Choosing the right financial guidance can be essential to your financial independence and well-being. Therefore, it’s an important decision that merits careful consideration. Here, we offer reasons we believe may make us the right choice to serve as your trusted financial guides and investment counselors.
In today’s financial environment, we believe it’s a must to be globally invested. It’s a belief we not only preach, but practice on a daily basis.
Our portfolio managers, Doug Richards and Sheldon Ray, Jr., apply nearly 60 years of combined experience in the financial services industry, selecting individual securities to build the portfolios. We do not use the following financial products in our portfolio strategies: including open-end mutual funds, alternative investments and insurance in our managed portfolios.
Our dynamic process employs macroeconomic and geopolitical analysis that leads to sector selection and individual opportunities. We invest our personal money alongside our clients.
We always strive for good returns without taking undue risk, and to provide a better dividend yield than the S&P 500 index.
As discretionary portfolio managers, we have always acted in a fiduciary manner, putting our clients first.
Our clients enjoy complete transparency and open access to our team.
The client-advisor fit is incredibly important to us – it has to feel comfortable and be the right fit. It’s why we seek to develop relationships on each client’s terms.
We recognize that not everyone likes math or dealing with financial numbers, charts and graphs, so we seek to simplify the whole process for our clients.
Just a straightforward quarterly fee for our services.
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 2A as well as the client agreement.
