Who are We?

Public Sector Investor is a national service provider that specializes in education and financial planning solutions for public sector employees including those with 403(b)/457 accounts and pensions. We believe that education industry employees, military members, medical professionals, federal state and local government employees deserve to be informed and educated as it relates to their investment options. Our goal is very simple: to educate public sector employees for the purpose of providing a better financial outcome.

What are Better Outcomes?

Our goal is to provide a better outcome for our clients. To develop and manage a better outcome for your retirement by preserving capital and growing your investments.

Our investment philosophy focuses on three key objectives:

  • Increase Your Retirement Income
  • Lower Your Costs
  • Lower Your Investment Risk

In a highly volatile investment world, how can you build a plan for long-term success? What does it take to sift through thousands of investment opportunities and identify the relative handful that compliment your specific goals, time horizon, and risk tolerance? That’s why Public Sector Investor has a formal investment committee that meets weekly to select, monitor, and replace investments. The overall goal is to always be invested in the top subcategories and funds within those categories.

How comfortable are you with risk? Knowing your Risk Number is critical to understanding your risk tolerance.

To get a reward, investors must be willing to accept some risk. That is the fundamental trade-off of investing; risk is involved with almost any investment.

Watch a short video to learn how powerful knowing your Risk Number can be. It takes five minutes and will help you manage your risk throughout your life.
