Four Years Ago…

Written by David Fabian, March 15th, 2017

Four years ago, we set out to build something special.  The founding of FMD Capital Management became not only a professional achievement, but also the start of a journey to find a better way to manage money.

This week marks the fourth anniversary of our firm’s origin.  We started this company with the commitment to work harder than other investment advisors.  To be advocates for our client’s best interests and to share our knowledge in real-time.  It’s with great pride that we continue that same bedrock promise to this day.

6 Things I Learned In 2016

Written by David Fabian, December 26th, 2016

Some would say (read: my wife) that I’m a creature of habit.  However, I think that having consistency with your investment routine creates a culture of success.  It allows you to continually act on what works and avoid straying from a predesigned plan of attack.

One of my habits is to write an annual review of the lessons I learned over the preceding twelve months.  The purpose is to impart both successes and missteps in a way that bolsters your own investment endeavors.  Many of these lessons are ones that I continue to re-learn or emphasize every single week.
