Don’s background has been in large corporations and later in small businesses. He is retired now, but before that he was a business owner. He has successfully owned/bought/sold several small businesses. He started his Tango5 effort to begin teaching his adult children how to invest his way, the Tango way. It just developed from there, now he has several hundred others, including money managers around the country, and a few overseas using this process for investing. These Market Risk Management Models are based first on capital preservation and making money is second.
