All about You

When you decide to join our private client group, we will work together to craft a portfolio that meets your personal, family, or company needs. Perhaps retirement income is your goal, or maybe you are looking to reduce portfolio risk. We can help. We are committed to your comfort and peace of mind.

During our more than two decades investing for private clients, we have made income investing a focus of our investment strategy. A steady stream of tax-efficient dividend and interest payments is a comfort to conservative investors during all market cycles.

We aren’t traders nor speculators, and we don’t offer strategies for either approach. We consider ourselves conservative investors and we look for value in all our equity portfolios. We diversify globally and across all asset classes, with a focus on dividend-paying equities and high-quality government and corporate bonds. A typical client portfolio includes both international and domestic securities consisting of equities, funds and bonds.

Investment research shows that markets go up and markets go down. Long dry spells occur for stock and bond prices. Our solution is to make dividends and interest a major focus of client portfolios. A relatively high level of dividends today makes good common sense for investors. Active management of a bond portfolio can substantially improve yields in a low interest rate environment. Regular cash payments year in and year out can help compensate for weak stock market performance and low bond yields. Consider a portfolio with an emphasis on dividends. -We believe that this is a time-tested strategy to build wealth.
