Our SEAL [Strategic Envoy Advisory Liaison] team will transition your clients to our broker dealer/custodian. We will import your database information so the client history is maintained.
We work with individuals [working and retired], families, small business owners and business benefit programs. We provided comprehensive financial planning and investment advisory services. We are dually registered in a brokerage capacity as well as registered with the SEC as our own independent RIA.
Our business generates the majority of our revenue (70%) derived from fee based assets under management and additional income generated from brokerage, annuities, insurance and 529 plans. We are active money managers utilizing asset allocation to determine what best fits the client's needs and risk tolerance. We use all financial instruments: ETF'S, stocks, bonds, mutual funds etc. We do not utilize third party vendors or money managers.
We focus on investments utilizing both fundamental and technical analysis (we have our own proprietary technical analysis process titled: Growth Protection Strategy (GPS) which is copyrighted and trademarked) to make our portfolio decisions. We conduct frequent reviews with clients to make certain that we are meeting their goals and objectives.
We have extensive experience in financial planning, estate planning, retirement income planning, investment management and insurance. The firm was founded in 1982 in Boston and relocated to Fairfield County in 1992. We joined LPL Financial in 1994 .

We have a written Business Continuity Succession Plan in place. We maintain current with what is going on with continuity and succession planning in our industry.

Our historical client retention rate is 95% +. Our compliance record is exemplary; there has never been a complaint filed against the firm.
We know that to achieve a successful business transition plan three "wins" must be achieved: (1) a win for the clients; (2) a win for the seller; and (3) a win for buyer. Due to our professional depth, experience and knowledge, we believe firmly that we can achieve those three important goals with the appropriate selling firm and that their clients would experience a seamless transition.
