Our Core Values: Client Centered - We are true fiduciaries. We partner with clients to help them achieve their financial goals, track their progress and live a financially fit life. We evaluate ourselves based on our ability to help our clients be financially successful in the long-term. Moving the Profession Forward - We develop proprietary tools and innovative solutions (importantly including technology) to address timely issues, which keep our firm at the forefront of financial planning and investment management. Open Communication - We are active, attentive listeners, who communicate clearly. Our goal is to understand our clients - respecting situations, lifestyles, and preferences, in terms of financial decisions and more – and having them understand us. Education - We help demystify the financial lives of our clients through proactive communication and frequent meetings including a broad array of educational events. We want to educate our clients so they feel empowered, increase their confidence and knowledge, and sleep well at night as a result. Value-Oriented - We are independent thinkers, committed to due diligence through rigorous reviews of potential investments. We seek value investments that diversify and strengthen portfolios in terms of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, ETFs, private equity, and alternatives. Risk Awareness - We believe that financial success is achieved through diversified portfolios that reflect each client's current situation and risk tolerance.
