Our Core Values

 

Our core values shape the success of our practice:

Prudent Judgment

Creating and helping you manage intergenerational wealth is a profound responsibility that requires prudent judgment. 

We do this by:

  • Delivering unbiased, honest guidance,
  • Implementing risk management strategies, and
  • Seeking out the facts before we offer an opinion.

Knowledge

Our job is to stay knowledgeable in an ever-changing market landscape and educate you on the wealth management concepts you want to learn and we believe are important.                                                                                                

During our consultative process, we will:

  • Communicate the difference between what is appropriate versus what is popular at the moment,
  • Take the time to explain the markets and your investments in understandable language, and
  • Create realistic expectations during market fluctuations.

Credibility

We strive for trustworthiness and honesty in every aspect of our practice by:

  • Fully disclosing the risks and value (including fees) of investment programs and strategies,
  • Maintaining complete confidentiality regarding personal and business matters, and
  • Remaining objective and avoiding any conflicts of interest.

Innovation

The key to maintaining a high standard of service is our ability to be innovative and creative. 

We deliver innovation by:

  • Providing comprehensive products and services, not cookie-cutter solutions,
  • Combining a human touch with technological insights, and
  • Using the most advanced tools available.

Value

You should expect more for your money.  And we strive to deliver a service that meets and exceeds your expectations.

Our value is created by:

  • Developing and implementing strategies designed to create and preserve your intergenerational wealth,
  • Working closely with your tax, legal, and other professionals, and
  • Employing a fee-based account structure in an effort to keep us on the same side of the table with you.

 

 

While most of our accounts are fee-based through advisory services, we also serve clients who prefer to remain transactional through brokerage services.  We pride ourselves on employing a simple and easy-to-understand fee structure.  You have a right to know exactly what you are paying and how it is computed.

Where we reasonably believe it to be in a client’s best interest, we recommend:
