"Helping People Make Smart Choices about Life and Money Since 1986"
Our Investment Philosophy
We believe in an investment philosophy designed to seek investment participation in rising markets and to seek protection for assets in declining markets.
In reviewing investment strategies and concepts, our practice identifies and utilizes three approaches. The first and most common is the "buy and hold” Yet, beyond this, we introduce our clients to two very distinct types of professional asset allocation: “strategic asset allocation” and “tactical asset allocation.”
We view these three totally different yet highly disciplined strategies as different types of “arrows in your quiver.” It’s diversification that reaches a more sophisticated level than that which the typical investor employs.
To take advantage of these tools, we help our clients engage the services of independent third party money managers (Registered Investment Advisors). “As little sleep as you may lose over your accounts now, you can lose even less knowing that a professional money management firm has been assigned to your accounts,” says Neal. We believe that involving professional money managers aligns client accounts with well-reasoned and highly disciplined specialized planning and investment expertise.
We also believe in supporting our clients and their families in maintaining a balanced lifestyle. That's where Financial LIFE (Qualitative) Planning - Click Here comes into play. We have been known to help young clients develop spending plans, explaining “tough love” ideas to struggling parents, and to discuss health/personal responsibility issues with our clients. This personal commitment to helping you and your family reach your financial goals with an array of sound investment strategies is what distinguishes our practice.
Asset allocation or diversification do not guarantee a profit or protect against a loss.
