Red Pine Investment Counsel, Inc. was founded in 2011 by Don Andersen and Mike Andersen. Our two principals have over 65 years of combined experience as investors and advisers.

We seek to build lifetime relationships by helping investors learn best practices and empowering them to become wise decision-makers and happy goal-achievers.

To us, best practices combine the teachings of Ben Graham (value investing pioneer), Phil Fisher (growth investing pioneer) and their renowned student, Warren Buffett.

History says markets are driven by emotions in the short run and economics in the long run. 

Badge with excellence

Our ‘best practice’ strategy is to use the emotions of the markets to invest for the long-term in high-quality, growth-oriented assets when their market price is below their intrinsic value.

Our firm is a Registered Investment Adviser (RIA).  RIA’s are held to fiduciary standards and are required to act in our clients’ best interests at all times.  Our RIA registration does not imply a certain level of skill or training.
