The Key Benefits of Working with an Independent Investment Advisor

Clients of Independent registered investment advisers enjoy notable protections.

  • Understand exactly what you are paying for. We charge a fee based on a percentage of total assets managed. This fee structure is simple, transparent and easy to understand.

  • Know where your money is held. Our clients’ assets are held at independent qualified third-party institutions. Our custodians have strong balance sheets, and their primary business is servicing client assets rather than trading for their own accounts. Clients have real time online access to accounts and transactions.

  • Separation of advisory, custody and fund management functions. This separation improves transparency and accountability, limits the potential for conflicts of interest, and provides for multiple independent reviews and oversight of accounts.

  • Full regulatory protections. The customer protection rule ensures that your assets are held in customer accounts that are segregated from the brokerage firm’s assets. Client accounts are covered by the Securities Investor Protection Corporation and private excess insurance above those limits.
