Our difference is in the details

Rodenbaugh Wealth Team

Finding the right advisory team to serve as your trusted partner is essential for your financial independence and well-being. Here we shine a light on the ways we strive to stand out – and the reasons we believe you may want to give serious consideration to employing our services.

Customized investment strategies

In addition to investment strategies that use stocks, bonds, mutual funds and ETFs, we look for additional opportunities in alternatives such as real estate trust and private credit. On average, we find that risk management is more important to wealthier individuals. We have considered hedge funds and managed futures, but we prefer to strive for more consistent investments for our clients.

One-to-one financial guidance

We’re not a big team – and that is by intention. Having a boutique-style practice means you always get the attention of a senior-level advisor. Mike, a 30-year industry veteran, will be the one who is listening to you share your goals and dreams. He will then build a financial plan to help you reach those goals and will monitor your progress through the years.

Dedicated service and a quality client experience

We believe the key to quality service is connecting with people on a personal level. We enjoy building close relationships with our clients. If a client has a need, we address the matter in a prompt manner.

A well-established process for personalizing your wealth plan

Our team strives to provide you with a financial plan that fits your life and goals.

Our discretionary management approach*

Discretionary investment management is designed to free our clients from the burden of making day-to-day investment decisions on their own. As a result, our clients do not need to spend their time wrestling with investment decisions.

Our affiliation with Raymond James

As one of the largest independent financial services firms in America, Raymond James gives us the freedom to offer objective advice based solely on what’s best for our clients. Raymond James also gives us access to its robust resources, cutting-edge technology and sophisticated investment tools and vehicles, including those of Raymond James Bank and Raymond James Trust.

We care about our clients and community

We’re very involved with our clients and communities. There’s a cooperative spirit of us all being on life’s journey together and that the communities in which we live and work deserve our support. We genuinely enjoy the camaraderie we have with our clients. We know what’s important to them and their families. Helping them with their financial lives never feels like just a job to us.

Alternative investments involve specific 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. You should consider the special risks with alternative investments including limited liquidity, tax considerations, incentive fee structures, potentially speculative investment strategies, and different regulatory and reporting requirements. You should only invest in alternative investments if you do not require a liquid investment and can bear the risk of substantial losses.

Real estate investments can be subject to different and greater risks than more diversified investments. Declines in the value of real estate, economic conditions, property taxes, tax laws and interest rates all present potential risks to real estate investments.

Investments mentioned may not be suitable for all investors.

*In a fee-based account clients pay a quarterly fee, based on the level of assets in the account, for the services of a financial advisor as part of an advisory relationship. In deciding to pay a fee rather than commissions, clients should understand that the fee may be higher than a commission alternative during periods of lower trading. Advisory fees are in addition to the internal expenses charged by mutual funds and other investment company securities. To the extent that clients intend to hold these securities, the internal expenses should be included when evaluating the costs of a fee-based account. Clients should periodically re-evaluate whether the use of an asset-based fee continues to be appropriate in servicing their needs. A list of additional considerations, as well as the fee schedule, is available in the firm’s Form ADV Part II as well as the client agreement.

We provide our clients with customized strategies to meet their objectives.
