers. We’re thinkers.

But most importantly, we’re good listeners. Everyone has a unique story to tell, and our job as advisors is to understand that story and build a portfolio and a plan that will enhance it.

Our mission to help guide investors on the road to a wealthy and meaningful life. What that means is different for everyone, but the objective is the same: stay on the right path.

The principles we stand for define our culture:

  • Character is king.

Trust and respect are the foundation of any long-term relationship. We earn that by giving unbiased advice and doing what’s in your best interest, every step of the way.

  • Commitment to education.

We’re lifelong learners and we love to teach. Education is an edge, in investing and in life. We take the time to create thoughtful content that simplifies the complex, gives context to market movements, and helps mitigate harmful investor behavior.

  • Compounding is more than just an investing concept.

Small positive habits, exercised with discipline, can change your life for the better. We aim to share ideas that compound, building a community focused on personal improvement.
