Event description


Join us for our June webcast event and learn about a practical, easy to use asset allocation tool. Best of all, it's a free web-based tool!!


Tyler, the author of, will discuss evidence-based methods to invest like a pro using sophisticated but low-key index investing strategies.

Topics will include how to evaluate the claims of portfolio experts pitching competing ideas, how to account for uncertainty in your financial planning, and how to create an asset allocation that effectively manages risk.

Whether you’re a beginner looking for guidance or an expert interested in unique portfolio modeling tools, there should be useful information for all types of investors in this presentation!


  • How to use historical data to make good investing decisions while avoiding common pitfalls

  • Simple but counterintuitive asset allocation concepts to improve risk-adjusted returns

  • Actionable steps to build a low-maintenance portfolio to support your important life goals

Tyler, Author,

Tyler is a mechanical engineer with a deep personal interest in investing, a passion for good data and some nifty Excel skills he’s picked up over the years.

Tyler also has a creative product design pedigree, a sensitivity for when statistics become unapproachable and a knack for explaining complex ideas in understandable terms.

Mix that all together and you get, a free online resource created to communicate modern investing concepts via intuitive visuals and real-world examples that look beyond the raw numbers.

We're trying something new...

Our June speaker, Tyler, will be presenting live from Texas via webcast. Not to worry -- you'll still have full capability to interact with Tyler.

  • Tyler will be live and presenting in real-time

  • We'll have copies of Tyler's slides available for download and Tyler will control the flow of his presentation from Texas

  • You'll be able to interact with Tyler, ask questions, etc. via the webcast chat window

So why are we doing this??

  • Sadly, it's just a fact of life that many firms/speakers don't have the time or budget to fly cross-country to present to a (relatively) small crowd.

  • Also, the chapter has a (very) limited speaker travel budget --- i.e., the revenue we receive from your tickets!! --- to bring speakers in.

  • End result: Having remote-speaker capability will allow the chapter to offer more nationally known firms and speakers.

So come join Tyler as we usher in a new era for the chapter!!
