Red Pine Investment Counsel Intro

Below are key insights about Red Pine and its two principals, Don Andersen and Mike Andersen.

  • We consider it a privilege to serve.  We find that most investors need help, both from a time aspect and skill aspect. Red Pine is a Registered Investment Adviser (RIA) with the State of Minnesota. Our mission is to help our clients be happy goal-achieving investors.
  • We are experienced investors and advisers - over 60 years combined, starting in 1968. We take pride in our capabilities but are always seeking to improve. We love what we do.
  • We are closely aligned with our clients.  They pay us an annual advisory fee that we believe to be fair. We receive no commissions or any other compensation. We invest alongside our clients.
  • We are best practice-driven.  We think the best long-term investing strategy combines the teachings of Ben Graham [value investing pioneer) and Phil Fisher [growth investing pioneer].
  • We have great role models.  Renowned investors such as Ben Graham, Phi Fisher, Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger, Philip Carret, John Templeton, John Neff, Peter Lynch, Jean-Marie Eveillard, Bob Rodriguez, Howard Marks and Seth Klarman have generously shared their wisdom.
  • We are passionate researchers.  We believe diligent research and continuous learning are key to achieving sustainable investor success.  We complement our research with the expertise of 11 investment management firms, who collectively have 456 years of experience, and also have over 350 investment professionals and $360 billion in assets under management.
  • Our goal is above-average returns over the long term, which we believe can best be achieved by investing in mutual funds and businesses that we consider to be exceptional.

Our invitation:  If you invest, let's connect and explore how we can help each other.

Sincerely, Don and Mike
