Investment Management Services 

Is managing your investments getting too time consuming and complicated?  Do you want a professional Fiduciary CFP® to delegate your investment decisions to?  Let's chat!

 We can help you:

  • Construct a well-diversified and low cost portfolio.
  • Manage retirement income distributions and cash flow.
  • Tax location coordination to minimize taxes.
  • Process actual trades for your accounts; Roth conversions and rebalancing when needed.
  • Monitor overexposure to certain industries and countries
  • Invest in portfolios that match your values, if requested
  • Determine your risk tolerance and risk capacity
  • Meetings at least once a year to review your portfolio.

This is an optional service.  We don't require you to move your investment accounts to us unless it makes your life easier, and you feel it would be of benefit.  

We don't design cookie cutter portfolios.  Instead, we carefully research and design individually-tailored portfolios that will help you build your wealth over time, meet your retirement income goals, while also enabling you to sleep at night!  We do this through managing risk and collaborating with you to discover what level of risk you are comfortable with.  Our approach to investing is evidence-based, and although we can't eliminate risk completely, we seek to minimize risk through asset allocation and monitoring your accounts with us.   We help our clients focus on their long-term goals and long-term plans; not the day-to-day fluctuations in the market.  

We use Charles Schwab and SEI to safeguard client assets.  You can view your account online at any time, and you will receive quarterly statements from the custodian and if you have any questions, we are always available to help you.
