Investment Approach

We design and maintain your investment portfolio to balance your needs for principal protection, income, and growth.

We strive to ensure investments will be tax efficient, low cost, and properly diversified to reduce risk and maximize return.

Using a disciplined and systematic investment process over multiple market cycles has lead us to favor investments from Vanguard and Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA), as well as mortgage backed investments, commonly called private Trust Deeds. 

We choose to work with investment firms that believe that avoiding unnecessary trading, management, sales, and tax costs is critical to preserving and growing your portfolio.

Our fees are simple and transparent. 

We ordinarily charge 1% to 0.50% of the value of your investment portfolio, or a flat quarterly fee depending on your circumstances.

Generally, we work well with clients who have or expect to have at least $3,000,000 in investments; however, we make exceptions for early to mid-career professionals or children of existing clients.
