Have I mentioned how much I love receiving Anil's "Matco Market Insights?" It's a very thoughtful 1-page email that breaks down investment and financial information in really simple terms. As Anil puts it,

I'm kind of a bottom-line guy. I know that people's time is very valuable. I try to take the most sophisticated ideas and boil them down to something simple, that [both] the unsophisticated investor and the sophisticated investor can understand easily.

You can see an example here: Matco Market Insights: A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL.

In this episode, we talk about a few new initiatives that Matco Financial has figured out to get more exposure and deliver value to their customers.

Why we love him?

  • He's a Money Manager and former Internet entrepreneur with not 1 but 3 different ventures.
  • He's been writing client investment communications for 20 years.
  • He's an avid runner and cyclist and has been involved with the Cancervive foundation for over 10 years. In one of his fundraisers, he cycled from Calgary, Alberta to Austin, Texas.
