Frequently Asked Questions

How can I benefit by working with Ridgewood Investments to manage my money?

We formed the firm to deliver outstanding long-term investment performance for our clients/partners by employing a thoughtful and proven approach that tries to minimize risk. By working with Ridgewood Investments, you benefit in a number of ways. You get access to the work and resources that we put into identifying intelligent long-term investments. In addition, you free up your own time to focus on other activities that may interest you without giving up and usually augmenting the results that you can get from your investments. Moreover, you also get access to additional advice and input from one or more of our experienced and financially astute advisors who can provide you with objective advice or guidance on a variety of other related issues as well.

We believe that our approach and our personal commitment is rare in an age when many money managers chase relative performance, have a number of unproductive constraints, or are sidetracked by short-term fads. Based on our principles, a lot of work, and the discipline to avoid the temptation to follow the herd, we try to pursue and deliver outstanding investment results to our partners and ourselves. While we cannot guarantee performance, we can guarantee that we do eat our own home cooking.  Each of our partners and portfolio managers has made substantial investments in the same manner and side by side with the funds we manage for our other clients like you.

What kinds of clients/partners are you looking for?

We are looking for partners and clients that share our interest in long-term performance and a disciplined approach to investment success. Our ideal clients are intelligent, business-savvy, long-term oriented, and interested in intelligent wealth preservation and growth. Though we can’t promise results or a get-rich-quick strategy, we believe that this get-rich-slowly approach is the best way that we know to achieve significant long-term wealth creation, both on an absolute and risk adjusted basis.
