Investment Management

Investment management is central to most wealth plans. NexTier’s approach combines a thorough knowledge of our clients’ situation with a dynamic and interactive portfolio management process.

Asset Allocation - Your portfolio manager will recommend a customized asset allocation strategy based on your goals and personal situation. We manage your assets accordingly, with an eye toward enhancing returns or reducing risk through tactical adjustments. *Asset allocation does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. Tactical allocation may involve more frequent buying and selling of assets and will tend to generate higher transaction cost. Investors should consider the tax consequences of moving positions more frequently.

Portfolio Analysis and Design - Working with existing investments or starting anew, our portfolio management team will construct a well-diversified portfolio consistent with your risk profile. We’ll be mindful of the intricacies of your estate plans while appropriately aligning your assets in the most tax-advantageous vehicles. *There is no guarantee that a diversified portfolio will enhance overall returns or outperform a non-diversified portfolio. Diversification does not protect against market risk.

Tax-Efficient Strategies - Your portfolio manager will discuss a variety of potential methods of enhancing after-tax returns. He may suggest the use of tax-efficient investments, tax-advantaged accounts (e.g. IRA’s) and tax-loss harvesting, working collaboratively with your tax advisor, if needed. 

Investment Selection - NexTier’s objective investment selection process seeks to find the best investments and managers across the globe. Both qualitative and quantitative factors are considered.

Investment Classes - As an independent financial advisor, NexTier is not bound by proprietary investment products, enabling your portfolio manager to freely utilize a variety of investment vehicles. These may include individual stocks and bonds, mutual funds, separately managed accounts, international investments, and alternative investments. Your personal tax situation and preferences play an important role in investment selection.
