CFG's Approach to Investment Placement & Oversight

We place investments for you according to your needs, values, goals and desires and make sure that they're performing as needed.

Optimizing Your Investments

A Balanced and Complementary Approach

We believe that an optimal investment strategy is imperative for any financial plan. History has proven that interest-generating investments, such as cash and bonds, have relative stability of principal. However, they provide little opportunity for real long-term growth due to their susceptibility to interest rates and inflation.

On the other hand, equity investments have clearly enjoyed significantly higher expected returns historically, but are vulnerable to more severe volatility risk in the markets.

Having the right investment placement & oversight strategy in place allows you to answer questions like:

  • Am I taking too much or too little risk with my investments?
  • Are my assets divided into different categories to address different goals and different time horizons?
  • Are my investments generating unnecessary taxes?
  • Are my accounts being rebalanced so I stay within my risk parameters?
  • Are my investments consistent with my values?

How your personal portfolio is structured depends on a number of variables that we incorporate into your customized design. These variables include your current stage in the financial life cycle, your risk tolerance, and investment time horizons.
