Asset Management/Investment Services

 

In order to meet your individual financial goals, DFG financial advisors view the financial planning and asset management services as a fully integrated process. It is our ability to coordinate all aspects of financial planning that we believe makes us uniquely capable to meet your financial and life goals. 

Based on your individual risk profile, DFG investment professionals will construct a customized asset allocation and portfolio strategy to reflect your individual investment objectives, risk profile and liquidity needs. We can construct portfolios ranging from very conservative, principal protection portfolios to very aggressive, growth oriented portfolios. Through either a brokerage or advisory platform, we work with you to create an appropriate investment portfolio based upon your risk/return profile by utilizing both traditional and alternative investment products and third party money managers. Some of the strategies and products that are available to us as independent investment advisors include:

 

  • Traditional Investment Products
    • Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds, third party money managers*
      • Investment Strategies include:
        • Short and Intermediate Term Fixed Income
        • Core Fixed Income
        • International Fixed Income
        • Large/Mid/Small Cap U.S. Equity
        • International Equity

 

  • Alternative Investment Products*
    • Often provide low-correlated investment options that enhance the risk/return profile of a traditional portfolio
  • Other Services
    • Coordination of employer sponsored retirement accounts (401(k)) with individual assets

    • Stock Option and Tax Management Strategies

 

 

After we mutually agree on appropriate investment choices, we continually monitor the performance of our clients’ portfolios as well any changes in investment style or philosophy. We will update you when changes need to be made to the portfolio and rely on our periodic discussions with you to update your risk profile and address any lifestyle changes that need to be reflected in your investment portfolio.

Fixed income investments are subject to various risks including changes in interest rates, credit quality, inflation risk, market valuations, prepayments, corporate events, tax ramifications and other factors.  Sector investing may involve a greater degree of risk than investments with broader diversifications.  Investors shoud be aware that there are risks inherent in all investments, such as fluctuations in investment principal.  With any investment vehicle, past performance is not a guarantee of future results.  Investment strategies, including asset allocation, do not assure a profit and cannot protect against losses in a declining market.  Material discussed herewith is meant for general illustration and/or informational purposes only, please note that individual situations can vary.  Therefore, the information should only be relied upon when coordinated with individual professional advice.
