All things equal we believe in lower fees, as most actively managed funds with higher management fees don't out perform in the long term. We believe in factor based investing to pursue out performance as illustrated by academia and firms like DFA. We offer Exclusive portfolios from Separately Managed Accounts (SMAs), Unified Managed Accounts (UMAs) institutional share class funds, retail no load funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).We custom build portfolios for our clients based on what the required rate of return is needed to fund all their various life goals through our Dynamic Financial Life Planning Services. We consider each client’s time horizon and personal biases when it comes to their preference for performance vs downside risk management vs tax advantaged portfolios vs overall fees. Sometimes those factors complement each other, other times one will outweigh the other factors. Therefore, we take into account all of our clients needs and biases before constructing their custom portfolios.Please call us if you would like to learn more on how we aim to better position your portfolios when it comes to lower fees, better potential performance, downside risk management and taxes.
