Welcome to the Allocation For Life Investment Newsletter!

My goal is to provide individual investors with actionable investment strategies that were formed using common sense and have stood the test of time. My book can help guide you through the investment process and will show you that sticking to the basics does work.

AFL Newsletter subscribers not only receive a monthly newsletter to keep them on track, but they also receive the ability to own and follow my personal strategies in self-directed accounts at Folio Investing.  When I make a move, subscribers are alerted and they have the ability to make the same move in their self-directed accounts. Following professional strategies, on your own terms, does not have to cost you a fortune in fees.

My AFL Multi-Cap Growth, AFL Multi-Cap Value and AFL Contrarian Folio returns can be found on the right side of this page.

*** Due to market performance and a strict adherence to Jon's proprietary AFL rebalancing and re-weighting system, Jon's top five holdings can change on a regular basis.  In addition, Jon's returns shown for his top 5 holdings on any particular day may be greater than or less than the individual stocks actual performance since the day Jon added the holding to one of his models.  This again is due to Jon's strict adherence to his AFL rebalancing and re-weighing system.***
