INVESTMENT ADVICE

For all investors, there is a need for diversification and managing the balance between liquid and non-liquid assets. Our clients generally have a high net worth with an interest in investing in real estate and private equity alongside their stock market assets. They generally are comfortable with their financial plan and are seeking return on investment and like the idea of selecting One Advisor to help with all components of their investment world – not just the portion in the Stock Markets.

For the liquid side of your portfolio, our approach is different from blind investing in “asset allocation models” or “asset strategies”. We will seek specific stock opportunities based upon value with a price target and time horizon in mind and identify low cost Funds and ETFs as a means of diversification and balancing risk in addition to stocks.

1031 EXCHANGES

Investors with existing real estate holdings that they are looking to sell may want to consider a 1031 Exchange as a means for deferring taxes. We help investors identify income producing properties or new developments and assist all the way through the 1031 Exchange process. We have led several investors through 1031 Exchange transactions, and we handle the ongoing management of real estate assets so investors don’t have to.
