As financial advisors to affluent individuals, we've found it effective to use an open and straightforward approach that's sensitive to concerns about risk. We pride ourselves on understanding in detail what you value most in life—your family, business or legacy—and providing a disciplined approach to wealth management to help you maintain your lifestyle and pursue your financial goals.
Meet our team
We're a diverse team of collectively disciplined professionals, each with different backgrounds.
We're a diverse team of collectively disciplined professionals, each with different backgrounds. We offer clients a well-rounded perspective on many key decisions that accompany the responsibilities of wealth.
We believe our disciplined wealth management process comes close to gauging an individual's true attitude toward risk. Helping you pursue what's important to you, as well as helping you with more common financial issues—such as how to fund a child's education or your own retirement—is what we are passionate about.
We follow a three-pronged approach designed to preserve your wealth.
You can delegate to us investment management responsibilities for your portfolios, meaning that Paul Pepperman and Chip Humphries have discretion over certain investment decisions surrounding your investment strategy. Once we have confirmed your goals and life priorities, as well as identified your portfolio investment objective, time horizon, risk factor and liquidity needs, we will recommend targeted asset allocations for your portfolios to help meet your specific investment objectives. Granting us authority allows our team to respond to market changes, price volatility and global events with the ability to make adjustments, if needed, to help your portfolio stay on track to meet your goals.
