Building, Preserving, and Growing Your Wealth.
One of the most important things we do is preventing our clients from making financial mistakes.
What do we mean by mistakes?
The average non-professional investor buys at the wrong time, sells at the wrong time, and gets caught up in the emotional aspects of investing their hard-earned money. The result is disastrous to their long-term financial future. According to research, investors who go it alone without the help of an advisor underperform the market (S&P 500) by an average of 6.18%.* That kind of underperformance can be financially devastating over the course of a lifetime.
There are never any guarantees in this business, but with our help, we can try to make up the 6.18% gap between the average investor and the market. Over time and with the power of compounding, the growth you should see will eclipse the amount you pay in advisory fees.
You may recall some of these real-life examples of poor investment choices:
