Sound Judgement In Conditions of Uncertainty

Ideology

Our focus is to help clients successfully navigate the staircase of life and achieve financial well-being. We realize focusing only on investment performance, while important, is not the answer to all of life’s decisions.

We guide our clients toward building an integrated lifetime financial solution that considers investments, retirement, tax saving strategies, cash flow, spending boundaries, budgets, debt levels, estate planning, asset purchases and sales. This process and our ongoing counsel encourages a sense of confidence and well-being, allowing our clients to successfully navigate life’s major transitional events, such as birth, college, marriage, divorce, aging and death.

Our unique background in the disciplines of investment management, finance, law and taxation allow us to help our clients delineate fact and fiction, rationality and irrationality, emotion and stability in the process of making consistently optimal financial decisions.

Our expertise is financial and investment advice filling the dual, but incongruent objectives, of sophisticated investors: realistic risk adjusted returns and capital preservation. Our goal is to achieve our client’s return objectives with the least amount of risk, that minimizes potential loss of capital in any market environment.

This disciplined decision-making process along with state-of-the-art analytic capabilities allows us to not only design optimal risk / return balanced investment portfolios, but provide our clients on-going valuable resources for addressing the multitude of decisions required in daily life.

Our goal is to keep clients for life by building relationships based on trust and respect. We become a significant long-term positive influence in our clients lives by delivering performance (doing what we say we will do), integrity, consistency, expertise and judgment necessary to help each client achieve serenity in financial well-being.

Capability

The challenge of making consistently effective financial decisions over your lifetime is like the overwhelming task of putting together a large jigsaw puzzle piece by piece. The big picture is lost in an overwhelming response of hopelessness. Where do you start? What are the guidelines for choosing one piece over the other? It is very easy to just give up because there is no direction, no clear vision of the ultimate result.

There is hope. The solution is a coordinated and systematic plan to guide one through the process.

This is what we do for our clients. We work with our clients to develop a foundation for systematically making effective financial decisions. We tell them to first focus on the puzzle box picture, then find the four corner pieces and then group all colors. Eventually, the cumulative result of effort and consistency is a beautiful mosaic on the dining room table.

By itemizing all their financial pieces our clients develop a clear and concise strategy that provides a systematic framework for making effective decisions because they have a coherent vision of the ultimate result, a lifetime of financial security and confidence.

To fully achieve our firm’s philosophy, we work closely with our clients and are always there for them to help with a broad range of unique needs and issues in addition to investment management and financial planning, including but not limited to:

  • Changing careers
  • Managing your 401k
  • Determining spending boundaries for retirees
  • Asset protection strategies to safeguard net worth
  • Financing the cost of rehabilitation and long-term care
  • Structuring tax efficient retirement income withdrawals
  • Helping widows and widowers plan the rest of their lives
  • Strategies to optimize retirement and Social Security benefits
  • Helping families deal with the loved one’s declining mental capacity
  • Clients with alternative or nontraditional lifestyles needing unique investment and estate planning solutions
  • Pet owners meeting estate planning for their pet’s well-being in the event of their owner’s death or incapacity
