Welcome to Waypoint's Evidence-Based Investment Insights.

Are you ready to become a better investor? Would you like to learn more about the most important principles driving wealth creation and preservation, without it hurting a bit?

Welcome to Evidence-Based Investment Insights:
12 Essential Ideas for Building Wise Wealth.

Each insight will take only a few minutes of your time. In exchange, you’ll learn how to invest with greater confidence—with evidence, not emotion, guiding your way. That’s because our insights are based on a dozen solid principles formed by 70+ years of peer-reviewed inquiry into how capital markets efficiently and effectively deliver enduring wealth to patient investors.

Don’t worry, unless you specifically ask us about it, we’ll skip the Greek symbols and multi-factor modeling. Instead, we’ll translate each insight into its meaningful essence: the “What’s in it for me?” you need to know, so you can apply the science of investing into your own portfolio.

Being a better investor doesn’t mean you must have an advanced degree in financial economics, or that you have to be smarter, faster, or luckier than the rest of the market. It means:

  • Knowing and heeding the insights available from those who do have advanced degrees in financial economics
  • Structuring your portfolio so that you’re playing with rather than against the market and its expected returns
  • Avoiding your own most dangerous behaviors, ingrained through eons of evolution and tempting you to make the worst financial decisions at all the wrong times

Are you ready to become a better investor on these terms? Stay tuned for our next Evidence-Based Investment Insight: “You, the Market, and the Prices You Pay.”
