My Services

Financial Advice & Consulting

To offer financial advice an advisor should have intrinsic knowledge of a client’s assets, liabilities, sources of income, and expenses. After indepth discussions about the client’s financial goals, investment time horizion, and investment risk tolerance the advisor and the client should be able to put together a plan of action. Any financial plan is going to change over time as the needs and objectives of the client change as do the the financial markets. The key is constant communication and updating relevant information to keep a financial plan current and on track is to meet the financial goals.

Financial Planning for Individuals

The first objective is to establish and identify a client’s financial goals. This process would also identify the client’s time horizon and risk tolerance. My role as an advisor would be to clearly understand these objectives and match the best available financial products to meet these goals. My goal is to put the client’s interests first and to advise from an unbiased point of view. My job is to educate the client of the available options to help them make the right choices in reaching their financial goals. This is an ongoing process as over time a client’s financial goals may change just as the financial markets change

Portfolio Management

Proper portfolio management is based on the client’s financial goals and objectives. Asset allocation is a key concept and determined by the financial planning process. The portfolio is comprised of investment assets determined by asset allocation, usually broken down as cash, fixed income, and equities. Think of investment assets as employees and they have a job to do. For example if the asset allocation determines to have 30% of assets in fixed income and job performance is determined by yield, if the asset does not generate the required yield, you fire them and get new fixed income employees. This could be said for all asset categories. Constant review and monitoring of the portfolio is essential in determining if the portfolio is meeting the financial objectives of the client. If it works, stay with it, if not fire the investment employee and hire new ones.
