Dexter P. Lyons is a Christian Money Manager seeking to honor God in his profession as a Portfolio Manager of a No-Load (BRI) Mutual Fund (www.LIONX.net).
I believe God has given me a passion and a purpose for managing money. My obedience and love for Jesus drive me to honor Him by striving to be a good steward of all relationships and money He has entrusted me. I would classify myself as a tactical, active risk manager seeking to manage assets on a risk-adjusted basis to achieve long-term capital appreciation.
I am disciplined and focused on the bottom line. I have learned the hard way that I cannot control the “return,” but I can attempt to manage the “risk” I take while investing. I do not subscribe to the buy-n-hold philosophy because I believe there is too much potential risk in the market to stick my head in the sand and say what most people say: “I am in it for the long run.” I am now over 59, and my goal is to make my money work for me instead of me working for it. I do not need to swing for the fences and potentially strike out or, worse, lose the game. I try to focus on getting base hits and scoring when the opportunity presents itself. In other words, I am trying to limit losses by managing risk and attempting to identify and profit from market trends.
The God of heaven and earth is my Father and I am a Son.
Jesus is my Savior and the Holy Spirit is my Helper.
We are all under the New Covenant of Grace and there is nothing we can do or not do to make God love us any more or less.
I try really hard to Rest daily in His Grace & Peace and Love my neighbor the way Jesus Loves Me!
I pray that you would accept the Love of My Father because I Believe You are a Son/Daughter that is totally forgiven and unconditionally Loved Forever! Amen!
