As independent professional advisors, we can offer you a personalized financial strategy, not a generic investment program. Your individual portfolio will be based on your unique situation, your attitudes, preferences and goals. It will be designed to account for change, both in the market and in your circumstances, so that it can work with you and for you at every stage of your life.
Our approach to investing is straightforward: we focus on becoming your partner in building the future you desire. As we work together, our advisors will thoroughly explain the investment strategies recommended, so that you'll be fully comfortable with all aspects of your investment program. Every decision we make will be focused on achieving the results you want. Our mission is to help our clients achieve financial independence through professional advice, sound risk management, quality investment products, and personal, efficient service.

Individual investments and the markets fluctuate over time, and as professionals, it is our job to enable you to make informed financial decisions using the full complement of resources at our disposal.
This process provides a framework for making decisions collaboratively and monitoring the outcome of those decisions over time.
Each step involves interaction between our team, the client, and outside professionals if needed.
We use a variety of tools including questionnaires and interviews to understand your personal goals, current financial situation, investment experience and risk tolerance. In this step, we make you fully aware of our capabilities and provide educational support to assist our clients in understanding the scope of services we offer to help you meet your objectives.
Our team analyzes the information you share with us and designs solutions intended to help you reach your objectives. This step may involve collaboration with other specialists or your existing professionals. We present our recommendations to you, answer your questions, consider alternatives and outline the steps we need to take to implement your plan.
In this step, we execute your customized strategy using the extensive tools available to us through Raymond James. This involves the selection of specific account types, investment products and optional services; we then complete the necessary paperwork in a coordinated approach.
Once implemented, we continually monitor the progress of our recommendations relative to your defined objectives and suggest changes where needed. A key to this step is your involvement in the process and communication of any significant changes in your life. We accomplish this by providing ongoing reporting of your account activity and by conducting periodic reviews.
