Your entire financial picture needs to be considered as a whole in order to properly diversify holdings. Your goals and time horizon will also determine which strategies are appropriate. We believe in the benefits of proper diversification. However, we believe that traditional strategies of diversifying across equity styles are no longer enough. Therefore, we seek true diversification between non-correlating assets and across asset types to help mitigate market risk.
We help you set realistic expectations for your investment returns. We believe that the single best way you can contribute to your future independence is through saving consistently, building your assets, and treating your future with the care and attention it deserves. We strive to ensure that your assets are positioned to work for you. Investors should be aware that there are risks inherent in all investments, such as fluctuations in investment principal.

The old expectation of a 20-year retirement is obsolete. According to Dr. Thomas Perls of the New England Centenarian Study, the fastest-growing segment of the population is those over 100. We believe that this trend will only strengthen as medical care improves. Therefore, we assume that our clients will live to the age of 100 and try to plan appropriately. We believe, this implies that many client portfolios will need to remain oriented towards growth even during retirement. One of the most important goals of retirement planning is to develop a strategy that can provide enough income over your entire lifetime, however long that may be. Additionally, we will consider the effect of wealth transfers to your heirs, as part of estate planning.
