Our Process

We begin each family relationship with a thorough understanding of current income needs and long-term legacy planning. Our families are typically managed in-house by our own portfolio managers. We build clients’ portfolios on an individual basis, as opposed to using a predetermined asset allocation formula. Each relationship is managed at the family level and not automated across the board. Within our proprietary Rising Dividend Stock Strategy, we focus exclusively on companies with the potential of growing their dividends. Our advisory fee is transparent and comprehensive, which aligns our interests with yours every step of the way. We keep you informed through meetings, conference calls and emails.

Although affiliated with Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network, we are a private family practice only working with select families that are the right fit for our services. As such, we have no contractual obligations and are not beholden to any investment products, financial institutions or family of mutual funds. Our decisions are based solely on the best interests of the families we represent.

With a combination of predictable income and capital appreciation, our advisory strategy is designed to help today’s retirees looking to create income and or invest for the future.
