INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY Since 1985, Barbara has been a pioneer and leader within the financial industry. In 1990, she was one of the first advisers to convert her practice to a fee-based asset management platform, which is considered a no-conflict approach. Our investment philosophy stresses diversification and asset allocation. To reduce risk and increase the chance that clients won`t outlive their money, we recommend diversifying portfolios among different classes of investments in a proven and disciplined approach. Since we believe in buying and holding quality investments for the long term, we shun get-rich-quick schemes, market timing, or using risky investments like penny stocks or commodities. We build, manage and protect your wealth over time. FREE TO OFFER MANY DIVERSE PROGRAMS Independence is our greatest advantage over many financial professionals. Not tied to one provider or proprietary products, we are free to develop the most suitable investment program using an array of company`s offerings. As a fee-based firm, we derive our profits directly from the growth of our clients' investment portfolios. It`s in our best interest to do what serves you best. We are permanently vested in our relationships and work hard to sustain your trust. OUR CLIENTS ARE OUR TOP PRIORITY Clients come first at our firm.
