About FairShares

FairShares is in the business of “Making a Difference” in the lives of people who save and invest.

FairShares Makes a Difference by protecting shareholders from structural risks found in investment products, which cause investors to overpay for the investments they make and then pay taxes on dividends and capital gains that someone else earned.

The risk FairShares patent-pending product solves is called “buying a dividend,” and it causes equities to trade Dirty. Equities trade Dirty when the dividends and capital gains the fund has generated are added to the price an investor pays for an investment fund. Buying a dividend is an unintended consequence of the “last holder of record” payment system that is used to distribute dividends, interest, and capital gains to shareholders and is disclosed as a risk in every investment fund prospectus. We have made FairShares available to any investment manager who is interested in Making a Difference in the lives of their shareholders by allowing their investors to keep more of what they earn and enjoy a better quality of life in retirement. FairShares revolutionizes the way we save and invest by creating fair, orderly and efficient markets.
