Our investment advisory services are designed to help individual investors preserve and grow their hard-earned assets to help support a lifetime of financial security. Serving as each client’s financial advocate, we provide a thorough and objective evaluation of recommendations and possible funding methods using the following approach:
- A. We research the capital markets to understand the drivers of investment returns and volatility.
- B. We constantly review new investment products and solutions.
- C. We are committed to an uncommon level of due diligence.
A. We don’t rely on someone else’s opinion to drive our investment recommendations. We perform independent research, as well as review papers and articles from a wide variety of professional and academic journals to find information that confirms and/or contradicts our investment beliefs and furthers our understanding of the capital markets. Because the markets change rapidly, this research is fundamental to our process.
B. New investment products and solutions are introduced every day, yet many advisors continue to make the same recommendations year after year. Because we understand that “new” does not necessarily mean “better,” we carefully identify and evaluate new solutions for suitability and applicability to our clients’ specific needs. When superior products and solutions do come into play, we work with our clients to determine when and how to leverage new offerings to support their established financial goals.

C. We believe that financial success is defined differently for every investor. We take the time to understand each client’s specific situation, investment experiences, and goals to offer highly customized and effective investment advice. We strive to educate our clients using open, straightforward communication, and we make ourselves available for ongoing discussion to build strong client relationships based on trust and understanding.
