“I met John Kosar and Asbury when he spoke at a NAAIM (National Association of Active Investment Managers) conference a few years ago. I can’t begin to tell you what a game changer his research has made in my models and my practice. If you want concise, technically driven, actionable research – spend the money and hire John and crew for your team like I did.”

“I want to thank you for keeping my investment to a minimum (during the current correction), saving me money. I would have been much higher percentage invested if it hadn’t been for your Correction Protection Model, so thanks. I know we investors get impatient, but now I know you will tell us when the time is right to get back into the market.”

We launched Asbury Research in January 2005 to provide data-driven independent investment research and actionable trading strategies to professional money managers. In 2015, we responded to many years of requests with a research product specifically designed for individual investors.
Asbury Research believes the market itself is the ultimate clearinghouse for all the collective knowledge and wisdom of its participants, people and businesses that have real money at stake, and thus is the most comprehensive, objective, and dynamic evaluator of all publicly known and unknown market factors that can affect your portfolio.
We analyze what the market “thinks” via a comprehensive arsenal of quantitative and technical metrics, and our own proprietary models, which are collectively more intuitive and forward-looking than the typical Wall Street approach. These metrics and models help us keep our clients one step ahead of the market’s next move.
We don’t make money by selling or promoting any particular investment offering or fund. We get paid solely on our ability to correctly analyze current market conditions, and then identifying the best investment strategies to take advantage of them.
We welcome the opportunity to help you become a more well-informed and successful investor.
