Yes. As a fiduciary, it is an investment adviser’s responsibility to provide fair and full disclosure of all material facts and to act solely in the best interest of each of our clients at all times. We have a fiduciary duty to all clients. Our fiduciary responsibility is considered the core underlying principle for our Code of Ethics and the very foundation of our firm.
We specialize in providing financial guidance to individuals and families in Petaluma and surrounding areas during life-changing events such as retirement, inheritance, settlement, and business sales.
Throughout your relationship with Brian and his team, you will experience our O.N.E. Client Commitment™. This commitment provides a framework for making decisions collaboratively and monitoring the outcome of those decisions over time. We are committed to proactively Organizing your financial life, Navigating you through life’s obstacles, and Empowering you to enjoy life confidently.
Our managed accounts have a minimum balance of $1,000,000, and many of our clients entrust us with managing $3-$5 million of their wealth. We're committed to providing exceptional advice and investment management services to a select number of families in our community.
Our responsibility is to be your financial coach and partner – to sit on the same side of the table as you. If you benefit, we benefit. If you have setbacks, so should we. That's why we've structured our firm to be "Fee-Only," which means we don't collect any trading or sales commissions, and we filter out exorbitant and unnecessary costs commonly found in the financial industry. Our fees are simply based on a percentage of the money you entrust us to manage. This ensures that we are fully aligned with your financial goals, and that we have a vested interest in helping you succeed.
No, as an Independent Firm, we decided long ago that our job is to focus all our attention on being the advisor, and our client accounts should be held and protected by a recommended custodian. Considering this, our firm has an arrangement with Charles Schwab & Co, Inc. to custody our Private Client Group client accounts. Through our ongoing due diligence and considering a wide range of factors for the best interest of our clients, we determined that Schwab provides the most advantages when compared to other available providers and their services.
