Investment Advisory Services

Tailored And Attentive

We believe that personal wealth management requires a high level of specialized attention and world-class resources to realize your important life goals. We provide a hands-on and collaborative experience that is grounded in doing what’s best for each client.

Rigorous Portfolio Construction

Our holistic investment philosophy emphasizes goals-driven portfolio construction on an open architecture platform. We take a due diligence approach that examines every angle so that we may identify appropriate investment ideas. Our team selects high-quality instruments to build tailored portfolios and leverages a blend of financial tools and modeling techniques to refine investment decisions. We are keenly focused on returns net of fees/expenses and use active management when compelling performance criteria exist.

Emphasis on Tax Efficiency

We are experienced in tax efficiency and in building low-cost exposure to asset classes, which we take to a higher level than most. Our team works in partnership with CPAs and your other outside advisors to help structure your assets to enhance wealth and minimize tax liabilities.

Cash Plus

In this low interest rate environment, our decades of fixed-income experience results in an unusual understanding of successful risk-adjusted techniques for investing excess cash. Our team seeks to access higher yields while maintaining high-quality investment-grade credit exposure, which may generate higher income than cash deposit accounts and money market funds. We will often recommend a segmentation strategy that reflects the desired access to liquidity and improved yield return on cash and cash-like investments.

Ongoing Communications

Our portfolio management approach involves periodic tactical revisions and rebalancing allocations when appropriate. By maintaining frequent contact, we stay in tune with changes happening in your life that may lead to portfolio recalibration.

For clients who prefer minimal involvement in their investment portfolio activity, we provide J.P. Morgan Core Advisory Portfolios managed by J.P. Morgan’s Chief Investment Office portfolio management team.
