Investments

US and International Equity Strategies

Rising Dividend Focus

  • Seek total return with significant and growing contribution from dividends

  • Emphasis on stocks that demonstrate long- term growth potential based on fundamental factors, and equities evaluated on criteria such as valuation, profitability, earnings growth, and balance sheet strength

  • Resulting strategies typically have a track record of rising dividends that average higher than the S&P 500 and are expected to grow their dividend 

 

Fixed Income

The fixed income market is diverse, spanning a broad range of securities. Some of the more common types include:

  • U.S. Treasuries: issued by the federal government, the only entity permitted to print money, and thus considered the safest type of bond.

  • Money market instruments: issued by corporations or government entities and considered relatively low risk because maturities are usually very short.

  • Investment-grade corporate bonds: issued by corporations deemed by the major credit rating agencies to be in good financial condition and likely to meet payment obligations.

  • High yield (junk) bonds: issued by corporations considered to be at higher risk of default (i.e., missing interest or principal payments) due to financial difficulties.

  • Mortgage- and asset-backed securities: issued by a government agency or financial institution; the coupon payments represent cash flows from a pool of loans, such as mortgages, auto loans, and credit cards.

  • International bonds: issued by governments or corporations outside of the U.S.

  • Tax-free municipal bonds: issued by state or local governments; interest payments are exempt from federal and, in some cases, state taxes. Some income may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax.

 

Alternatives & Specialized Investments

  • We utilize liquid non-commission alternative strategies.

  • Alternative Strategies are often none market correlated and used for diversification and hedging

  • Alternative investments include but are not limited to private equity, hedge funds, managed futures, real estate, commodities and derivatives contracts.

Custom Portfolio Design / Asset Allocation

Three Step Process

Estate & Financial Planning

In the old days, a financial plan was a large, 3-ring binder notebook or written document listing all the details about your finances and what you should do about each of those details. Most of those plans were circular-filed, sometimes on receipt.  

 

Today AdviceWorks utilizes industry leading planning technology that allows our clients to visually connect to understand goals and recommendations.  Our technology allows clients to interact with their plan in real time online, help set and prioritize goals, all while communicating directly with their advisor.  

 

A truly interactive customizable planning experience helps clients implement and fully benefit from the ongoing AdviceWorks planning process.  

Tax Deferral Planning

A Specialized trust structure has the ability to generate substantially more money over the long run than a direct and taxed sale. It is also superior to a direct installment sale as the concerns of a defaulting buyer are eliminated.

Specialized trust structures offer an alternative to a 1031 Exchange “Starker exchange” to help our clients defer capital gains tax liability without the time restrictions, identification requirements, and complications of a 1031ex.  Owners benefit form a 100% liquid sales event that is tax deferred, and can be invested back into real estate per-tax and / or diversified into other investments.
