Fiduciary

As a Fiduciary our main responsibility is to manage a prudent investment process. Legally, as a Fiduciary our first responsiblity is to our clients. We are organized around the Investment Advisors Act of 1940. We formailze our investment approach with our client's by creating goals and objectives. As fiduciaries we indentify an investment horizon, an acceptable level of risk and an expected return. We then implement the plan using specific investments. Fiduciaries must periodically review portfolios and compare performance against appropriate benchmarks. Through proper execution of the previous steps we are confident in our ability to act as a fiduciary for our clients.

Investment Management Fee based on AUM

Fee-only financial planners are registered investment advisors with a fiduciary responsibility to act in their clients’ best interest. Schorpp Capital Management charges a fee based on the amount of assets we manage for a client. We do not get any commissions for the investments that we manage for our clients.  We have fewer inherent conflicts of interest, and provide comprehensive advice. When appropriate for our clients we do sell insurance and annuity products. We do make it clear when we receive a commission for these insurance products.

Independent

1 Get advice based on what’s best for you. Whether it’s your retirement planning, tax situation, estate planning or assets at multiple places, it’s fundamentally important that your advisor truly understand you, your goals and your situation. Many independent registered investment advisors (RIAs) are in a position to do that and pride themselves on strong personal interaction with their clients and dedication to their needs. They believe that their independence is key to offering investment advice based on what’s best for their clients.

2 Understand exactly what you’re paying for. Independent RIAs typically charge a fee based on a percentage of total assets managed. This fee structure may have advantages. It’s simple and easy to understand, helping to avoid surprises. It also gives your advisor an incentive to grow your assets—when you succeed, your advisor succeeds.

3 Get advice for your complex needs. Many independent RIAs provide services that address a variety of complex investment needs that often arise when you accumulate significant wealth, such as assisting you with the sale of a business, complicated tax situations, trusts and intergenerational issues. Some advisors are specialists in certain investment strategies. Others can assist you with comprehensive services, such as estate planning or borrowing. Given the rich diversity of specialization throughout the industry, no matter how complex your individual needs, you will likely find an independent RIA who can provide advice that’s right for you.

4 Enjoy a different kind of relationship. The goal of an RIA is to help find solutions that are closely aligned with client needs and objectives, and many independent RIAs enjoy a deep, personal relationship with their clients. This often takes regular, ongoing interactions. And because many independent RIAs are entrepreneurial business owners, the buck stops with them, so to speak, and they frequently have a strong sense of personal accountability to their clients.

5 Know where your money is held. RIAs typically use institutional custodians—generally large brokerage firms or banks—to hold and safeguard their clients’ stocks, mutual funds and other assets. These custodians also provide important infrastructure services such as executing trades and preparing monthly brokerage statements for clients. This helps an RIA focus on understanding your needs and providing the best advice possible.
