Planning Specialties

We provide private wealth management to clients who have a minimum of $1 million in investable assets. We focus on building wealth while preserving clients' capital. We believe that we can only best serve our clients if we first seek to fully understand where they are financially and what they require their resources to do for them going forward. We therefore recommend that we commence any relationship by initially preparing a comprehensive Financial Plan. This plan includes an investment strategy and covers such aspects as estate planning, retirement planning, insurance, long-term health care, employee benefits, small business services and other issues such as cash flow and liability planning. This Plan is invaluable as a road map to guide both advisor and client through future years while being regularly updated to reflect our client's changing circumstances. The detailed information gathering process also enables us to prepare a personalized investment strategy, in the form of an asset allocation proposal, documented in an Investment Policy Statement. We assist with the implementation, rebalance the portfolio and monitor investment performance. With regard to investments, we strongly believe that a portfolio, which optimizes the relationship between risk and reward, is best achieved using an effective asset allocation.
