As a small independent Fee-Only Registered Investment Advisor, we count ourselves among the group of financial service providers who actually behave responsibly and without conflicts of interest toward our clients. We accept no commissions, trails, or other revenue streams outside of our low flat annual management fee. Furthermore, we provide our own investment strategies to our client directly choosing only those securities that makes sense based on market risks and opportunities thus eliminating layers of fees to outside management or any mandates to sell company product. Throughout our 25 year history, we are proud to say that we have maintained a clean and uncompromised business model as it related to our fiduciary responsibility toward our clients.
Unfortunately, not all in our industry can say as much. We feel it is important for investors to understand and see for themselves how much regular enforcement and fines for wrong doing happen every year. Our advice for all investors is to make sure you understand who you are working with and their regulatory history.
