Financial Services

Financial Advice & Consulting

TTG provides personalized confidential financial planning and investment management to individuals, pension and profit sharing plans, trusts, estates, charitable organizations and small businesses. Advice is provided through consultation with the client and may include: determination of financial objectives, identification of financial problems, cash flow management, tax planning, insurance review, investment management, education funding, retirement planning, and estate planning. TTG is strictly a fee-only financial planning and investment management firm. The firm does not sell annuities, insurance, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, limited partnerships, or other commissioned products. The firm is not affiliated with entities that sell financial products or securities. No commissions in any form are accepted. Investment advice is an integral part of financial planning. In addition, TTG advises clients regarding cash flow, college planning, retirement planning, tax planning, estate planning and business planning. The client always maintains asset control. TTG places trades for clients under a limited power of attorney. Periodic reviews are also communicated to provide reminders of the specific courses of action that need to be taken. More frequent reviews occur but are not necessarily communicated to the client unless immediate changes are recommended. Other professionals (e.g., lawyers, accountants, insurance agents, etc.) are engaged directly by the client on an as-needed basis. The initial meeting, which may be by telephone or video conference, is free of charge and is considered an exploratory interview to determine the extent to which financial planning and investment management may be beneficial to the client.

Portfolio Management

TTG Financial utilizes asset allocation models and sophisticated technical tools to construct a target allocation for the Investor. This allocation will reflect both the Investor's tolerance to market volatility, personal goals and expectations, as well as trends in the stock and economy in general. This methodology is referred to as Enhanced Portfolio Analysis. Enhanced Portfolio Analysis is made up of four primary components:

Ø It uses Modern Portfolio Analysis to determine your optimum asset allocation.

Ø It utilizes Dow Cyclical Analysis to assist in identifying primary market trends and adjusts your holdings, or takes defensive positions to reflect these trends.

Ø It utilizes technical analysis to assist in identifying secondary market trends and then adjusts your portfolio or takes defensive positions to reflect these trends.

Ø It uses fundamental analysis of each security in the Investor's portfolio to assure "best of breed" representation in each identified asset class.

Ø TTG will deploy these strategies on a discretionary basis. The client does not normally have input on specific investment decisions. Exceptions are made on a case by case basis.


WiserAdvisor provides referrals to financial professionals. WiserAdvisor is not a current client of advisor or advisory services. Financial professionals pay cash compensation for these referrals, which creates the incentive for WiserAdvisor to make these referrals, resulting in a conflict of interest.
