SpectrumCFO™ is a web-based wealth management system that serves as a holistic view of your entire financial structure — from accounts, we manage to accounts held at other institutions. Through account aggregation, SpectrumCFO™ collects, tracks, and reports your financial activities to effectively and efficiently manage your financial life bringing accountability to you on demand. Your portal functions as a virtual vault storing essential documents such as estate documents, tax returns, deeds, and insurance policies for easy access 24 hours a day. You can monitor your spending in real-time, create spending targets to measure activity, receive alerts to monitor changes in your financial position that would impact your course of action. We are alerted immediately when a threshold, such as an asset allocation shift or change in net worth, exceeds a tolerance level so that we can be proactive in the management of your wealth.

Our investment philosophy is shaped by a team focus that allows us to take a unique approach based on a disciplined process and not predictions and speculation. As a fiduciary, we step outside the traditional pressures of wire house advisors to provide our clients with unbiased investment advice. Read more about our Investment Advisory process here.
We devote the time to fully understand you, your goals, your circumstances and your hopes and dreams before we begin to develop your plan. We establish a personal index, a benchmark to measure your accomplishments. We create a roadmap that helps guide your progression and effectively address important financial factors that may impact you. In today's complex financial world, the roadmap brings accountability and focus to your plan.
We analyze sources of income and expenses. Through SpectrumCFO™, we aggregate outside accounts (checking, savings, credit cards, 401(k) plans, among others) to streamline the process of tracking financial activity. You can create categories of income and expenses all personalized for you, develop budgets, receive alerts, and monitor how your actual activities compare to projections.
In tax planning, timing is everything. Detailed cash flow planning, combined with a thorough analysis of current and proposed tax laws, allow us to create scenarios that compare the benefit of various strategies and the impact on your wealth. Our roots in accounting and tax strategy are evident in the proactive nature of our advice.
Most people think of risk management in terms of their investment decisions. However, risk management is far broader. Individuals and families are exposed to risk in many areas of their lives beyond investments such as premature death, medical issues, complicated family situations, and more. We conduct a gap analysis of risk exposures and methods to minimize the impact to you and your family.
We identify effective strategies for distributing assets in ways consistent with family values while minimizing the impact of gift and estate taxes.
Social capital represents that part of your wealth returned to society philanthropy or taxation. Our clients prefer their social capital to be directed toward causes that are important to them through philanthropic endeavors. We devise plans to do so through an array of charitable approaches ranging from making annual gifts, creating sophisticated trust structures to establishing a donor-advised fund, or even a family foundation.
We coordinate the activities of your various specialty advisors, including access to information needed to perform their functions. Our goal is to assure each advisor is well informed to perform their functions for your benefit.
Through your website, you can store copies of essential documents from tax returns, wills, and trusts to birth certificates and passports, for easy access.
Life transitions such as divorce, loss of a spouse, career change, a large inheritance, or a sale of business require care and specialized planning. We are effective in helping those in transition develop a plan for successful long-term outcomes.
