We are a Boutique Firm
We put our clients above all else. What is important to you is important to us. We provide tailored services to each and every client because we are a smaller firm dedicated to building lasting relationships with all of our clients. When it comes to your investments, we access your account on regular basis and are in tune with your money and financial picture. We often communicate with our clients on a weekly basis to explain what is happening in the stock market and how it is affecting their portfolio. This constant communication allows our clients to learn why certain strategies and portfolio management practices are better suited to their investment objectives.
How are we different from other finance professionals?
Fiduciary ~ To serve the client interests above everything else. We are held to a higher standard called “Fiduciary”, which means we put client interests ahead of our own. It is the highest legal and ethical standard under US law, meaning we are legally bound to look out for your best interests.
Other investment professionals and brokers are held to a lessor standard called “suitability”, which means as long as the professional has a product they can sell you, they do not need to look for the lowest cost or best investment product for you. Professionals held to a suitability standard aren’t looking out for your best interest, they are looking out for their bottom line.
We follow a fee based model, meaning we never accept commission and we always look for the strategy or investment that is in our clients best interest. The fee-only model aligns our interests with client interests because when you make portfolio profits, our flat fee increases proportionally. Your portfolio performance and financial success is our top priority and you can rest assured we are always looking out for you.
