I am an ardent believer in putting client interests above all else, and act as an advocate for my clients.
The vast majority of my business is in wrap accounts. I have a small amount of business in trail variable annuities, REITs, and trail commission mutual funds.
Approximately 15% of my revenue is in qualified plans where I am adviser of record, and these plans compensate me on a consultant fee model through the broker-dealer RIA. I take on 3(21) or 3(38) fiduciary status in these plans.
I am a firm believer in active management, and utilized Point and Figure Technical Analysis as the investment management risk strategy for client portfolios since 2001.
Client portfolios are charted by hand each day, and holdings are changed as market risk dictates.
Clients get a weekly commentary each week with my thoughts - nothing is ghost-written - on the stock market and the economy. This way, they know what I THINK.
