Our Mission

We believe in data backed investment portfolios that will serve our clients’ objectives without unnecessary sales loads and trading fees.

“For many years, professionals managed risk in their portfolios by simply allocating money to stocks, bonds, and cash. The more stock in your portfolio, the more risk. Although still relevant, this is not necessarily the case today. There are more ways to manage risk than simple allocations to stocks and bonds. Our approach, blended with cutting edge technology, gives our clients the tools and information necessary to succeed.”

— Jim MacDonald, CFP / Partner
