The majority of our clients employ us to serve as their investment adviser. Our primary role as the investment advisor is to build and manage investment portfolios for clients using primarily low-cost index funds, mutual funds and exchange traded funds (ETFs). Our primary belief is that long term investor results are determined by investment diversification and the amount of investment fees that are incurred by the investment portfolio. Our investment management fee is 0.50% per year for all portfolios over $250,000 and is assessed on a quarterly basis. All transactions fees (trading costs, commissions) are incurred by the client as assessed by Fidelity Investments who serves as the custodian of the client investment account.
Many of our investment management clients engage us to assist with their retirement income planning calculations. We assist our clients with retirement planning questions such as "What are the best ways for me to save more for retirement?", "Are there ways I could be more tax efficient in what I am currently doing to save for retirement?", and "When can I realistically retire?"
We assist our investment management clients with various ways to plan for college expenses for children or grandchildren. We assist our clients with cost projections, cash flow analysis and the various options for saving for college expenses.
