American Investment Services, Inc. (AIS) is an SEC Registered Investment Adviser founded in 1978.
AIS is a fee-only discretionary asset manager located in Western Massachusetts, with a geographically diverse clientele. We primarily use investment products provided by Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA), Vanguard, and other low-cost providers.
We provide independent Asset Management Services to individuals, estates, trusts, retirement plans and charitable organizations.
AIS is wholly-owned by American Institute for Economic Research (AIER), a non-profit scientific and educational organization. Our investment approach is consistent with AIER’s scientific research findings, as described in its popular book How to Invest Wisely. We are governed by a Board of Directors appointed by AIER.
We publish the Investment Guide, a monthly newsletter. We are also the developers of a rigorously researched, disciplined approach to large-cap value stock selection which we call the “High Yield Dow” strategy and one of a select group of advisers specifically qualified to provide clients with access to fund products from Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA).
