Over the course of your life, your needs and priorities will change and evolve. We’ve developed our service offering with this in mind and craft each financial strategy with your short- and long-term objectives at the forefront. We believe that rather than focusing just on growth and dollar amount, our priority should always be the pursuit of the goals and milestones that are most important to you, your family and your ongoing success.
Our advisors offer comprehensive wealth management services that go far beyond just typical investment management to address every essential matter that money touches. It’s all in an effort to best serve you and your family, today and for every significant milestone along life’s journey.
In today’s often complex marketplace, even the most sophisticated investor is challenged to keep up and respond to changing conditions. By utilizing asset allocation strategies and carefully selected money managers across a diverse range of equity and fixed-income disciplines, our goal is to provide you with an institutional-quality portfolio designed to help achieve financial objectives.
Asset allocation does not guarantee a profit nor protect against losses.
Our objectives are to preserve your wealth, achieve a reasonable rate of return, and counter the erosive effects of inflation and taxes. We know 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. Alternative Investments are not suitable for every investor. They involve substantial risks that may be greater than those associated with traditional investments and may be offered only to clients who meet specific suitability requirements, including minimum net worth tests. There is no assurance that any investment will meet its investment objectives or that substantial losses will be avoided.
Preserving your wealth and maintaining your standard of living are among your highest priorities. Because people are living longer today, the possibility of spending 30 years in retirement requires careful planning and disciplined investing. We can create a plan for monthly distributions from your portfolio designed to preserve your principal. We can also assist you with longevity planning, required minimum distributions, income planning, tax planning, proper account titling and beneficiaries, multigenerational wealth transfer, charitable giving, and asset preservation and reallocation.
Through Raymond James, we offer personal lines of credit*, investment accounts with check writing, online bill payment, enhanced reporting and more. We also can assist you in evaluating short-term interest-bearing instruments such as brokered certificates of deposit, and cash sweep options.
*The personal line of credit is through a margin account.
A margin account may not be suitable for all investors. Borrowing on margin and using securities as collateral involves a high degree of risk, and an investor can lose more funds than he or she deposited in the account. Market conditions can magnify any potential for loss. If the market turns against the investor, he or she may be required to deposit additional securities and/or cash in the account. The securities in the account may be sold by the firm to meet the margin call, and the firm can sell the investor’s securities without contacting them. An investor is not entitled to choose which securities or other assets in his or her account are liquidated or sold to meet a margin call. The firm can increase its maintenance margin requirements at any time and is not required to provide an investor advance written notice. An investor is not entitled to an extension of time on a margin call. The interest rates charged are determined by the amount borrowed.

These policies have exclusions and/or limitations. The cost and availability of LTC insurance depend on factors such as age, health, and the type and amount of insurance purchased.

Asset allocation is one of the most important single determinants of overall investment performance and risk.* Choosing the appropriate mix of asset classes can also significantly reduce portfolio volatility. We make asset allocation a key component of our investment strategy, selecting a mix of asset classes that reflects your financial objectives, timeline and risk tolerance.
*Asset allocation does not guarantee a profit or protect against a loss.
Family wealth is often concentrated in a single stock, either inherited or earned during a successful business career.
