    We are a fee-only fiduciary working with high net worth families taking fiduciary oversight into all aspects of investing and planning including income tax and estate planning. While we do not complete income tax returns or write legal documents, over the last 19 years we have learned that investors want to go to one trusted professional to coordinate these efforts. That's why we have 3 CFP(S), an accountant, and tax attorney on staff. A key premise of our offering is to provide low "ulcer" investing and planning by avoiding losing money you can't make back.

I. Value Statement
  • View Value Statement
    A key part of our business is ensuring that our clients' complete financial lives are taken care of. Because we have an accountant and estate attorney in house, we can provide advice on tax optimization and legacy planning not possible by smaller firms. Another key aspect of our offering is that we have close, personal relationships with the best portfolio managers in the country, many of choose to avoid the big bank and insurance companies in order to better manage asset flow. Because the portfolio managers we choose have a first objective to not lose money that can't be made back, and because they have skin in the game (own money invested alongside clients) we strive for lower risk (and hopeful satisfactory returns) than market indexes. We spend a great deal of time identifying and coaching to expected risk. This means we can reduce the #1 problem investors face, which is giving about half of their potential returns to institutions (like big banks and insurance companies).

E. Comments
  • Because serious money deserves a higher level of involvement, investors who want to avoid losing money that they can't make back find working with a team of CFP(R) professionals, and accountant, and estate attorney to be advantageous to working with an insurance firm or large bank. The overwhelming majority of our clients come to us through client referral, professional (accountant and attorney) referral and by finding us on the internet. While we can't serve everyone, we welcome inquiries from qualified investors.
