A Legal Fiduciary Responsibility
As a Investment Advisory Representative, I have a legal, fiduciary responsibility to work in your best interest. I offer a complete range of investment services, from managing money in the market to more conservative investments. What every client needs is different, and I’m here to help you plan for your future and your children’s future. I act in your best interest every time to the utmost of my ability.
Rusty Donohue, CLU, ChFC is a fiduciary financial advisor. A fiduciary financial advisor is held to the highest legal and ethical duty to represent his clients’ best interests regarding their total asset portfolio management. As a result of this licensing, we are happy to announce that we now offer our clients Assets Under Management opportunities through our partnership with Sound Income Strategies, an SEC Investment Advisory Firm that specializes in building actively managed investment portfolios based on your goals and objectives.
If you have market based investments and are not happy with your performance, or you feel you are paying too much in fees I have announcement just for you; I am happy to announce my partnership with Sound Income Strategies, an SEC Investment Advisory Firm that specializes in building actively managed investment portfolios based on your goals and objectives.
Sound Income Strategies uses asset classes with low internal fees, like ETF’s, Index funds and no-load mutual funds. By attempting to limit the downside through risk management and the ability to move to cash quickly, Sound Income Strategies strives to achieve consistent growth of your money for years to come.
As a fiduciary, we are not paid commissions. Rather we are incentivized to grow your portfolio. The more you grow, the more we grow.
The last decade has shown us that the traditional buy and hold strategy of investing may not be the most efficient due to changing global valuations and extreme price movements. Instead of being constrained to a “fixed mix” of asset classes, Sound Income Strategies employs tactical asset allocation which allows the portfolio manager to change the mix of asset classes, find value across the entire global palette of asset classes and, if needed, move to cash.
We strive to provide access to services that help meet our clients’ financial needs. For services not listed below, we have also built trusted relationships with outside professionals that are experienced in assisting our clients. We may be able to help provide you with…
