Investment management strategies designed to help grow your wealth

Many of us might invest to mitigate inflation and taxes with tax-deferred accounts.

If we do not earn a reasonable rate of return on our retirement savings, we can lose buying power. For this reason, we must understand that, at this point in our lives, investments should only be used to support strategies within the retirement plan. Money that will be used to supplement our retirement income in five years should be invested differently than money that will be used in 15 years. And money in tax-deferred accounts, after-tax accounts, and Roth accounts each have unique uses and should be invested accordingly.

At Fresno Financial Advisors, we employ a hands-on investment management process designed to help maximize each client’s returns while minimizing risk.

Our investment management services are highly customized, based on your return objectives, risk adversity, and tax status of your accounts. We firmly believe that investment returns should be measured for consistency and that added protection from market losses is crucial to long-term performance.

At Fresno Financial Advisors, our investment philosophy is well-grounded and evidence-based. We adhere to a disciplined approach and focus on tax efficiency, low-cost investing, diversified holdings, and asset allocation.

WealthGuard™ is a complete portfolio monitoring system. Designed by determining the amount of downside risk a client is willing to tolerate, WealthGuard™ is added to client accounts to help protect from downside risk. WealthGuard™ is not a stop loss strategy. When the account value in the portfolio hits the targeted downside value, an alert is sent to the client, advisor, and money manager. The money manager trades the account as indicated on the WealthGuard™ agreement.

There is no guarantee the exact WealthGuard™ value will be captured, or assets will be traded or liquidated the same day the WealthGuard™ value is reached due to time of day and/or market restrictions. WealthGuard™ is not responsible for any tax implications that may result due to the liquidation or trading of the holdings. FormulaFolio Investments is not responsible for any errors or omissions in the information used to prepare your WealthGuard™ percentages.

WealthGuard™ does not make any representations or warranties, whether expressed or implied, regarding investing in securities or investment products. WealthGuard™ makes no warranties to the legality or suitability of any investment product.
