Trust is the number one determinant of success in any relationship. For years, Echelon has worked to earn our clients' trust. Our team cares about the individual dreams and goals of our clients. We always put the clients' needs first and conduct business with integrity, honesty and truth. When new clients team up with our Echelon advisors, they benefit from one-on-one investment counsel expected from a boutique firm, as well as access to robust technology and services from Echelon's custodial partnership with Charles Schwab Institutional Services including 401K PCRA accounts, and our relationship for ORP and 403(b) account management with Fidelity Management.
In addition, Echelon's customer service is exactly what our clients expect... nimble, knowledgeable and personal. Our clients know our advisors on a personal level and investment decisions are made only after the advisor understands the client's financial position and goals and how to best address those needs. Investing with Echelon is truly a team undertaking. We believe by working effectively together, we will glide across the finish line of financial security.

We manage all portfolios with a global view. Portfolios contain mutual funds and exchange traded funds that hold domestic and foreign securities. These portfolios typically have a domestic large, mid and small cap equity component, a foreign equity component and then a fixed income allocation. Each portfolio is designed with attention to the personal situation of the client. Through conversations with each client, we ascertain their personal risk tolerance, their acceptance of portfolio volatility, who they are and what their goals may be. In some instances, we use questionnaires to confirm risk tolerance.
