Shelburne Vermont Financial Advisors

Frank Koster

The evolution of the ETF market is enabling advisors such as One Day In July to drive fees dramatically lower while still providing full service, customized, investment advisory to our clients.

Don't try to time the markets and chase returns. Active management and higher fees lead to a drag on performance and tax inefficiency.

The worst investing decisions are usually driven by fear or greed. You can't control the market but the market can control you if you let it.

Institutional Investing

Frank, Keith and Josh bring more than 80 years of collective experience managing assets for institutional clients. Their clients have included Fortune 500 companies, central banks, state and local governments, non-profit corporations, endowments and foundations, and insurance companies.

They have led or been an integral part of teams that have managed over $100 billion in combined institutional assets. In addition to portfolio management, Frank, Keith and Josh have experience in institutional risk management, trading, portfolio analytics, client reporting, and compliance.

One Day in July seeks to build its environmentally focused portfolios with an emphasis on the same key investment criteria that we believe are critical to all portfolios. Among these are low cost, substantial diversification of risk across industries and geographies, a high degree of liquidity and transparency in the investment vehicles we use, and a competitive level of current income.

Nevertheless, because certain types of stocks are less compatible with an environmentally focused mandate, there will invariably be some differences among investment characteristics in these portfolios relative to the portfolios we manage that do not consider environmental factors (“baseline portfolios”). We believe that these differences are generally modest. However, they are still worth noting since they may periodically cause performance of an environmentally focused portfolio to diverge in either direction from the performance of a comparable baseline portfolio.

A critical part of being your financial advisor is that we are fiduciaries, which means that we represent only the interests of our clients. No one pays us other than our clients. We are 100% independent in our decision making, and we do not cross-sell other products. One Day In July is a fee-only, fiduciary financial advisory firm, and we do not earn commissions from product sales.

A fiduciary financial advisor is a person who holds a legal or ethical relationship of trust with their client, and we take this trust seriously. As your fiduciaries, we are required to act in your best interest. We act on your behalf at all times, with no exceptions.
