Mistry’s Musings – 30 Years is Cause to Celebrate!!!

As we head into the holiday season and wrap up the year that is/was 2021, I would like to recognize a couple of major milestones: the 40th year anniversary of Dimensional Funds Advisors plus Portfolio Advisors' 30th anniversary of partnering with Dimensional Fund Advisors. (Executive Chairman & Founder David Booth wrote a great article reflecting upon his 40 year journey. You may click here to read his article.)

It was 1991 when the founder of Portfolio Advisors, Gary Leffler, was looking for a new way to do business and better serve clients.  Specifically, he was interested in changing to a business model that was not transactional or commission based.  This, he reasoned, would help to foster client centric decisions.  Gary was also looking for a mutual fund family that embraced key philosophical beliefs that allowed for broad portfolio diversification and minimized costs.

Things I Wish I Knew Before Shopping for a Home

By: Andrew James (AJ) Flores, CFP®

As a financial planner, there were certain aspects of the home buying process I felt I was well-equipped to tackle.  I was on top of my credit standing, I was familiar with the characteristics of a loan, and I was comfortable with planning out the household budget.  Still, as with any novel endeavor, there was plenty my significant other and I could only learn along the way.  Here are seven things I wish we had known before becoming first-time home buyers.
