For many, it's not so much what you do, but why you do it. It's what moves you from a product to a service or from doubt and skepticism to trust and loyalty. It defines who we are.
It may be somewhat cliché, but we ALWAYS put your interests first and strive to do the right thing . . . even when others aren't looking. We believe that success without integrity is not true success at all, and it's honesty, integrity and sound ethics that engender trust, which is the cornerstone of our relationships with people - with you.
We are fortunate to have found passion in our work and in our lives. As Confucius once said, "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." Just being "good enough" is never enough for us, and we are always seeking ways to be better at what we do and how we do it.
We share a genuine concern for people and want to make a difference. Beyond the numbers, our business is about helping you improve your lives, and while it may be altruistic to believe you can leave the world a better place, we always act with this goal in mind.
While we always seek to achieve great things professionally, and we work very hard, we also recognize how important it is to balance our professional lives with our personal lives. We understand your need to find balance between living for today and preparing for tomorrow and we've incorporated this into our approach.
Our greatest reward is helping you take control of your financial life and make the best of your situation. As an independent Registered Investment Advisor, we are fee-based and free to act on your behalf and in your best interests. We do not accept any form of investment-based commissions whatsoever.
Since we are independent, we offer no proprietary products, choosing instead to work with a team of experienced money managers employing modern asset allocation strategies. This type of approach is intended to help smooth out returns and increases the chances of success in all types of markets. Because we are paid by you, not the investment companies, our interests are in direct alignment.
We have a strong, outside network of CPAs, attorneys, real estate and mortgage advisors, and others who provide the expertise necessary to develop a holistic financial plan. Should you already have relationships with these advisors, we are more than happy to work with them as well. And as your advocate, we're not afraid to challenge them. It is a team we manage so you don't have to.
