The Consultative Process

Your relationship with SAM starts with an ad hoc conversation. We ask you about your goals, your risk tolerances financial circumstances, personal and family obligations, cash flow needs and personal issues that impact financial/investment needs. We then help you evaluate them.

We take this personal, in depth approach because each client is different in their lifestyle objective and attitude toward risk. Very often our clients have accumulated or inherited wealth in a concentrated form; as Private Wealth Advisors we look to preserve this wealth and start to diversify it.


Once we have a thorough understanding of your needs, objectives and risk tolerance we analyze the issues and offer solutions. We address appropriate investments, diversification, tax needs, liabilities, income and other aspects. We then impliment customized solutions. We are problem solvers who use asset management as our primary tool.

Within this context, we craft a Wealth Management Plan. Very often this will include a strong wealth preservation bias to provide for retirement, future generations and philanthropy. We delineate this in a separate Investment Policy Statement for each aspect of the overall plan. We view this as an ongoing dynamic process that occurs throughout the year(s).

We implement the plan through the tactical asset allocation of fixed income, equities, cash and alternative investments.
