We are proud of our performance history. In 2000, David William Davies founded Aspen financial management and began managing discretionary assets with a fundamental belief in capitalism and free capital markets. We start with the simple notion that supply and demand are the sole determinants of securities pricing. In addition, we believe capital markets are relatively efficient discounters of all widely known information. Thus, to add value through active management, one must identify information not widely known or interpret widely known information differently and correctly from other market participants. Throughout our history, we have continuously developed ways to look at capital markets differently. Our research has led us to develop practical applications of behavioral finance in our portfolio management process may sound surprising, but not all money managers take such a disciplined approach to measuring or advertising performance. That’s why we urge investors to remember past performance is not indicative of future results and should only be one of many considerations when choosing a money manager. You should also weigh the quality of service and advice and if the business is structured to put your needs first. In addition, we have dedicated significant resources to the emerging field of behavioral finance to better understand not just the tools of finance, but also how investors use these tools.
