    Excellent interview. It is great to see that there are people out there like Robert. After reading the interview I spent some time reading through Robert's website which was fantastic. The kind of service that Robert offers is the kind that would have been helpful to me to get me started on my investing path. Passive indexing should be taught in middle and high school.

    After a divorce 4 years ago, I acquired an IRA account with Schwab. I have the funds in a managed account that has a fee of 1.0%. I read your book, but haven't felt confident enough to make changes to my account. This article caught my eye – as something that might be right for me – and I too am a teacher. What do you think?

    That was a great interview, and it's nice to see that there are advisors out there who believe in a passive strategy. Does he work with Canadian clients as well. If not, have you found someone in Canada yet who will do similar work?


  4. Great interview. We need more investment advisors like Robert!

    • Thanks Mark,

      Interestingly, we have fee based advisors in Canada who invest passively for their clients, but they charge so much more than their American counterparts do. Any thoughts as to why?

      And if you know of anyone who charges 1% or less, please let me know!



  5. Awesome interview, guys. 🙂 You guys are both doing a lot of great things to help out the investing community out there.
