Do you work with individual stocks?
We do not generally recommend individual stocks in constructing portfolios. We believe research and experience have shown that broadly diversified baskets of equities are the best way to invest. We do however deal with individual stocks on a regular basis in two instances. A client who has an existing position in individual stocks, or who is receiving company stock as compensation needs an appropriate assessment and a strategy for managing their holdings. Hedging existing holdings and effective tax strategies always need to be addressed. We always work with your existing equity holdings to integrate them into your structured portfolio design.
Do you hold my money?
Absolutely not! We are fee only registered investment advisors, not brokers. Your funds and securities are held at a custodian in your name only.
