Senior Vice President - Financial Advisor, Private Client Group, Senior Portfolio Manager - Portfolio Focus
We recognize that the financial markets can be very complex and intimidating. To add clarity, we work closely with you to offer comprehensive solutions given your individual situation. Client comfort is paramount, so we consistently make ourselves available to address any inquiries you may have, and our goal is to be your primary advisor. To the extent you allow us, we work collaboratively with your other hired professionals to ensure an all-inclusive approach. We are committed to educating our clients so they may become better investors. While we appreciate that many clients delegate investment responsibility to us, our experience suggests there is a strong correlation between investor education and investment success. We embrace the opportunity to share our resources and professional experience with those clients willing to engage.
To ensure there is good chemistry between us, an important first step is getting to know each other. Achieving financial security can be a challenging process and it’s important our clients are comfortable with our approach and share a similar long term commitment to success. After learning about your goals and aspirations, we also discuss your concerns and any potential apprehension you may have. We do not subscribe to a “one size fits all” philosophy and our personalized approach validates this. After a thorough study of your current resources and corresponding objectives, we model out your financial future to assess if they are properly aligned. We then recommend and implement an investment approach well-suited to your individual circumstance. As the process continues, we formulate, position and manage your portfolio according to your stated objective. If a situation arises that warrants it, we bring in third party professionals to ensure comprehensive coverage. We recognize that a prudent investment program is dynamic and ongoing. Consequently, we put a big premium on transparent reporting and fee structure, as well as open, two-way communication. All client contact is strictly confidential and we take our professional responsibility very seriously.
We are downgrading our stance on equities to Underweight. At the same time, we lay out the developments we are watching for that could put us back in an environment where future rewards considerably outweigh near-term risks. Read the full economic outlook in the latest edition of Global Insight.
If you are not already a valued client, we invite you to experience the skill and dedication of a team built on integrity, client service and a spectrum of services for individuals, families and institutions and their assets.
