Our dedication to client satisfaction is unique in the industry, as we charge low fees with payment of that fee contingent on the client’s complete satisfaction.

All companies chosen for investment are in exceptional financial condition with little debt, significant cash reserves and excess annual cash flow. These companies also are benefiting, and will benefit, from an identifiable major trend, providing added reinforcement of prospects for future growth. When investing for income, we utilize investment grade bonds, exchange-traded funds, preferreds and other instruments we feel offer a reasonable return consistent with the risk.
