About Us

ConservativeInvestors’ Services was founded by John Frankel and Mary Rygiel in the spring of 2005 on the very principles of simplicity, service and a human connection. Our core value is service, not sales, and we will always keep things easy to understand and fully transparent. The overarching principle of our practice is to provide our clients with a very high level of comfort. It is why we do what we do.

Throughout our website we talk about a way of investing we call "The Smart and Simple Way".

It is as smart and simple as 1, 2, 3….

  1. Set your level of risk: what percentage to keep in no-cost, risk free GICs? 25, 50, 100%?
  2. Diversify your non-guaranteed investments (mutual funds) geographically in low-cost, high quality indexed funds to avoid dependence on any single economy.
  3. Re-balance annually and ladder your GICs, keeping decisions to an absolute minimum.
