As independent Investment advisors offering fee-based financial planning in the Winston Salem and Lake Norman areas of North Carolina, we present clients as broad and unbiased perspective as possible. Planners are free to consider a full range of options for their clients because we have no allegiance to a major wirehouse, insurance company or bank and their products.
We can develop a comprehensive plan or focus on a particular area of concern-our services are tailored to your personal circumstance. It is our belief that informed and knowledgeable clients are satisfied ones, so we make sharing our expertise and explaining our recommendations a priority.
Please feel free to Contact Us for a complimentary consultation to get to know us or to get a second opinion. We want you to experience our brand of personal service and attention first hand.
We specialize in helping successful clients select individual portfolio managers with compatible objectives, attitude and risk tolerance levels. Actively managed assets are monitored daily, something the most dedicated investor cannot do on his own. We offer managers that use a more proactive management style in order to better preserve and protect your assets by adjusting to market conditions. We believe independent managers, like independent financial advisors, offer clients a broad unbiased prospective regardless of the size of your account.
