About Olson Investments Advisors

We?ll show you how our principles, perspective, discipline, and dedication make us different.
We have expertise, experience, and sophisticated resources, and we use them to help our clients achieve their goals. We are solely guided by what serves our clients best, without conflicts of interest.
We practice Modern Portfolio Theory. Rather than trying to predict which way the market will move, we focus our efforts on designing a custom, efficient portfolio to meet each client?s specific needs for return, income, and reliability over the long-term. Our investment management is built on objective research, solid logic, hard work, and disciplined execution of our strategy.
We invest the bulk of our time and resources to determine the asset allocation for each client?s portfolio. We learn about our clients and we use an optimizer. Each portfolio includes a variety of asset classes combined in proportions that we expect will maximize return while minimizing volatility over the long-term.
We make a systematic search for mutual funds that have provided excellent performance ? measured by risk as well as return. Special agreements allow us to use loaded funds with the sales loads waived.
We closely monitor the investments and regularly review our clients? needs and priorities. We provide our clients with meaningful reports and ongoing service.
