Mission Statement

Our Mission

Our primary mission is to develop relationships with our clients, which are established on mutual trust. Clients entrust us with their life savings and legacies. This is a responsibility we do not take lightly. Clients’ confidence in our team’s approach is earned through a personal service that connects prudent investment planning, asset allocation, and risk management strategies with their financial objectives. We strive to forge lifelong relationships by helping to preserve and grow clients' wealth and by acting as trusted advisors during significant life-changing events.

Our Approach

We believe in a comprehensive approach to investment planning and investment management. Markets have become increasingly complex and unpredictable, and consequently investment strategies must evolve. Our approach is advice-oriented rather than product-focused. Clients can expect that their trusted advisors will seek the most suitable investment plan for their unique situation.

Fee-Based Advice

In order to alleviate conflicts of interest, clients are charged a fee based on their account values rather than a commission per transaction. Our fees may vary due to investment strategy, asset class, and/or account values. Furthermore, we believe there must be a constant line of communication between clients and advisors. Periodic portfolio reviews are essential even when no changes are necessary. This business model is consistent with our belief that we must constantly monitor our clients' situations as markets evolve.

Customized Portfolios

With the help of technologies provided through Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network, our team builds portfolios that help clients to accomplish their objectives. We recognize that there is no one-size-fits-all strategy in the investment world. Understanding and monitoring risk is our primary concern as we position our clients. Our customized portfolios allow us to better match clients' risk exposures to their overall risk tolerances and goals.

* Since no one investment program is suitable for all types of investors, this information is provided for informational purposes only. We need to review your investment objectives, risk tolerance and liquidity needs before we introduce suitable managers/investment programs to you.
** Advisory programs may not be suitable for all investors. Please carefully review the Wells Fargo Advisors advisory disclosure document for a full description of our services. The minimum account size for advisory programs will vary. 

Client Profile: Are we a good fit?

Our goal is to help you take a proactive approach to your personal financial situation. We are dedicated to helping you make sound decisions for your financial future. Helping you gain a better understanding of investing, retirement, estate planning, and wealth preservation. Most importantly, we hope you see the value of working with us to pursue your financial goals.

We thrive on serving a small, exclusive group of high-net-worth individuals, families and small business owners, all of whom, just like you, seek both a personal and professional approach from our close-knit family of investors.

We recommend that prospective clients fulfill certain criteria within three categories in order to become a client: attitude, advocacy, and assets. The following guidelines determine whether or not we will accept a new client. Business relationships must be mutually compatible to be successful. As a result the guidelines are made as clear and readily accessible to prospective clients as possible.

1. Attitude

Clients are first and foremost our personal friends with whom we have developed mutual trust through common goals. We have an immense loyalty to our clients and consider them a part of a small, close-knit family. Our team collaborates with clients to devise well-defined, long-term financial objectives, which leads to lifelong or even cross-generational relationships. We expect clients to endorse a long-term perspective and to work with us to develop a customized investment plan. In summary, clients follow two principles:

·         They have a history of long-term relationships with other professionals.

·         They fully empower us as their "Personal CFO."

2. Advocacy

Our reputation has been established on integrity and trust, forged over many years of value-added service. These core values are essential in how the practice operates. The family environment is at the center of the client network. The question we ask is: Would we be willing to advocate a prospect’s personal or professional work to others? Likewise, the prospect must ask: Would I be willing to recommend this practice to friends and family?

3. Assets

While a client’s attitude and advocacy are the primary considerations, the practice’s experience is best suited to high net worth families and individuals. As a result, the level of investable assets will be a secondary criterion.
