About MFG

"There's alot of confusing noise dominating the financial media. On any given week, you can turn on the television and get panic one day and euphoria the next. Investors want to know what matters. That's why I leave the jargon at the door and concentrate on factors that have substantial impact on my clients' portfolios: allocation, investment selection, careful attention to expenses and ongoing monitoring. It comes down to an uncommon, objective approach to managing what matters."
