Complimentary Portfolio Analysis

How our Financial GPS can help you.

When you ask your financial advisor why your investments aren’t doing well, aren’t you really just asking for a second opinion from the same person that put you where you are?

We offer a complimentary real second opinion. We use our financial GPS to analyze your portfolio and investments. This combination of software and common sense will give you some insight about why you aren’t getting the returns you feel you should. We take your portfolio through three stages:

Investment Risk Review

We find that investors expose themselves to unnecessary risk. While young investors can weather exposure to risk over long periods of time, older investors need to avoid risk. How much of your portfolio should be in the “risk” category in order to gain hoped for higher returns? We stress investments that provide a long track record of reliable dividends and demonstrated safety.

Portfolio Stress Test

We test your portfolio through simulated conditions like the market corrections of 2001 and 2008 and periods of higher inflation. Keep in mind that the Fed has kept interest rates at an artificially low level for years which has tended to support a high market. Common sense tells us that higher inflation and market corrections are coming, are you prepared?
