FINRA has investor education materials such as BrokerCheck, which provides insight into firms and financial advisors.
Our investment philosophy is holistic and centered around a blended use of asset allocation, risk appropriate investment, tax awareness and long-term goal/estate planning. We believe that investing in the market and staying invested in the market is the only consistent path to growth, and staying invested in the market is a function of tolerance to market shifts and variations, to which every individual has unique reactions. As such, we feel that managing according to risk tolerance, tax sensitivity and long-term goal and estate inclinations leads to the highest probability of long term investment without sidelining investments.
We employ modern-portfolio theory and believe in the value of diversification, long-term investing, dividend re-investment and portfolio rebalancing. We measure our client risk tolerance on an ongoing basis and use it along with ongoing reviews of current needs and future goals to calibrate our client’s investment allocation.
We believe in controlling the things that we can, such as cost and tax. We strive to balance lowest possible cost with the value of diversification and rapid transactability. We strive to balance lowest possible cost with the value of diversification. Our firm also has broad expertise in taxation, thus we monitor and trade our clients’ accounts with client specific tax sensitivity and for tax advantage.
