We would welcome the opportunity to provide a complimentary analysis of what your risk-adjusted, after-tax investment returns have been versus what our clients have enjoyed. Even if you have been relatively happy with your investments in recent years, we believe it would be well worth a few minutes of your time to ensure that not only are you not leaving money on the table in terms of excessive fund fees and tax inefficiencies, but that you are also taking the appropriate amount of risk for your individual circumstances.
