Our Philosophy

We believe that successful wealth management is about understanding and managing risk.  Based upon Modern Portfolio Theory, one effective way to control risk may be through calculated - not random - diversification.  We believe an investor’s most important decision is selecting an appropriate mix of assets to be held in a portfolio, rather than focusing on selecting the individual investments themselves.  This asset allocation decision should only be made after fully understanding each investor’s financial needs, goals, risk tolerance, and time horizon.

We believe a comprehensive Financial Plan is essential in determining an investor’s asset allocation strategy.  A well-designed Financial Plan - utilizing Monte Carlo simulations, Stress Tests, and Bad Market Timing – can assist an investor in determining the probability of success for their financial goals.  In an effort to control risk, a Financial Plan can help determine the most conservative asset allocation in order to reach an investor’s goals.  We believe many investors add unnecessary risk to their investment portfolios simply by not understanding the amount of risk & return it may take to reach their financial goals.

We follow a disciplined wealth management process to assist clients in creating and protecting their wealth. Instead of chasing past returns or speculating on hot markets, we focus on a long-term approach to investing with an emphasis on financial goals to help clients determine their financial needs and risk tolerance.  We reject investment strategies that seek gains through unsound or unproven methods, especially those that encourage a short-term, emotional view of investing. 

To implement our investment strategies, we seek out investment vehicles that are consistent in style, have reasonable costs, and are soundly operated.  Our investment strategies are customized to help clients minimize risk, reach their dreams, and still leave a legacy.

With today’s information overload, it’s hard to decipher between investment noise and sound investing.  New investments continually enter the marketplace in an effort to “sell” product.  We are committed to educating clients on the difference between investment noise and sound investing.  

Our investment philosophy incorporates the art of listening and the science of delivery.  This begins by understanding our clients' goals and objectives. Understanding yields little value if it is not complemented with precise implementation. Our knowledge of and experience in both bull and bear market environments help us provide clients the tools they need to make prudent investment decisions.

We recognize that time is one of my client's most precious assets.  Our goal is to simplify and manage a client's financial affairs so that they can focus on the more meaningful facets of their lives.  We are committed to managing our clients' wealth as carefully and skillfully as we would manage our own.  As investment advisory fiduciaries, we hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards and conduct business with integrity and professionalism.

Our clients' interests always come first.

There is no guarantee that a diversified portfolio will enhance overall returns or outperform a non-diversified portfolio. Diversification does not protect against market risk.

One of our primary goals is to develop a long-term, trusting relationship with you.
