Investment Management

Our personal customized approach to money management incorporates efficiencies introduced by recent technology. We believe most investors benefit from a core global market portfolio. This can be potentially achieved through the use of ETFs dynamically modeled for a specific risk tolerance and investment objective. These portfolios are designed to reduce the two stresses on a portfolio within our control – taxes and internal expenses. Supplemental portfolios are designed to increase yield and/or create stability, as strategies requiring more customization.

 

Wealth portfolios are managed by SFG’s Investment Advisory Team, led by Jeremy Olen, CFA®, and overseen by Jane Scarbrough, CFP®, Founder and Managing Principal. Our team meets monthly to review market conditions and global economic trends and analyze how these factors impact portfolio construction. Collectively, we bring broad industry experience to the investment process, an approach which has contributed to the success of our dynamic platform.
