We understand; investing is complicated and often intimidating. But you don’t need to be a full-time money manager to succeed.
Asset Camp is built using top-tier professional data from industry leaders like MSCI and I/B/E/S—but we break through inscrutable data points with straightforward tools built to help individual investors like us make informed decisions.
How does it work?
We show you what’s driving stock index returns today and where they might be tomorrow, allowing you to position your portfolio like never before.
With Asset Camp, building and rebalancing your stock portfolio is done in five simple steps:
1. Understand the Past: Check the historical performance drivers of the indexes you track or plan to track using index funds and ETFs
2. Plan for the Future: Model and rank 10-year expected stock returns by adjusting key inputs
3. Check Your Work: Dig deeper into underlying stock index returns drivers with historical and forward-looking charts
4. Implement: Buy the corresponding ETFs and index funds for your portfolio
5. Be An Investor: Feel confident that you’ve made an educated decision you can explain
Three Drivers: The Foundation of Grounded Decision Making
Asset Camp works by breaking down three primary performance drivers across 46 stock indexes that represent 99% of the investable stock market.
What are these drivers?
Dividend Yield: The portion of corporate profits paid to common stock shareholders as dividends. This cash flow is what earns your index funds money on a regular basis.
Earnings Growth: Cash dividends grow as company profits grow. Dividends and earnings growth, combined, are the bulk of your long-term stock index fund returns.
Valuation: Investors are emotional and adjust what they are willing to pay for dividends and earnings growth. These valuation changes, as reflected in the price-to-earnings ratio, impact stock index fund returns as investors get more confident or more fearful.
These three drivers are the key to helping you understand why a stock index, or section of the stock market, performed the way it did, and what it might do in the future. (Currency fluctuations can also play a role, but Asset Camp also has that covered.)
Understanding these primary return drivers with Asset Camp opens a world of understanding for our portfolios.
But What Does Understanding Drivers Do for You and Your Portfolio?
Assist you in rebalancing your stock portfolio between U.S. and non-U.S., growth and value, large cap and small cap, or developed and emerging markets, because you know what the expected returns are
Help you stay the course with underperforming stock market segments or regions because you understand what drove performance
Earn higher returns by making opportunistic allocations to undervalued areas of the stock market

Will Asset Camp’s price ever increase?
As features are added to Asset Camp we expect the price of membership to increase in line with the value offered. Prices may also adjust in response to the costs of running Asset Camp, such as our subscription to investment data that we use to build our portfolio tools and reports. However, we maintain our commitment to providing professional level tools at price levels that are attainable for individual investors.
All accounts are subject to price increases when they happen and subscribers will be notified of any price changes well in advance of them occurring.
Why is Asset Camp not included with my Money for the Rest of Us Plus membership?
As its own service, Asset Camp is able to uniquely evolve to meet the needs of our users. It’s built on the same important principles as Money for the Rest of Us Plus, but with a clean slate that allows us to more powerfully leverage and organize the new tools we are building. But don’t worry, we’re still committed to making Plus Membership the best it can be too.
Separating Asset Camp also allows us to better manage the tens of thousands of dollars of development and data subscriptions that Asset Camp takes to run, as well as managing the differing domestic and international tax liabilities of Money for the Rest of Us Plus memberships and Asset Camp subscriptions.
