Which Decade Do You Believe?
For the past 10 years, most US investors have been star managers without really trying. In our country, investor portfolios are typically US large-cap dominant, so while they are up this decade (and specifically this year with the S&P), they didn’t fare well the first decade of this century.
I recommend spending a few minutes with this piece from Dimensional. They took a look back at the stock market over the past 20 years. While the 2000s and 2010s have differed starkly in performance, collectively they have reinforced investing lessons on patience and discipline – the real stars! Read their synopsis at the link below.
Take the Long View®: Education, Entrepreneurship & Experience
Hill Investment Group’s investment philosophy is based on the fundamental belief that, over the long view, global capitalism will succeed. HIG also loves continuing education – for our clients, our future clients, and ourselves. We’ve also got a demonstrated commitment to giving back.
When the Saint Louis Fashion Incubator launched in late 2016, we found another natural place to combine all three of these core beliefs. Through this non-profit incubator initiative, HIG has partnered with others to make a significant financial and mentoring commitment to six talented young designers who have come to St. Louis from across the U.S. Their two-year fellowships here are preparing them for full commercial debuts upon graduation.
Relationships are important too, which is how HIG came to lead a perhaps surprising charge in fashion and design. It came about in part when our Houston team introduced us to the husband/wife fashion aficionados, Sid and Ann Mashburn. We’re excited to co-host the Mashburns when they visit St. Louis in mid-October to share their decades of fashion world experience. From “brick and mortar” stores to an online, Skype-based business offering made-to-measure clothing, Sid and Ann have been there, done that, and will be sharing their leadership experience with our incubator designers … and a few others while they’re here.
Just as we’re proud of our entrepreneurial and philanthropic involvement here at HIG, we enjoy inspiring other business owners and friends to share their time, talent, and treasures to spread their own unique vision and values. Cheers to the Mashburns for joining us!
