The Fundamental Principles that Guide Us, Make Us Different.
Compass Financial Management was founded on four basic principles of business:
- Investment Independence
- A Policy of Full Disclosure
- Personal Integrity
- Added Value
We have no obligations to, or restrictions from, any bank, brokerage or insurance firm. Our complete investment independence allows our services and client recommendations to always be objective. We create and customize investments for each client with each client’s specific goals in mind. Our sole focus is to advise and support our clients in achieving their financial goals.
Our policy of full disclosure means there will be no fee surprises. Our services, fees and processes are fully disclosed to our clients. Management fees are based on the value of a client’s assets that are under our management. We believe this approach provides incentives to control costs, while helping our clients’ achieve their investment goals.
We believe personal integrity is the cornerstone of any relationship. We promise honest, straight answers for you. As both a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA), and in accordance with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), we take our moral, legal and fiduciary obligation to act in the best interest of our clients at all times very seriously. This tenet is closely related to our belief in the value of investment independence and full disclosure, and further reinforces our commitment to provide honest solutions for clients.
Our team is directly and deeply involved with each client. We believe that we can provide the best value only by being personally involved with our clients. This hands-on approach allows us to integrate our expertise with our client’s objectives and the appropriate opportunities. Together we can create the optimal investment plan. We do not offer “cookie cutter” investment strategies. We do not mass market our services. We only partner with new clients when we believe we can align and achieve the desired results. Our goal is to continually earn your trust and confidence, as we develop a successful, long-term relationship.
