SUCCESSFUL ASSET MANAGEMENT
Success in securities management is measured by profitability and customer satisfaction. Competition in asset management these days is intense, and positive results are best realized through the efforts of professional and full-time securities’ management.
While some people are successful in managing their own securities programs, they rarely have the skills, experience, or time to achieve maximum results consistent with their needs and objectives.
Most investors who administer their own programs are prone to fall into the trap of the physician or lawyer who treats himself. Emotions can get in the way of rational thought when one’s own finances are involved.
DIVIDENDS AND INTEREST
Dividends and interest income are important considerations, even if a client’s primary needs aren’t high levels of income.
Stocks, for example, which may fall in price, but which have a history of paying dividends, often reach the bottom of a price decline at a point where the current yield of the dividend is near the interest rate paid on standard bank savings accounts.
Further, every dollar of dividend income received reduces a client’s risk in stock ownership. Non-dividend or low-paying dividend stocks, by virtue of that feature, can only generate a return by means of capital gains which may or may not occur.
A suggested minimum opening portfolio value of $350,000 provides a basic guideline, but special circumstances, as determined by the portfolio manager, may dictate making an exception to that guideline. We can provide a consultation and portfolio review regardless of value to help you with your assets at no charge and encourage you to schedule a review.
Decisions about new account minimum balances are made on a case by case basis.
