  • Custom investment portfolios: We work with you one-on-one to build a portfolio that is right for you. Your portfolio may be taxable or tax-exempt (such as an IRA or a SEP) and consist of:             
    • all stock with an emphasis on growth,

    • all bonds with an emphasis on income and preservation or

    • a mix of both for a balanced approach appropriate for your needs.

  • Tax-efficient: We are always attuned to tax efficiency for your investments and will work closely with your tax advisor to fit your specific circumstances.

Conservative, stable and consistent

  • Our philosophy has remained constant since the firm’s establishment by founder L. Roy Papp. We continue the legacy of Roy’s belief in disciplined investing in long-term growth companies, his integrity and his commitment to providing high-quality service. Investors look to us to preserve and grow the value of their assets, enabling them to sufficiently fund their lifestyles while leaving something for family or charities.  
  • We believe that equities provide a greater long-term return than fixed-income securities do and that the return on equities will exceed inflation, thus maintaining the purchasing power of the assets available for investment. At the core of our investment philosophy is the belief in owning high-quality growth stocks for the long term, purchasing them when prices are attractive. We believe our emphasis on quality has enabled clients to participate in up markets while providing excellent downside protection during periods of market weakness.
  • Fixed-income investing is a defensive strategy, directed toward production of current income (either taxable or tax-exempt, depending upon the nature of the account) and protection of the principal from loss.

Building a long-term relationship with you;
dedicated to your financial well-being and peace of mind

  • A personal portfolio manager: Our relationship begins with the first meeting you have with your personal portfolio manager. Together, you’ll explore your current financial situation, investment goals, lifestyle needs and any special wealth management needs. We understand the full range of financial service alternatives in the marketplace and will help you create an ideal plan for your unique circumstances. 
  • Building wealth and simplifying your finances:

    • You’ll understand what you are investing in and why it was recommended.

    • As a fee-based adviser, we have no conflicts of interest. We do not receive commissions – just one simple asset-based fee.

    • Situations change, so we’ll aim to meet with you at least once a year to review your circumstances and goals. Of course, we welcome the opportunity to meet with you or answer any questions you have by phone at any time. While you will have a personal portfolio manager, other team members will know you and your portfolio in order to be ready to help you as needed.
