  • I am an experienced financial planner, the author of extensive personal finance publications on the web, and the developer of sophisticated lifetime financial planning software. At a creaky 60 years of age, I have gained expertise in economics, finance, investments, accounting, taxation, probability, statistics, and software.

  • In 2003, I began development of a highly automated and customizable lifetime financial planning application, VeriPlan , which I designed to serve as a decision support toolset for my advisory clients. In 2006, I released a standalone configuration of VeriPlan that do-it-yourself individuals can use themselves.

  • VeriPlan is the most automated, customizable, and sophisticated do-it-yourself lifetime financial planning software available directly to end users at a very reasonable price. To learn more about VeriPlan, click on the graphic at the upper left of this page.

  • I am also that author of several books. My most recent book is the "Investors Guide to Low Cost No Load Mutual Funds and ETFs ." This ebook will improve your understanding of investing by summarizing what the research literature indicates does and does not work when investing. It conveniently provides a directory of the lowest cost, diversified no load mutual funds and ETFs available to US investors for direct investing. Included are over 400 of the very lowest cost mutual funds and ETFs in 30 global, international, and US stock, bond, real estate, and money market fund asset categories.

  • This book delves into what is a mutual fund and an ETF, and it clarifies why only certain funds are worth owning. With it, year after year you can easily save money and time, while increasing diversification, lowering risks, and dramatically reducing investment costs. This ebook will help you to put your investing strategy on autopilot and allow you to get on with your real life.
