Investment Management

Investment portfolios are customized to meet the objectives of each client. While managing an appropriate level of risk, we focus on essential investment principles including diversification, asset allocation, and tax efficiency. We ensure a consistent, disciplined approach in investment decision-making, which mitigates emotionally based decision errors. Every family has unique financial needs, and therefore we promise to give specific one-on-one attention to your set of circumstances. Our investment management services include a financial plan.

Understanding Client Needs

In an effort to develop a complete understanding of a client’s needs, we discuss the particular goals, risk tolerance, time horizon, income requirements, tax status and special circumstances unique to the you and your portfolio.

Developing the Investment Policy

Based on our understanding of your specific needs, we draft your Investment Policy. The Investment Policy specifies your time horizon, risk tolerance, the types of securities to invest in and the asset allocation of your portfolio. It will also discuss your income requirements and any extraordinary circumstances which will affect the management of your assets. Your Investment Policy is our joint plan to reach your goals.

Implementing the Investment Plan

Only once you have reviewed and approved the Investment Policy will we begin the investment process.

Monitoring and Reporting

We will manage your portfolio in accordance with your Investment Policy. This includes monitoring your investments, providing you with quarterly portfolio appraisal and performance reports, investing additional cash inflows, re-balancing to Investment Policy targets, and maintaining detailed tax records for your account. Above all, we focus on maximizing after-tax return while maintaining a long-term perspective and an appropriate level of risk.

Conducting Periodic Meetings

We will have periodic meetings as necessary to review your portfolio and your Investment Policy, and to discuss any significant changes in your life or financial situation.
