Dr. James B. Cloonan felt the need for an independent, nonprofit association that would help individuals control their own destinies. So in 1978, he launched the American Association of Individual Investors (AAII) with the mission of assisting individuals in becoming effective managers of their own assets through programs of education, information and research. The best investment advice for small investors is to do it yourself. Dr. Cloonan understood that you are going to do a better job of watching your own money than someone else. Source
This year’s AAII Investor Conference was in Las Vegas, Nevada. I’m always excited to share how the AI in Vantagepoint can empower traders and improve their success. So of course I jumped at the opportunity to participate in such a huge event with investors from around the world.
There was even a little time to have fun with my wife Mandi at the casino too!
