For Institutions –

A personalized approach to help our clients meet their goals


We are proud to maintain a 100% retention rate for our institutional clients. We employ an investment philosophy that emphasizes portfolio management that is personalized to your needs, using actively-managed portfolios composed predominantly of individual stocks and bonds. A personalized approach helps assure that holdings in your portfolio are in accordance with your particular investment goals and risk tolerance. We primarily use individual securities to avoid the layering of fees and the lack of personalization that are associated with mutual funds and the generic model portfolios used by many financial advisory firms.

We believe the customized service we provide each client sets us apart and allows us to meet each entity’s unique requirements. We focus on your investments, so you can focus on your organization’s goal.

Operating a pension plan presents unique challenges to both the plan’s trustee and its investment advisor. We understand the heavy responsibility trustees have to ensure that plan assets are being managed within appropriate risk parameters to achieve the plan’s funding obligations.
