The Index House is a Private Counsel portfolio management firm focused on modern investor practices including an indexing approach to investing.
Unique to the investment industry, the Index House recognizes how difficult it is to consistently and accurately predict which will be the best stocks, bonds, or mutual funds or which money manager will outperform or when to be in the market or out. Thus, the Index House takes a modern, non-predictive, indexing approach to building and managing client portfolios.
The Index House is the simple + modern alternative to the product oriented investment services of banks, brokerage firms and mutual fund financial planning firms.
