If you scroll through previous posts, you will I am a big fan of hedge fund manager, Kyle Bass. In fact, once I even called him a man crush. The reason is he is able to take the 30,000 foot view. He isn’t the typical pundit-clown you see on financial news extrapolating one data point to push his or her investment view. Of course, I may like him because my view coincides with his. Psychologists call this confirmation bias where we tend to identify with like minded folks. It can be dangerous if ignore other well reasoned, but contrary, points of view. However, as I continually read and challenge myself, this is the viewpoint I see as most plausible. Timing is impossible, but the overall trend will probably play out. If you believe that thirteen bankers behind closed doors can devise plans to magically negate any debt build up, then this view will be contrary to your thinking. This is certainly worth a few minutes of your time.
Kirk Kinder, CFP® is the Founder of Picket Fence Financial, a fee-only financial planning and investment management company dedicated to saving folks from Wall Street. Picket Fence Financial does this through a few different ways. One, our fee-only approach ensures our advice is tailored to our clients needs and not driven by commissions. Two, we minimize costs for clients by utilizing low cost Exchange Traded Funds (ETF) and aligning our internal operations to keep our company costs down (and passing this along to our clients). Third, we offer a la carte planning, which means our clients decide how they want to work with us. Rather than forcing clients into our model of planning, we offer hourly, retainer, or asset management options (or a combination thereof).
