About Our Company

At Retirement Investor, we don’t manage your retirement accounts; we empower you to manage your accounts yourself. Our low-cost, online membership website was created to show do-it-yourself investors how to easily and confidently invest and manage their own portfolios.

If you want to learn how to invest your 401(k) or 403(b) after you leave your job or invest your IRA, Roth IRA, SEP, SIMPLE or Solo-401(k) – we can show you how to do it yourself.

You don’t have to move your money, fill out paperwork, schedule an appointment or pay any advisor fees. Just join and start receiving guidance and easy-to-follow instructions on how to become a better, more confident do-it-yourself investor.

With 50+ years of collective experience, we created this easy-to-use website to show that anyone can manage his or her own retirement account like a pro and reduce their investment expenses. Simply follow our professionally managed model portfolios and replicate them on your own using low-cost exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

Members also receive our Monthly Market Review that keeps them informed as to when to make changes to their portfolio, along with Educational Videos on do-it-yourself investing.

Together, we hope to equip investors with the information, guidance and confidence they need to create their best retirement.
