Welcome to Investment Centers of America located at Deerwood Bank
Investment Centers of America is a full-service brokerage firm with offices located in Deerwood and Brainerd, Minnesota.
With over 15 years of experience advising investors, these are the tenets that guide the practice:
*It's all about each client's unique circumstances and objectives.
*Managing financial uncertainty supersedes all other objectives.
*The right thing to do is often not popular or easy.
*Expense: The "miracle of compounding" applies to expense as much as it applies to investment returns.
*Diversification: Things often are not as they appear. A well-allocated portfolio is not necessarily well diversified.
The more enlightened post-2008 world of investing rejects the 1950s era investing model that had dominated investment thought. “Naïve” asset allocation does not work well during times of economic stress. Investment value projections that assume an average growth rate ignore the reality of the distribution of investment returns. Traditional portfolio metrics make incorrect assumptions.
Technologically superior methods offer real hope for improvements in the way investors manage their portfolios. Though the new methods impose complexity, computer modeling enables practical application. These new methods require us to think differently about investment returns and the risk they impose.
