Where We Add Value
"Price is what you pay, value is what you get." - Warren Buffett
With so many professionals, corporations, and even websites offering investment advice, it's easy to get confused by the array of services, products, and plans. Prospective clients often ask us, "Where do you add value? What distinguishes you from the pack?" What follows is a brief response designed to assure you that partnering with our firm could be among the wisest decisions you ever make.
There are literally hundreds of thousands of people in the field of financial services who act as investment advisors, managing a client's portfolio for a fee or earning commissions on trades. But few of them ever consider doing anything beyond investments. We believe that we can offer superior investment guidance while providing something more - comprehensive wealth management.
Our approach to planning is carefully designed for our clients. Our planning services are as unique and diverse as the clients we serve. Because there is no cookie-cutter solution when it comes to managing our client's financial futures, we stock our shelves with the finest financial ingredients and cook up customized solutions that leave our clients calling for seconds. The cooking analogy aside, we partner with our clients to help make their goals a reality - preserving their wealth, preparing for tomorrow, and putting it all together.
As stated above, accumulation of assets is just one of several areas that we focus on. We also provide expertise in retirement planning, estate planning, risk management, taxation, business planning, and asset allocation. This commitment to a life planning approach makes financial planning personal and addresses specific individual needs.
We employ a dynamic educational process that allows clients to visualize their personal goals and model the financial consequences of their choices. We rely on state-of-the-art software to plan and illustrate our strategies. We have partnerships with CPAs, attorneys, and other professionals dedicated to working as a team to meet all aspects of our clients's needs.
Most important - what separates our firm from the others -are the relationships we develop with our clients. We built our firm based on the fundamental elements of mutual trust, honesty, and respect, which helps us better strive to help make your goals a reality.
