In 1991, investment advice for individuals primarily consisted of a sales-based relationship with a brokerage firm or a proprietary, beat-the-market type strategy from a money manager. That was when former tennis pro Dan Goldie saw a better way. He created a business that was aligned with clients and built portfolios based on investing science using passively managed, asset class mutual funds.
This idea was big.
Hundreds of firms now follow a similar approach, we currently manage $715 million for more than 300 clients around the country, and Dan has become a well-known and influential figure in the industry. He has also coauthored two books on investing, including the #1 New York Times bestseller, The Investment Answer, with Gordon Murray, now published in eight languages worldwide.

As a fully independent advisor, we are not restricted to any investment product or service, and have a legal fiduciary duty to our clients. We are educators and advisors, not salespeople, and proud that many of our clients tell us the best part of working with us is that they no longer worry about their money.
When Wall Street veteran Gordon Murray told his good friend and financial advisor, Dan Goldie, that he had only six months to live, Dan responded, “Do you want to write that book you’ve always wanted to do?”
The result is this eminently valuable primer, which can be read and understood in one sitting, and has timeless advice that benefits you, not Wall Street and the rest of the traditional financial services industry. The Investment Answer will change the way you think about investing.
Jargon-free and written for all investors—experienced, beginner, and everyone in between—The Investment Answer distills the process into just five decisions—five straightforward choices that can lead to safe and sound ways to manage your finances.
Goldie and Murray’s inspired collaboration is the one—and only—book you need to have a successful investment experience. Now published in multiple languages and used by hundreds of financial advisors around the globe to educate their clients.
