African-American Minority-owned financial services

Each year, investors pay billions of dollars to financial advisors and fund companies who claim they can achieve superior returns. This claim is unjustified. Very few advisors have the skills needed to beat the markets, and those few people cannot be identified in advance. Every academic study on the subject points to one clear message; in aggregate, the more you pay to invest, the lower your returns will be.

Our clients do not participate in the massive wealth transfer from Main Street to Wall Street. They earn their fair share of market returns by holding a select basket of low-cost index funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that match market performance. There is no question this is the best method; the question is, how do you do it?

Johnson’s Global Advisors provides low-cost portfolio management., we will design, implement and maintain a low-cost, passively managed portfolio that is appropriate for your needs. Our services are economical, efficient and practical.

There are two roads a person can follow when managing an investment portfolio; active management and passive management. Active management embraces the idea that a person can achieve superior returns over market indexes. In contrast, passive management is all about achieving, as close as possible, the returns of the financial markets. Passive investors understand that market returns are good returns.

The human desire to beat the market is a powerful force. Investors will spend a considerable amount of time and money searching for superior returns. That search is promoted by a multi-billion dollar Wall Street marketing campaign that employs an army of talented salespeople.

Despite all the time and money spent trying to identify ways to beat the markets, the net result falls far below expectations. Very few mutual funds and investment advisors are able to achieve superior performance with enough consistency to make it worth the effort. After paying mutual fund fees, advisor fees, broker commissions and other related investment costs, an investor’s return typically falls below the market by the amount they spent to beat it.

Spending time and money trying to beat the market with active management is counterproductive. At Johnson’s Global Advisors, we specialize in low cost passive investing. It is economical, efficient and honest.

Transparency is a critical value of the JGA organization. We take an open door, open book, no surprises approach to serving client needs. In choosing or recommending service providers, we rely on painstaking due diligence to identify highly experienced experts who deliver essential skills, innovative techniques and real value.

Investing involves risk, including loss of principal. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, international investments may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability in other nations. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors as well as increased volatility and lower trading volume. Investments in smaller companies typically exhibit higher volatility.
