Whether you manage your own investments or pay someone to manage them for you, it makes sense to get a second opinion, an investment analysis.
There are many reasons for an investment analysis. Maybe your long-term investment strategy was “invest and forget” or maybe an investment advisor or portfolio manager forgot you. Perhaps you have investments with multiple managers and want to know how they fit together. Many investors have never determined their tolerance for investment risk and compared it to their portfolio. Others have no idea what they own.
An investment analysis can:
- Determine which stocks, bonds, etc. you own, no matter how they are owned (directly or through a mutual fund, ETF, variable annuity, etc.)
- Examine the portfolio’s allocation, diversification and the overlap among those investments
- Establish your tolerance for risk and volatility
- Compare risk tolerance to the portfolio
- Discuss investments expenses and management fees
- Provide Morningstar reviews of individual investments (when available)
- Recommend changes in overall allocations for portfolio optimization.
There is no charge or obligation for our first meeting. During the meeting, we review your financial situation, discuss whether an investment analysis makes sense and agree on the cost. You owe nothing if you decide not to use our services.
Please email or call (301-377-9407) if you are interested.
Keep in mind that:
- An investment analysis is not a financial plan. It will not examine whether your investments are or will be sufficient to meet any financial goal. We can provide that type of plan but at a greater cost.
- There is no guarantee that the recommendations made will prevent a loss or provide a higher rate of future return. There is no guarantee or warranty that services offered will result in profit.
- Past performance is no guarantee of future performance. All investments involve the risk of loss.
- The investment analysis discusses existing investments but does not recommend new investments.
- The cost may be higher if you have more than 10 investment accounts or more than 70 individual investments. We would discuss this at the first meeting, before you commit.
- The analysis contains statements and statistics obtained from sources believed to be reliable but not guaranteed as to accuracy or completeness. References to any specific securities do not constitute an offer to buy or sell securities. There may be delays, omissions, or inaccuracies in the Information.
- Neither Arthur Stein Financial, LLC nor its information providers shall have any liability, contingent or otherwise for the accuracy, completeness, timeliness or correct sequencing of the information or for any decisions made or actions taken by you in reliance upon the information.
