WHAT IS WEALTH MANAGEMENT?
A DIFFERENT KIND OF RELATIONSHIP
An investment advisory relationship is generally a long-term professional relationship built on trust, personalized investment advice and ongoing oversight of your invested assets. This form of investment management requires adhering to a "fiduciary standard of care," meaning that our team has a legal duty to provide investment advice that is in your best interests.
Your advisor will communicate with you on an ongoing basis, through market updates and quarterly reviews, because a wealth management relationship is a continuous process. We’ll work with you to help you devise and execute investment strategies that take your goals, need for liquidity, risk tolerance, and time horizon into account.
FEE-BASED INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT & INVESTMENT ADVICE
Another key difference in a wealth management relationship is the consolidated, steady pricing. There is one total client fee, typically a percentage of assets under management, which includes trading charges associated with buying and selling securities of the investments selected. The fee is deducted on a scheduled basis from the account value and investments selected.
