Leland Hevner is the President of the National Association of Online Investors (NAOI) an organization he founded in 1997 to empower individuals to become confident and effective investors via education and the use of online resources. Thousands of people have read his books, taken his online courses and/or attended his college classes. In 2009 when markets crashed and industry-standard portfolios crashed with it, he realized that more than education was needed to empower investors; also needed was innovation. At that point he formed the NAOI Research Division to develop next-generation investing methods and investment types. In 2016 the NAOI released Dynamic Investment Theory (DIT), the first viable alternative to Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) since the 1950’s, along with NAOI Dynamic Investments, a unique “market-sensitive” investment type. The financial media engages Leland as a thought-leader in how the world of investing must evolve to meet the needs of both buyers and sellers.
