The scope of any financial planning and/or consulting services to be provided depends upon the needs of the client and the terms of the engagement. We do not serve as an attorney, an accountant, nor an insurance agent; no portion of our services should be construed as such. Accordingly, we do not prepare estate planning documents, tax returns, nor sell insurance products.
Our investment philosophy is very simple: we use multiple asset classes to meet your investment objectives. This is not a get-rich-quick strategy or a “hot-tip” investment product. Instead, we employ a disciplined process that sophisticated institutional investors have followed for decades in managing their investments.
