We are fiduciaries. That means we put your interests ahead of our own. When we provide investment management, we accept no fees from the investments that we recommend. We use our decades of experience to create your investment portfolio.
We offer two options for managing your investments:
We start with your goals, your time frame, and perhaps most importantly, your risk tolerance (the degree of fluctuations in your investment returns that you are willing to withstand).
For our customized portfolios, we use a global core-satellite approach – a combination of passive (index style) for the core and active (stock/bond selection) investments for the satellite. We may also use the satellite to emphasize a theme. We view this as part of our diversification strategy.
We do not try to “beat the market” but rather invest to achieve your financial goals within the risk tolerance identified.
Your financial plan serves as a guide for portfolio design. As part of the plan, we review such issues as:
We believe that financial resources are built over time, not overnight.
We design the portfolio as a team. We believe this approach allows the whole to be greater than the sum of its parts.
You can view your investments 24/7 on your personalized, secure, website (portal).
