About My Practice
The investment advice and services provided by Monterey Bay Asset Management to its clients vary, depending on each client’s needs, objectives and circumstances. Factors affecting the tailoring of client portfolios include client investment horizon, risk tolerance, tax sensitivity, estate or trust issues, concentrated stock positions, and other constraints.
Our services typically include the design and implementation of a custom asset allocation, portfolio monitoring, regular reporting, performance analysis and periodic rebalancing. Investment management is provided on a discretionary basis, however all trades are discussed with clients in advance before they are placed, unless the client requests otherwise.
Monterey Bay Asset Management, LLC is a Registered Investment Advisor, providing investment management advice to individuals, professionals, and business owners. The company is dedicated to providing customized solutions and objective advice to its clients.
Our compensation is on a strict fee-only basis – we do not receive sales commissions, and have no monetary incentive to select certain products for clients over others. This helps us avoid conflicts of interest, and enables us to provide advice and make decisions in the best interests of our clients.
