Regardless of where you’re going, wouldn’t it be nice to have some guidance along the way to be sure that you are on the right path? Just like traveling, there is more than one way to arrive at your destination. By listening to your story, we gain a better understanding of your dreams and concerns. We interactively provide counsel and information to help you make smart choices ahead which can lead to different possible outcomes. It is your future, and we can provide you with the insight and tools to get you there.
While the investment industry has its own vocabulary, the team at Ethos has a focus on making the concepts and terminology understandable to you. Ask any question, we make no judgements. We only strive to understand your financial picture and to provide thoughtful answers for you.
One of the first questions we hear is, “do I have enough?” That may apply to retirement, education goals, a new home or something else. To answer that, we need to understand what “enough” means to you.
From our experience, the most effective way to answer these questions is to holistically understand your goals and resources available to meet them. While the concept is simple, in practice, it can be quite complex depending on the intricacy of your situation.
At Ethos, you will receive an analysis to see how all the pieces come together. This builds a starting point to evaluate the impacts of possible choices and options. By collectively analyzing these matters with sophisticated software and interpreting it from decades of experience, we can begin to address your question about “enough”. We will demonstrate the various paths that may be ahead based on your choices throughout our relationship.
The Ethos team accesses a broad range of financial solutions to meet your needs through our business partners and affiliations. Your financial plan sets the course in building a portfolio based on your personal journey and attitudes towards risk.
Studies confirm our belief that the overwhelming determinant of investment success is usually not based on a specific stock or fund selection, but how the assets are divided among asset classes (e.g., cash, stock, bonds, etc.). But, how does one make these decisions? Ethos seeks to deliver consistent long-term performance through the assembly of rules-based strategies. This takes the emotion out of investing and results in decisions based on rules rather than relying on hunches and speculation.
It is not a single strategy, but a combination of successful strategies that allow families to build multigenerational wealth. It requires involvement, education, gaining and passing along wisdom and providing the proper controls to assure that possible risks are either avoided or transferred. We can help you navigate this concept to assure that your family will have the best opportunity at success for generations to come.
