Philosophy

Art's philosophy is that your principal should be safe from stock market losses though you should get a decent return on your funds that keep up or outpace inflation and that you should employ available legal strategies to pay the least amount of taxes while you are alive and pass on your estate to your loved ones in the most tax advantaged way when you pass on.
