About Palmerston Group Advisors, LLC

Palmerston Group Advisors, a firm best known for its Margin of Safety discipline, built its strategy only after carefully studying the best in the business. Consider: 1. Few fund managers have genuinely market-beating records of ten or more years. 2. Most of this elite group uses a version of Margin of Safety, the skill of buying assets when "on sale" at a deep discount to their true value. Most excel in bear markets. 3. Few advisors strategically focus on these top managers or their investment ideas when creating client portfolios. Nor do many independent firms focus on these managers when offering allocation advice. In contrast, Palmerston sees these top managers as a huge asset for our clients. We start with what works best, and thus use Margin of Safety for all clients. For client portfolios, we use the ideas and often the (no-load) funds of managers with proven, profitable records.

At ClearFocus, we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of integrity in our relationship with you, our client. We act in your best interest, as a true fiduciary, because we begin our planning process by understanding your situation and your financial goals. As a result, the information, services, and products we provide are always based on your specific needs and circumstances. Our fiduciary standard also helps to insure you of constant vigilance over your financial plan.

As trusted stewards of your wealth, we take pride in our role as partners with you on your journey.

About Clear Focus Financial

At ClearFocus, we believe the current times require a new and higher level of financial planning. We focus on the individual first and the numbers second. The fluid nature of today's economic climate requires constant vigilance and a higher level of understanding of individual needs in order to make the decisions necessary to help our clients to reach their financial goals. Financial decision making, be it saving, spending, investing, or insuring is complicated and difficult on your own. There is no shortage of opinions and products being offered as the "best kept secret or magic bullet" for financial success. The old approach of a one-time, off the rack product and solution just won't do. The retail financial planning and investment management industry has simply become a crowded market place of salesman and products, that does not lend itself to clear and prudent decision making. Individuals and business owners are forced to diagnose their difficulties and prescribe solutions based on limited information and sales pitches. It is critical for financial success that individuals and business owners make informed decisions that are based on their specific plan and not sales pressure.
