Sound advice you'll want to hear


Welcome

I work with business owners, retirees, executives and their families to design a custom-built plan to help simplify their financial lives and live their ideal lifestyle. I do this by guiding clients through a seven-step process that develops a mutual understanding and includes regular plan reviews.


Investment philosophy

After determining your goals, I use your interview responses to determine your volatility comfort zone. I do not have a one-size-fits-all solution. Since everyone has their own tolerance for turbulence, I customize your portfolio with the goal to limit it for your volatility comfort zone and possibly use investments you already own so you do not incur additional charges.

We try to limit volatility by using Modern Portfolio Theory — a scientific formula that determines the proper mix of stocks, bonds, cash and sometimes alternative investments — with a tactical slant. The key to this program’s success is remaining disciplined to maintain the proper allocation, and rebalancing on a regular basis so we naturally “buy low and sell high.”
