Inflation and Your Portfolio The Cycle of Investing Social Security: By the Numbers

Ed Cole is an investment professional with over 25 years experience. He specializes in helping high net worth individuals with retirement planning.

Ed graduated in 1981 from Brigham Young University wih a degree in financial planning. He began his career immediately after graduation with Allied Insurance in Des Moines, Iowa. At that time, Allied Insurance was starting a new division promoting financial planning. During that time, he earned his CFP® certification, series 7 securities registration and investment advisor registrations.

In 1984, Ed started his own financial planning business in Des Moines, Iowa. After earning an endorsement from the Iowa Medical Association, He traveled the state of Iowa giving seminars to Physicians. It was during that time he became familiar, first hand, with the struggles physicians were having as small business owners, investors, and trying to plan for the future. In 1986, Ed and his wife Sherry and their two small children moved back to Provo, Utah. As he started to grow his business in Utah, he continued to meet with his Iowa clients quarterly, which he continues to do to this day. He currently has clients in Utah, Iowa, Arizona, Idaho, Montana, and California.

Ed believes we live in a new investment environment where market volatility is increasing and with greater frequency. As a result, investors are seeking more advanced risk management strategies to address this volatility and restore confidence in their investment plan. By analyzing your portfolio's relationship with volatility, he feels we can gain a better understanding of how it is likely to respond when volatility spikes. With this important data, he seeks to construct portfolios that deliver a smoother, more consistent return profile.
