As an active portfolio manager for STA Wealth Management, Lance's primary role is to question the mainstream mantra. Rather than just regurgitating the news of the day, Lance looks at the “raw data” to bring a unique and “un-spun” perspective to the conversation. Lance's deep understanding of fundamental, technical and economic perspectives, combined with his unique focus, helps listeners understand how it impacts their family, their money and their life. "When a portfolio is fully invested, studying the reasons why the market will continue to rise is a bit pointless. As investors, we need to temper our bullish perspective with contradictory arguments to reduce 'confirmation bias.' If our job as investors is to 'buy low and sell high' we need analysis that helps us to identify those points." After having been in the investing world for more than 25 years from private banking and investment management to private and venture capital; Lance has pretty much "been there and done that" at one point or another. His common sense approach, clear explanations and “real world” experience has appealed to audiences for over a decade.
