Financial Advice & Consulting
Miracle Mile Advisors is an industry pioneer in providing comprehensive financial planning and tactical investment advice using low cost index funds and ETFs to high net worth families. Our firm was founded by experienced Wall Street advisors on the belief that investment advice should be objective, transparent, and customized. Excessive fees, lack of transparency, and the risk of fraud or dramatic underperformance in active management all serve to reduce returns and add unnecessary complexity to a clients experience. Simply put, we understood that sophisticated investment strategies using low cost ETFs deliver better results with the transparency clients are looking for in todays uncertain market environment.
Financial Planning for Individuals
Good planning is often more important than good investment results. We give you both. The initial step is to sit down and learn more about who you are and the long term goals for your wealth. Once we have developed a basic understanding of you, we then begin the process of designing a plan that meets your unique sets of goals. There are a host of questions that will be very meaningful in determining your success. What income (both employment and portfolio) do you need now and in the future? How are your assets located amongst your taxable and tax deferred entities? Is your estate plan structured to take full advantage of the recent tax law changes? If you own a business, what steps have you taken to protect your livelihood and plan for the future? What other financial events (and surprises) do you need to account for in the future? Do you have the appropriate insurance policies in place to protect your family? We will take the time to sit down with you and understand your goals to make a plan that best fits your specific needs.
Our partners have an average of 17 years of investment advisory experience in working with clients ranging from $1 million to over $1 billion in liquid assets. After spending years constructing complex portfolios using hedge funds, fund of funds, and a variety of active managers they decided there was a better way. We saw that the structure of financial incentives and the motivation to sell high fee products to clients was creating conflicts of interest between the goals of these traditional firms and the needs of the clients. Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) provide clients diversification, liquidity and broad exposure to virtually any asset class. With ETFs in our portfolio, instead of hedge funds or active mutual funds, we can build tax- efficient, lower-cost global portfolios that minimize risks such as style drift or portfolio manager turnover. The most compelling reason for using indexes or ETFs lies in the fact that the majority of active portfolio managers do not outperform their benchmark index after fees and expenses.
