Performance update on the Vegan Growth Portfolio

I should get around to doing this more often as we are in the minority when it comes to investment advisors willing to post portfolios and returns.  I’ve advocated for years that retail investors don’t have to settle for the returns offered by indexers and robo-advisory firms.  Robo’s are cheap but you won’t receive what we offer in terms of returns and bear market protection. The Vegan Growth Portfolio is a name we use to describe the concept of investing with Vegan perspective.  Its a diversified portfolio that usually has about 30 holdings when fully invested.   When our indicators tell us that when stock market risk in unacceptable due to the potential for recession we reduce our stock holding and focus on Treasury bonds or cash. offers a unique opportunity to create a mirror portfolio of our client holdings in the Vegan Growth Portfolio.   In other words, the same day we buy or sell a stock for our clients we also buy or sell it in the VGP.  The price may differ by a small amount but the Vegan Growth Portfolio shown on is close approximation to our client accounts. As you can see we are soon arriving to the important 5-year return milestone.  As of 2/24/2017 the compounded annualized rate of return is 17.3% which is net of all fees and expenses.  The gross (before fees) return is 18.8% per annum. We respectfully ask when a potential client’s first question revolves around fee’s is which would you prefer:  Make 4%-6% net at a indexer or robo-advisor like Betterment or our returns which charge more?... read more

Vasi was a male Akbash that we adopted in 2007 from Pyr Rescue in Black Forest, Colorado. He was an abused dog; yet he thrived from day one on our ranch until he passed away in 2013. Akbashes are Turkish working dogs, and he did work. Regardless of how cold and forbidding a high mountain Colorado ranch can be in the Winter he never voluntarily spent a night indoors. He was a natural born protector and quickly became a beloved part of our ranch community. Vasi means “great” in Turkish (a fitting name). We now have four rescues, Luka, Tony, Kit and Alexei—and we would like to thank all of those that work tirelessly to rescue and rehabilitate mans’ best friend.
