About

Bringing order & clarity to your financial life.

WHO WE ARE

At King Harbor, we don’t make predictions or forecasts. Studies have shown that the forecasting records of strategists and analysts are dismal. They tend to be overly optimistic and prone to significant errors as the economy declines.

Using a Goals-Based Wealth Management approach we identify your financial goals, estimate their costs, and assemble a portfolio of investments most likely to achieve them.

Our portfolios are based on factors that reward investors who are disciplined and patient. Based on well-established academic research, these “tilt factors” increase returns over time. Additionally, our portfolios contain low-cost investment vehicles such as ETFs to boost portfolio returns. Where appropriate, we recommend alternative investments such as private equity, real estate and hedge fund strategies.
