Yes. We are an Independent Registered Investment Advisor, which means that we are not biased by any in-house or proprietary products. Therefore, we are free to work objectively with the widest variety of investments.

Not one firm can be right for everybody and we don’t expect every prospective client to be a perfect fit for us. Our ideal clients tend to have 3 things in common:

  1. They have been financially successful.
  2. They are well educated.
  3. They are looking to delegate the day-to-day financial planning and portfolio management to a qualified team of trusted advisors.

Our clients tell us that what sets us apart from other firms in our field is:

  • Our ability to simplify complex financial decisions.
  • Our proactive approach to financial planning and portfolio management.
  • Our genuine interest in educating our clients and making sure they understand what we are doing for them and why.

Surevest does not actually take custody of any of our client’s funds and are prohibited from doing so. Our preferred custodian for our client’s assets is TD Ameritrade Institutional. TD Ameritrade provides our clients with low transactions costs, no annual account fees, and gives us access to a variety of institutional class investments that are not available to retail investors.

Yes. All of our client relationships begin with at least one complimentary consultation that usually lasts one to two hours. At this meeting you will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about how we work with clients. We will both be able to determine if we think we are a good fit for each other. If the first meeting goes well, then we typically set up a second meeting to address more detailed questions and provide you a detailed analysis of your current investment portfolio along with recommendations on how to improve your financial situation.
No. We prefer to keep clients by providing outstanding service, rather than binding contracts. Therefore, clients are free to terminate our services at any time.
You will receive a statement every month as well as a quarterly performance report. Other reports (asset allocation, tax reports, etc.) can be provided any time by request.
