The 2008 Financial Crisis destroyed billions of wealth for everyday investors.

Ron Delegge II had spent over a decade as a registered investment advisor, but got out of the business in 2007, right before the 2008 Financial Crisis hit and destroyed billions of wealth for average investors.

Wall Street and its flock of herd mentality advisors had failed their clients.

And investors without advisors had no idea they were at risk.

When everyone around Ron was asking “what just happened?” he was asking himself:

“How do I help the average investor stop this from ever happening to them again?”

a conflict-free, independent tool

Uncover Your Strengths & Weaknesses

Ron began working on an entire grading system that systematically identifies every hidden risk, excessive cost, and serious danger threatening your wealth and the long-term performance of your portfolio… 

…while showing you how to safeguard your portfolio from severe ups and downs in the market.

This system couldn’t simply be a “second opinion” on your portfolio.

It had to be a thorough, trustworthy, firsthand analysis of everything wrong (and right) with your investments that you can’t get from ANYONE else. 

Plus, your final analysis had to be presented concisely, without too much technical jargon or complicated explanations so that ANY investor, regardless of their experience or expertise, could understand the problems harming their portfolio and be empowered to fix them immediately.

Now, Ron has finally created a portfolio analysis unlike any other.


A complete analysis of your investment portfolio

Minimize costs, taxes, and mistakes

The Portfolio Report Card (PRC) is an independent portfolio “audit” that sets a critical eye on every aspect of your investment architecture to ensure it’s built on a stable foundation to weather any storm and appreciate in value deep into retirement.


Once we’re done deep diving into your portfolio’s “infrastructure,” you’ll know WHY it may be underperforming, unsafe, unbalanced, and unable to help you reach your goals.

And you’ll finally be able to repair your portfolio before any further damage to your wealth is done. 

100% Impartial & honest

The Portfolio Report Card (PRC) is the first and ONLY portfolio grading service anywhere designed to give you a conflict-free analysis of your investments. 

We’re not owned or affiliated with any brokers, dealers, or investment firms.

We’re not trying to sell you financial products you don’t need. 

And we don’t have any conflicts of interest. 

We’re only interested in exposing the flaws in your portfolio’s architecture.

We would say we’re “unbiased,” but that’s not entirely true… 

EVERYONE is biased one way or another…

100% Accountable

After we grade your portfolio using our proprietary grading engine, you’ll know right away if you’re being ripped off or given boneheaded advice by a financial advisor or someone else. 

Of course, you’ll also discover if you’re being guided in the right direction. 

Because only one thing matters when it comes to investing: 


The PRC verifies whether your advisor’s suggestions will get you the results you deserve or not. 

By holding your advisor’s feet to the fire through the Portfolio Report Card, you get your maximum money’s worth from their financial services, which, in turn, helps them become better advisors and helps you get the best returns on your investments.


Of course, if you manage your own portfolio instead of using an advisor, you don’t have to second-guess how well you’re doing – the PRC will tell you what you’ve gotten right and wrong, and point the way toward smarter investment decisions.

Optimizing Performance

The Portfolio Report Card is unlike any other portfolio review service out there. 

It’s not based merely on one person’s opinion as most other reviews are. 

Ron Delegge II specially-built this “portfolio grading engine” that leverages over 75 years of proven investing research and knowledge from some of the world’s greatest investors, including John Templeton, Amos Tversky, John C. Bogle, William F. Sharpe, and many others.

No other financial analyst or investment advisor has access to this proprietary software. 

The grading engine has built-in benchmarks that adjust to your portfolio’s holdings, allowing the program to precisely analyze your portfolio for the best results. 

After reviewing your investments, your portfolio is given a grade of A, B, C, D, or F.

Don’t worry, each grade will be explained in plain English without too much technical jargon or complication. 

You’ll know what your grade means for you and your portfolio, why you received the grade you did, and most importantly, how to take our advice and put it into action the moment after receiving your Portfolio Report Card.

mission Critical financial categories


Every investment carries costs that are easy to overlook or disregard - we’ll show you the hidden costs leeching thousands of dollars of your wealth and how to slash them into the smallest expenses possible.


Don't get blindsided with unrecoverable losses because you didn't understand the full risks of your investments - we’ll show you how risky your investments are and give you the chance to change course before you're in too deep.


Did you know you have the legal right to keep more of your money? We'll show you how you're paying way more than your "fair share" to Uncle Sam and how to lighten your tax burden.


Holding fewer investments may mean much larger losses - we’ll help you uncover ways you can preserve your capital and generate higher returns with the right kind (and amount) of diversified investments your portfolio is missing.


Disorganized portfolios create confusion and cause big mistakes - we'll show you how to declutter your investments and help you stick to a sound investment strategy.


The wrong investing “psychology” can trigger major missteps that cause a domino effect of poor returns and declining performance - we'll detect the attitudes and behaviors endangering your returns and hindering the achievement of your financial goals.


Standard benchmarks like the S&P 500 fail to give you an accurate picture of your portfolio’s actual progress - we analyze all of your investments and carefully craft a personalized benchmark that matches your unique portfolio to accurately verify your long-term results.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Portfolio Report Card is not investment advice, a financial plan, or an offer to buy/sell securities. Moreover, we are not owned or affiliated with any broker/dealers, money managers, or registered investment advisors.


We are strictly focused on diagnosing your portfolio's health, thereby providing you with a clear picture of what's needed to improve your investment results and future grade.

The Portfolio Report Card uses proprietary software specially-designed by Ron Delegge II and a team of data scientists to analyze your investments using the combined research of some of the greatest investors who have ever lived. The results from our grading engine are examined by a team of human analysts before they're delivered to you.

We grade taxable brokerage accounts, traditional IRA, Roth IRA, SEP IRA, Simple IRA, 401(k), 403(b), 457(b), profit sharing, trust accounts, UGMAs and variable annuities.


We only grade investments from U.S.-based investors.


We do not grade portfolios containing collectibles, futures brokerage accounts, cryptocurrency accounts or any assets that aren’t listed or traded on a public stock exchange.


We do not grade back-tested or theoretical portfolios, portfolios without a minimum one-year performance history, portfolios without documentation or portfolios submitted by a financial advisor or another third-party on behalf of their investment clients.

The strategies, principles, and proprietary grading system we use works the same on portfolios with $25,000 up to $10 billion.

Grade A is the best score and it indicates you have a perfect portfolio across all grading categories, while B indicates minor flaws. 


Grades C to F indicate major structural flaws with your investment portfolio’s overall design and architecture. Rest assured, the Portfolio Report Card will explain every aspect of your grade in explicit detail.

Your investment data is used for grading and educational purposes only. Your data is never leased, sold, or identifiably shared.
