John Thomas Financial Private Wealth Advisors take the time to listen to their clients and understand how they accumulate their wealth: success in a self-built business, inherited money, a concentrate stock holding in a public company. John Thomas Financial then structures recommendations based on each client’s particular financial goals, including spending needs, multigenerational estate planning goals, and future philanthropic aspirations. We believe successful asset management should be part of the overall estate, business and financial planning and should not be operated as stand alone silo. Thus, all analyses and recommendations are based upon John Thomas Financial Private Wealth Advisor’s understanding of each client’s objectives.
John Thomas Financial takes an institutional approach to individual investing, encouraging clients to approach their portfolio asset allocation similar to a college endowment or charitable foundation. All asset allocations start with the basic percentage allotments to case, stocks and bonds in relation to a given time horizon. Diversification into traditional and nontraditional investments within each sector is then added to help increase the return expectation while also effectively helping to reduce the downside risk of the overall portfolio. Emphasizing asset classes and investment vehicles that have little or no correlations in a market cycle helps to increase success.
John Thomas Financial has no proprietary products, and utilizes an open architecture through consulting firms that assist in the initial and ongoing due diligence of money managers and hedge funds. John Thomas Financial implements portfolios through some of the best money managers and private firms available, and uses passive investments where appropriate.
Often overlooked, asset ownership is an important aspect of investment planning. For example, tax-efficient investments can possibly be moved to tax-deferred accounts, and assets targeted for future philanthropy or future generations will have different allocations than those assets required for current spending or current generation. These types of investment details could yield far more in returns than market timing or investment selection.
Performance and Portfolio Monitoring
Specific goals and monetary aspirations can change over time. Likewise, the cycles of the global markets and the structure of the world economy ebb and flow through the years. John Thomas Financial meets regularly with clients to constantly update the recommended asset allocation, rebalance the overall portfolio or replace the investment vehicle or manager. Any modification is made based on a clear understanding of each client’s situation and future goals, and up-to-date economic and investment vehicle analyses.
