Our investment philosophy is essentially conservative in nature. Operating within each client’s risk profile, an investment portfolio is structured which will achieve long-term growth without undue risk – as a result, both our clients and we, as advisors, sleep soundly at night.
Tax planning and minimization is a key component of the financial plan for most clients. As part of the overall plan, strategies such as income splitting, prudent use of leverage and family trusts are evaluated.
Each client’s account is monitored on an ongoing basis to take advantage of opportunities created by changed personal and economic circumstances. In addition, each plan is reviewed annually and appropriate adjustments are made.
We make ourselves as accessible to clients as possible. All telephone calls are returned promptly, either personally or by our assistants.
We believe that our best client is one who is fully informed. As a result, we have a strong commitment to client communication through regular newsletters, seminars, and client appreciation seminars. In addition, we maintain a library of some of the very best books on personal finance, available for loan to all clients.
