When it comes to investing for the future, you've likely had a couple of options: You could do it yourself, or you could hand it off to an investment manager. The first can be tedious, time-consuming, and error-prone; the second has historically meant tolerating outdated technology and potential conflicts of interest.
We're a fiduciary, which means we act in your best interests. Unlike many other investment managers, we aren't compensated for choosing certain funds for your portfolio, and we don't have our own investment products to sell. We only do what we believe is right for you.
It's hard to imagine, but a brokerage used to be the only place you could get real-time stock quotes. Clients couldn't make a transaction unless they went into the office or called. Our advice shifted from stock and mutual fund selection to asset allocation and portfolio design based on your risk tolerance. That has been replaced because, if you can build a portfolio based on a questionnaire, then computers can do that cheaper, and maybe better.

Many people struggle to separate their emotions from investing. Markets go up and down. Reacting to current market conditions may lead to making poor investment decisions.
Daily market news and commentary can challenge your investment discipline.
Some messages stir anxiety about the future while others tempt you to chase the latest investment fad. When headlines unsettle you, consider the source and maintain a long‑term perspective.
A financial advisor can offer expertise and guidance to help you focus on actions that add value. This can lead to a better investment experience.
We start with your goal—the reason you're investing. Then, we make various recommendations: risk level, amount to invest, and type of account.
This type of personalized strategy is called "goal-based investing," and research shows it improves outcomes by encouraging optimal behavior and more precise wealth management.
We'll create a slightly more conservative portfolio, given that this is a short- to medium-term goal.
We're here to help you roll over old 401(k)s and IRAs to help you make the most of your money.
We're prepared, because our advice model factors in market downturns. We've also put guardrails in place to help prevent you from making decisions in the heat of the moment.
You can sync your outside accounts, such as other 401k's investments and bank accounts, to see if you're losing money to high fees and uninvested cash.
