Our Services

For Investors

Do you find it hard to keep track of what’s happening in the market? Does the never-ending stream of data leave you feeling overwhelmed? Use Grindstone to sharpen your investment research. We filter out the stuff that doesn’t matter and deliver to you the information that counts. With access to our breadth of insights, proprietary indicators, model portfolios, trade ideas, and more, you can spend less time watching the ticker tape and more time doing what you love.

For Advisors

Are you an advisor that’s looking for new ways to communicate with clients and prospects, but you don’t know where to begin? Grindstone can help. We license select content to investment professionals so they can spend less time worrying about commentary and more time building their business. Our publications are designed to be useful and informative to real decision-makers, yet simple enough to appeal to the casual market participant. Facts and data without opinions ensures the content you’ll distribute aligns with your investment strategy, no matter the landscape.

The Grindstone Approach

Grindstone Intelligence incorporates a data-driven, safety-first approach to investment research. We don’t subscribe to the buy and hold mentality – when the data changes, we change our minds. Passive investing is hard to beat in a bull market, of that there is no doubt. Too often, though, we’ve watched as market drawdowns caused investors to abandon passive strategies at the worst possible times. It’s easy to point at human behavior as the problem, but human behavior doesn’t change. The real problem is that passive investing isn’t compatible with behavioral flaws. And whether we like it or not, those flaws drive decisions.

That’s why our team of seasoned professionals works so hard to detect both opportunities and risks in the investment landscape. We look at the market through a macroeconomic lens, then utilize a top-down technical approach to identify the best trends among each asset class, sector, and industry. Our favorite trends are those supported by both investor sentiment and long-term fundamental tailwinds, but if the outlook changes or the investment landscape darkens, we have no problem shifting our focus. There’s always a bull market somewhere.
