Joshua Kennon is the long-time Investing for Beginners Expert at About.com, where he has written since 2001, as well as the co-author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Investing, 3rd Edition. He is the co-founder and controlling shareholder of several businesses, including Kennon Green Enterprises and Mount Olympus Awards, a letterman jacket awards company. For the past eleven years, Mr. Kennon has been a private investor. However, during 2016, he and his husband, Aaron Green, are launching Kennon-Green & Co., a global asset management group that will specialize in designing, constructing, maintaining, and monitoring bespoke portfolios for affluent and high net worth individuals, families, and institutions with portfolios of at least $500,000 or more. This will allow clients to effectively invest alongside members of the Kennon Green family, using the same value-based philosophy, with an emphasis on low turnover and tax efficiency, they employ for their own wealth. To request information about the upcoming launch of the Firm, or to have your name added to the client waiting list, please visit Kennon-Green & Co. and follow the instructions. Those who are on the waiting list will be given early notification of the Firm's launch and granted priority access over those who are not.
