My Approach

While most of my accounts are fee-based through advisory services, I also serve clients who prefer to remain transactional through brokerage services.  I pride myself on employing a simple and easy-to-understand fee structure.  You have a right to know exactly what you are paying and how it is computed.

Where I reasonably believe it to be in your best interest, I recommend:

Advisory Services
For more details, including costs, please refer to Stifel’s Form ADV Part 2A, Wrap Disclosure Brochure, available on our website here, for detailed information about the fees and expenses that clients incur in connection with Stifel’s investment advisory programs and to Stifel’s Form CRS, available here.

Non-Advisory Products (Brokerage Services)
For more details, including costs, please refer to Stifel’s Relationship Guide available here and to Stifel’s Form CRS, available here.

Goals Based
I believe that your goals should drive your investments – not the other way around.  That’s why I employ a goals-based investment process that helps my clients measure their progress toward specific objectives.  I am confident that you will find value in my disciplined process, strategic approach, detailed planning methods, and the broad range of resources I bring to the relationship.

Focused on Risk
I employ risk management strategies that focus on my clients’ goals and needs.  I diversify risk through proper asset allocation, asset management, and investment planning tailored to you.

Periodic Review With You
During our annual meetings, I will conduct a deep dive of your investment performance over the past year.

This includes a thorough review of your portfolio, returns, what worked and what didn’t, and an outlook for the coming year.  We will also determine if anything has changed in your situation or goals.  If so, I will ask additional questions to determine if any changes need to be made.

These meetings are conducted in person whenever possible.  I am also available for phone calls for annual meetings if that is more convenient and will e-mail you materials for the review.

Diversification and asset allocation do not ensure a profit or protect against loss.
