Building a Portfolio (Week 1)

Hey everyone,

We’re excited to announce our June topic! This month we’re going to be stepping back from looking at specific industries and stocks, and instead go deep into the best ways to build a portfolio, including an overview of concepts like asset allocation and risk management. We at Dynalect have already laid out a general set of investing principles that we adhere to, but over the next month we’re going to make some more specific goals and strategies for ourselves in preparation for the turn of the quarter at the end of this month, when we’ll be restructuring our company portfolio and making it more transparent, and for the anticipated economic tides over the coming year.

We’re excited to have you along for the ride with us! In lieu of formal reports made up in PDFs this month, we’re going to be putting out a lot of other resources, including beefing up the static pages on our site and building surveys and information designed to give more personal recommendations to you about how to use your money best.

You can already check out some of our work on our new page about asset types. Look for more site updates over the coming week!
