PRIVATE CLIENT SERVICES
We provide discretionary investment management for Individuals. We design and maintain customized investment portfolios for each client that range from conservative to aggressive, depending on the client’s needs for income, return and risk. For smaller accounts, we emphasize ETF’s (exchange traded funds) and for larger accounts we invest primarily in bonds and common stocks.
Lower and More Transparent Fee Structure
Low overhead and more specialized services reduce our cost structure which is reflected in the competitive fees charged to our clients. Fees range from .6% to 1.1%. Fees on non-registered accounts are tax deductible.
