Toys "R" Us filed for bankruptcy last week. This was amazing to me. I remember going there 15 years ago and finding the parking lot jam-packed, the lines at the checkout lanes long with people trying to go through with two or more shopping carts full of goodies.

Portfolio Management Services: This service provides clients with initial design, ongoing review, supervision, and monitoring of their investment portfolios. Your risk tolerance, goals, tax position, time horizon and cash flows are all considered in constructing a written investment policy statement (IPS) specifically designed for your individual situation. We believe that efficient tax management is a central consideration in portfolio design. This is a critical factor in determining how much spendable money you can withdraw from your portfolio and how sustainable your spending can be.

We prefer to use low cost, low turnover institutional class funds from Dimensional Fund Advisors, among others, that are designed to maximize your returns and minimize your costs.
Employer Retirement Plan Services: Retirement plan sponsors, who are often the business owner, generally offer retirement plans as an employee benefit and a tax efficient way for the business owner to save for their own retirement. What the business owner often doesn’t realize is that a plan sponsor is a named fiduciary under ERISA. As a fiduciary, the owner has a duty to plan participants, their employees, to act solely in their best interests and ensure that all costs are reasonable. We can guide you through this process and benchmark your plan against other similar plans to ensure you have an efficient, cost effective plan while minimizing your fiduciary liability.
