WHAT I DO FOR CLIENTS
- First, I help my clients understand where they are and where they want to be with respect to their financial lives. I've found that even very successful people aren't always clear about this important topic.
- Second, based on what I learn, I help them create a plan to achieve their goals by removing the obstacles and taking advantage of the opportunities as much as possible.
- Third, with this clarity and plan in place, my clients often tell me they feel confident because they have addressed what many people never truly focus on.
- Finally, working with my clients, I structure an investment portfolio that will achieve their goals without taking unnecessary risk. While many advisors simply allocate a client's portfolio, I will actively manage their investments to take advantage of opportunities when appropriate and reduce risk when market conditions warrant.
INDEPENDENCE: As an independent investment advisor, I am not influenced by product sales or corporate ties. As a fiduciary, my responsibility is to serve in the best interest of our clients and only our clients.
COMPREHENSIVE: I customize our services to meet the needs of every client and help develop a sound financial strategy that covers all the financial bases, from planning to investing to estate conservation.
EXPERTISE: Less than 1% of all financial advisors hold a CFA charter. Chartered Financial Analysts (CFA) are highly prized by institutional money managers as investment analysts and strategists. Working with a CFA charter holder brings those same institutional skills to individuals and families.
DISCIPLINE: I believe in the fundamental principles of strong diversification, low-cost investing, and the idea that markets are best navigated with the avoidance of large losses. Managing risk is at the center of what I do for clients in order to preserve gains and minimize losses.
