Portfolio Management LPL Financial’s wrap account platform; called Strategic Asset management (SAM), is the primary account structure used with our clients. Our reason for selecting this platform is simple; it allows us to hold a wide range of investment products in one account, including mutual funds, ETF’s, stocks, bonds, closed end funds and real estate investment trusts. We carefully screen each of these product areas to come up with a product mix and asset allocation that fits the goals and risk tolerance of the client we are working with.We charge a flat fee per year that is based on the amount of assets we are managing for the client. The all inclusive fee encompasses asset management, client meetings, custody of the funds, financial plans and reporting.We chose the fee based platform because it aligns our interests with that of the client. As our clients’ accounts rise in value so too does our income stream. Our clients can be assured that we are always doing our best to grow their portfolio and only making changes in an effort to improve investment performance, not to generate a commission.
