Why Do I Need A Financial Advisor?
Our firm offers independent advice – our financial professionals are registered investment advisors and practice a fiduciary standard, as opposed to a suitability standard. The fiduciary standard, created within the Investment Advisors Act of 1940 regulates firms such as ours, by the SEC and state regulatory agencies. By law, we must place the interests of our clients above our own interests. Our firm is proud to adhere to this philosophy and law.
By contrast, suitability standards are when advisors make recommendations to their clients in a situation where the advisor only has to reasonably believe any recommendations made are suitable for our client’s financial needs, goals and best interests. This standard is not good enough for us!
As professional financial advisors, we offer independent advice, as Registered Investment Advisors. The financial world is complex and we believe in working with experts to help navigate and protect your family. We offer a quarterback type approach, where we collaborate with your other advisors, such as attorneys, CPAs and other business professionals. We know the ever-changing market conditions and also understand income and estate tax law changes.
Our firm is owned 100% by investment professionals and our combined staff experience within the financial services industry totals 237 years. We’re not a large firm with layers of bureaucracy … we’re small, nimble and mighty. Contact us to schedule a complimentary initial financial review. We look forward to meeting with you and helping you identify strategies for you to meet your financial goals.
