The MAIN & WALL Story
Founded in 1991 to align the emerging discipline of financial planning with investment management, align strategy with purpose, and put the needs, goals and interests of MAIN Street first, we were MAIN & WALL before MAIN & WALL was cool. Today, in the World of Finance as well as in the World of Politics, the debate, relationship and interplay between MAIN Street and WALL Street, finance and society, is now front page, center stage and all the rage.
Complexity Economics, Modular-Finance™, Fiduciary Capitalism, Design & Systems Thinking, The Mayo Model, Fintech, the Disintermediation Revolution and Orgel's Rules... (and we're just getting warmed up)...
"This Ain't Your Fathers Brokerage or Financial Planning Firm"
This is The Gateway to The Next Level
We don't have a 21st century financial system - What we do have is a system built with 19th century ideas, 20th century institutions, juiced with 21st century technology...

Welcome to MAIN & WALL Financial™
~ Design Thinking applied to The World of Finance ~
The purpose of this site is to introduce you to a new way of thinking about planning and investing in the 21st century. We call this approach - Modular-Finance~in~Motion™. The ideas we will present to you are decades in the making, but fundamental in nature. Together they form the foundation of our model and approach......Our mission is threefold: 1) Bring these ideas to the forefront 2) Establish the foundation and develop the conceptual framework and 3) Create the requisite model, cultural, and corporate architecture to put them in play to benefit individuals, investors and society. Modular-Finance~in~Motion is the product of Design Thinking, bringing together an interdisciplinary approach to provide innovative thinking and solutions to get you to the next level and survive and thrive in the ever changing highly competitive world of the 21st century.
The Game has changed: The needs are different, The game is faster, the stakes are higher - Some get it, some don't, and some will get trapped in the past.
The ideas we present are firmly in play in both academia and at the Institutional level. Unfortunately, when it comes to investment management, Financial Planning has always lagged ideas in academia and institutions by ten to twenty years. This time is no different. While the institutional World is working with complexity theory and non-linear systems, the financial planning industry is busy automating/selling Modern portfolio theory...an antiquated and discredited concept from the 1950's...lol...The World is Changing, The Third Wave is upon us and most of MAIN Street will likely get left behind with the antiquated thinking and mean variance optimization portfolios being touted today by old Wall today.
We call this the Darwinian solution to the Malthusian Equation....Some get it - some don't and some will get left behind..(i.e. - u Compete, U adapt, or U Die)
MAIN & WALL 2.1 is a play on both Modular-Finance and the Disintermediation Revolution.
The problem with financial services is the distribution problem.
