Emphasizing the Client Experience.

Successful investing requires our attention to a range of principles, while at the same time demanding we filtering out the day-to-day noise that can weaken resolve and derail the finest of plans. We seek to partner with clients in achieving their long-term goals by providing a source of definition for financial objectives, reason amidst the daily din and motivation against fiscal challenge
Sound advice also takes into account that investing can be a lived experience. The distress investors feel during those days, weeks or even months when the market is going down is real. That stress seems far more real than reasoned arguments about capital markets and long run returns.

When markets fall and emotions rise, investors can make poor decisions. Likewise, it can be tempting to chase returns or feel invincible when markets have big runs. One of our key roles as advisors is to make sure you keep a steady course when the bears or the bulls appear disproportionately large.
We strive to relieve you of the complexities of investment. In a way, investing can be quite simple; however issues like management costs, trading fees, taxes on gains, liquidity, ease of transfer to successors and issues surrounding required minimum distributions are often overlooked. Attending to apparently small details can make a significant difference in your financial outcome over the long run.

In addition to investment advice, you can count on timely, clear communication. We understand that accessibility, responsiveness and attentiveness to your concerns are key to your investment experience. 
We also know that educated investors are more likely to worry less so they can get on with what matters most in life.

Finally, we are fiduciaries. That means we are on your side. We put your interests first and are accountable as stewards of your wealth. Ultimately, we work with you, not just as advisor and investor but as partners collaborating for your financial success.

Seeking to earn your trust.

We seek to earn your trust every day. We understand that trust can be fostered through clear and candid review of your evolving financial circumstances and our plans to help you target your near- and long-term financial goals.

To that end, our Advisors will reach out regularly to discuss matters related to your financial future and to candidly assess the performance of the financial plan relative to your goals.

Further, our Investment Team meantime offers regular commentary to ensure clients are informed of material factors influencing investment positioning and performance. Please head over to our “Insights” page to review our recent observations on market activity and investment performance.

Each decision we make must prioritize your interests as a client. That is the nature of a fiduciary obligation. To support that objective, we have designed our organization to achieve the following goals:

Our investment options are not part of a brokerage firm with in-house products and services to sell; we are able to provide clients with objective guidance on which investments will best meet their needs.
Our compensation is based on a percentage of assets under management, therefore our success is directly linked to that of our clients.
As a Registered Investment Advisor, we are registered with the Securities Exchange Commission and are regulated by the Investment Advisors Act of 1940, we have a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of our clients. Of course, we’d observe those priorities even if we weren’t required to as we strongly believe that in doing so we only enhance our ability to succeed in helping you achieve your long-term financial goals. And that’s the only measure appropriate for us to judge our own achievements.
