Our Process

How We Work

Our first priority is helping you take care of their clients and their families. We want to learn more about our client's personal situation, identify their dreams and goals, and understand their tolerance for risk. Long-term relationships that encourage open and honest communication have been the cornerstone of our practice.

We feel we over-service our clients in comparison to other investment advisory practices. We offer a variety of services to our clients, and do not charge any additional fees beyond our asset management fees for the provision of those services. Our background, certifications, and ongoing experience enable us to assist with consultation on: 

  • Investment Management
  • Retirement Planning
  • Estate and Gift Tax Planning
  • Trust Planning
  • Corporate and Individual Business Planning
  • Personal Finance (at all levels of wealth)

Our investment management strategy is one of our differentiators, in our minds. A few of the key aspects of our investment management approach include: 

  1. diversified portfolio suited to each client's risk appetite
  2. Tax consciousness in the management of clients' portfolios
  3. Active management of each client's portfolio (i.e. alertness to appropriate timing of contributions, routine rebalancing, frequent implementation of investment philosophy changes)
  4. Use of lower-cost mutual funds and ETFs across asset segments
  5. Open investment architecture (we are not limited to any particular investment family)
  6. Ongoing investment and market education and portfolio performance reporting provided to each of our clients
  7. If desired, separately managed equity accounts containing individual stocks

Overall, we value our high level of responsiveness, availability, and client service. We take pride in building strong relationships formed on trust between us and all of our clients.
