About Les H. Kern IAR CRFA LUTCF

We believe that while it is important to choose investments and financial strategies with a history of good rates of return, it is just as important to look at and investment's performance in a year with a market downturn. We teach clients that to get the best return, their portfolios cannot go backwards. We recommend investments with well-defined sell strategies that we believe will weather downturns efficiently. The bottom line: We try to avoid loss whenever possible.
