Paul W Abele has been in the Wealth Management business for more than 35 Years. He believes strongly in The Efficient Market Theory, which states that all available information public, as well as an insider, is priced into the current market price. The chance of trying to beat the market's returns has proven over time to be elusive. That is why we want to own the whole market here and around the world. We do this by buying passively managed mutual funds that own the markets. We think that this is probably the best way to invest in stocks. We believe that investing in this manner, and charging what we believe to be low fees, is the best way to service our client's needs.
