Portfolio Management and Investments

What is our Investment Management Process? 

Think of your investment portfolio as the place where your wealth will live and potentially thrive. We strive to make the most appropriate investment recommendations for your unique situation. As your goals evolve, we will work with you and make adjustments to your strategy. Our investment process consists of these steps:

  1. Define Goals: Understanding you - a formal assessment of your needs and goals
  2. Risk Tolerance: Evaluating your time frame and tolerance for risk
  3. Asset Allocation/Portfolio Construction: - developing the foundation and framework for your portfolio
  4. Investment Fund selection: based upon risk tolerance, time horizon, and growth or income goals
  5. Tax Strategy: Evaluation of your tax strategy
  6. Reviews: Portfolio Monitoring & Revisions- evaluating portfolio performance regularly, with care and maintenance of your portfolio over time

Wealth Management Platform

The Wealth Management Platform (WMP) is an integrated delivery of wide-ranging investment strategies. We have four different wealth management services to choose from:

  • Separately Managed Accounts: With a Separately Managed Account (SMA), clients enjoy direct ownership of the securities held in their portfolios, allowing for greater flexibility, more control and significant tax advantages over other investment vehicles. In addition, clients can select managers employing Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) management techniques. 
  • Advisor Managed Portfolio: The Advisor Managed Portfolios (AMP) program allows for us to easily construct and manage custom portfolios. AMP also provides us with advanced, powerful trading and rebalancing tools. The AMP program is designed to be a unique and valuable component of our overall advisory practice.
  • Genesis Model Portfolios: We partner with competitive third party money manager strategists which allows us to construct each client portfolio and conduct ongoing investment management strategies. By assigning the asset allocation, individual securities decisions, and maintenance to these experienced money managers. Our goal is to deliver tailored investment strategies for all of our clients’ strategic investment needs,
  • Unified Managed Accounts: Our Unified Managed Account (UMA) allows us to build customized portfolios and seamlessly manage an allocation of traditional separate account strategies, Genesis Model Portfolio Strategies, mutual funds, and ETFs in a single client account. In addition, UMAs enable us with options which include individual equities overlay features.

Our minimum amount for investing in the Wealth Management Platform is $100,000.  If you are unable to invest $100,000, we are still able to work together with our ongoing Financial Planning services.
