Experienced financial guidance for institutional clients

The institutional clients we serve include private schools, nonprofit organizations, professional firms, foundations, endowments and company retirement plans. We are dedicated to serving the mission of your organization and to helping you thrive today and for years to come. You can rely on us for insightful strategies to address the specific issues you face and a clearly designed, conservative investment approach designed for the careful management and preservation of assets.

We are experienced in all aspects of managing wealth, from cash flow management to risk management, and we are prepared to work together with your board members, directors, trustees, attorneys and CPAs in providing our expertise in areas such as cash management, transaction services, asset allocation, alternative investments and portfolio construction and management. Other specialized services we offer include:

Investment management

Our objectives are to preserve wealth, achieve a reasonable rate of return, and counter the erosive effects of inflation and taxes. We provide discretionary asset management services and remain committed to following a disciplined investment process. We believe that a proper asset allocation among cash, equity, fixed-income securities and alternative investments can be an effective way to pursue investment goals. We believe the formula for investment management should include the key components of skilled investment research, long-term planning and a well-managed professional relationship.

Asset allocation does not guarantee a profit nor protect against loss.

Corporate retirement plans

As a plan sponsor, you are legally responsible for adhering to fiduciary requirements set forth by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) – particularly those relating to investment prudence and diversity. We can provide guidance to help you ensure that you remain in compliance.

We have expertise in establishing, implementing and managing qualified retirement plans for company executives and their employees. Our team is well versed in key areas such as investment selection, comparative vendor analysis, the development of an Investment Policy Statement and helping you meet your fiduciary obligations. We can review your current plan and help you design, manage and monitor a plan.

Business succession planning

A business succession plan helps you address and resolve many important considerations. Should you transfer ownership to family members or employees or perhaps an outside party? Shouldn’t you have an orderly plan in place in the event of an incapacitating health event or death? How can you pull money out of the business in a tax-efficient manner? We help you answer these important questions and smooth the transition by building a solid business succession plan.
