  • 25 Questions With Tom Vilord of Vilord Wealth Advisors

    1. How and why did you get started investing? What is your background?

    I got started in the industry in 2000. I wanted to become a financial adviser because I wanted to learn how to research stocks like the guys on Wall Street. I wanted to learn what made Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) so successful while most Americans failed to achieve success investing in the market. What did he know that the rest of us didn’t? After I passed my licensing exams, the company I was working for sent me to New York for three weeks of training. I thought this is when I was going to learn everything I needed to know to be a successful investor. Unfortunately, my first two weeks of training were nothing but sales training classes. The last week was training on all of the proprietary products. I was taught to be a salesperson. I learned absolutely nothing about how to invest money. And I was about to invest people's life savings. After a few years of not having a clue about what I was doing and having clients teach me stuff about the market, I started to self-teach myself. I bought every book I could read. I started taking personal one on one coaching courses, etc. I have been an adviser since 2000, but I have been an investor since 2005.

  • 18 Questions With John Huber of Saber Capital Management

    1. How and why did you get started investing? What is your background?

    I’ve always loved investing. My father was an engineer but was very active investing his savings in the stock market. By extension I became interested in stocks and investing relatively early on. But I came to the world of investment management unconventionally. I began my career in real estate, doing a variety of brokerage, investment and management activities in both residential and commercial real estate, and I established a few small partnerships with family members and friends to begin buying undervalued income-producing property. We bought residential properties as well as small multifamily properties.
