About Global View, LLC

Global View is an independent, fee-ONLY Registered Investment Advisory firm headquartered in Greenville, SC. Our team of fiduciaries - consisting of five Advisors and support staff - work together to satisfy the needs of our clients. All of our partners are CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER Practioners. Your advisor will incorporate an understanding of income taxation and estate planning issues into investment management, and will work closely with accountants and attorneys to satisfy your needs.

Because we are not affiliated with a major investment bank, we do not sell proprietary products. Our business as a fiduciary Registered Investment Advisory firm means that we only accept payment from our clients, and that our clients will never pay commissions, penalties, or any other unexpected fees. We believe this better aligns our interests with those of our clients', with the end goal of always helping the client attain their goal.

Our practice is based on the fundamental principal that human beings often make errors in decision making that are avoidable. Behavioral research and market performance history clearly illustrate that individual investors suffer largely because they do not make choices based on a rational framework. We feel it is our responsibility to provide that framework to our clients and implement it for them based on their unique needs and circumstances including income goals, investment time horizon, survivorship needs, and estate and legacy planning.
