How We Work
The goal of our practice is to provide solutions that are client-specific. We provide a comprehensive set of solutions, possibly in conjunction with other professional partners, such as attorneys, CPAs and EAs, and other licensed specialists as needed.
- We follow a fiduciary standard, meaning that we always act in the best interest of our clients. We not only believe in doing this, we are LEGALLY REQUIRED to do this, as a representative of a Registered Investment Advisor. A Suitability Standard, as followed by broker dealers and insurance companies, is not enough. We take our fiduciary duty to our clients very seriously and apply it to all areas of our practice.
- We are independent, which means we are not ‘captive’ to an employer telling us what to recommend. We have no quotas nor required products to sell and we follow Best Practices as we, our clients and our consultants identify what is best for the client’s individual goals and needs.
- Identifying and managing risk in its various forms is the foundation for attaining financial goals. These include better long-term investment performance, lower taxes, asset protection, having guaranteed lifetime income, and attaining freedom and peace of mind.
- We value open and honest communication as an ongoing process that gives us a better and growing understanding of what you want to achieve.
- We use empirical validation to guide what we propose, including historical research, quantitative validation, multiple analytical methods, and multiple software analytical tools.
