Burton Malkiel, Charles Ellis and Jay Vivian Join Rebalance IRA Investment Advisory Board

Finance Luminaries Bring "Big League" Investment Management to Everyday Investors

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Three important and respected investment luminaries -- Burton Malkiel, Charles Ellis and Jay Vivian -- have joined Rebalance IRA's Investment Advisory Board. Rebalance IRA (www.rebalance-ira.com) manages Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) for clients who have accounts as low as $75,000. With an innovative business model that leverages advanced technology, Rebalance IRA provides low-cost, high quality one-on-one retirement advice using sophisticated investment management methods.

Malkiel, Ellis and Vivian are renowned for creating and implementing sophisticated investment methods used today by elite pensions and endowments. Their core ideas include diversifying across multiple types of assets globally and disciplined portfolio rebalancing. They also advocate techniques for keeping investment fees extremely low. These ideas are the basis for the unique service that Rebalance IRA is now bringing to all investors. The Investment Advisory Board develops, oversees, and sets policies for the portfolios offered to Rebalance IRA clients.

Mr. Malkiel is an emeritus Princeton University economics professor and former board member of Vanguard Group who wrote the classic investment book, "A Random Walk Down Wall Street." Mr. Ellis, also a former board member of Vanguard Group, was trustee of Yale University, where he chaired the investment committee, overseeing the famed Yale Endowment from 1999 to 2008 and has taught the investment management course at Harvard Business School. Mr. Vivian was formerly Managing Director of IBM's Retirement Funds, responsible for $135 billion in IBM investment funds for more than 400,000 employees worldwide.

"It is a privilege to be the advisory firm that provides access to Burt, Charley and Jay's 'common sense' judgment to millions of investors," said Mitch Tuchman, managing director of Rebalance IRA. "Because of our focus on IRAs, and our model of providing personalized service, we hope to have a positive impact on helping many Americans retire with more."

Passionate educators, these men have written extensively about how current financial services practices work against most investors. One critical flaw they have noted is that few investors are being advised by experts to own a low-cost and globally diversified portfolio that is periodically rebalanced. They joined the Rebalance IRA Investment Advisory Board to bring these investment methods to a larger group of Americans saving for retirement.

"There is nearly $5 trillion invested in IRAs," said Mr. Malkiel. "It is a stunning number, and an area where investors do not get enough help or support. If IRAs generated the returns of well-managed pensions, Americans would be earning an additional $125 billion a year. The fact that this doesn't happen is shameful. IRAs are the pensions for this generation. It's crucial that everyday investors get good, objective advice, since retirement now can easily last 20 years or more," he added.

"With ballooning deficits, the government can ill afford to help." said Mr. Ellis. "Add to that the low returns in IRAs, and we are starting to create a societal problem as baby-boomers double the ranks of the retired over the next two decades. If IRAs were well-managed and their fees were kept low, Americans would feel more secure about having enough money to retire."

Added Mr. Vivian: "Until the mid-1970s, most working Americans had a pension plan managed by a professional investment expert. Today, most people have to manage their own retirement accounts and they don't get proper guidance, so their returns suffer. It is the everyday investor who needs more help than ever, and that's why we have joined the Rebalance IRA Investment Advisory Board -- to help people retire with more," explained Mr. Vivian.

"The finance industry's high cost structure makes it difficult to offer personalized advice to the everyday retirement investor. We have assembled leading technology innovations to make Burt, Charley and Jay's methods widely available," said Scott Puritz, managing director, Rebalance IRA.

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. Learn about IoT, Big Data and deployments processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
