“NO HIGHER GOAL THAN YOUR PEACE OF MIND”
WHAT WE STAND FOR IS SIMPLE. YOU
Welcome to Ascendant Capital Management, a full-service, independent Registered Investment Advisory firm (RIA). We have no parent company affiliation, nor do we have any pressure to sell proprietary products or services not aligned with your interests. Many financial advisors carry the ‘broker-dealer’ designation, which brandishes a disclaimer from the SEC that their recommendations need only comply with the standard of suitability – one not always consistent with your best interest. As an RIA, Ascendant adheres to the much higher fiduciary standard, which imposes a duty of care and loyalty and means that recommendations “must be in the best interest of the client and come before the interests of the advisor.
We start by focusing on your long-term goals and priorities along with your current situation and challenges. We then develop and implement a strategy to help you achieve your objectives, while keeping you informed and involved along the way. We accomplish this through the following stages:
We listen to your story. During this stage, we assess your situation as well as your long-term goals and concerns. We talk about investing philosophy, approach and process. We make sure we are on the same page concerning expectations and goals, as we start on our journey together.
We then develop a game plan that aligns your goals with a strategy to get there. This may involve determining a suitable investment portfolio, measures to minimize risk as well as the establishment of a plan that will serve as a financial “roadmap” to achieving mid and long-term goals.
After a strategy is implemented, we advise and coach you all along the way. We communicate with you regularly to ensure peace of mind that you are on a sound path forward. Should circumstances or your situation change, we are there for you to provide guidance and advice at every turn.
As we move forward, we attend to the progress of your financial situation. Throughout the entire process, we are available for you. We keep you informed, rebalance your investment portfolio, and make adjustments where needed to ensure your plan is up to date and properly managed.
