Your choices are of the utmost importance. We listen to what you have to say and develop a personalized investment strategy that works for you.


Investment Management

There are three phases of investment management::

1.  Pre-Investment Preparation -“The first step in our journey together involves walking you through a series of questions designed to help us determine what you want, when you want it, and what you are willing to go through to get there. Answering these questions is vital to designing a personal plan suited to your objectives. The agreed upon investment strategy we put in place is geared to your goals and your comfort zone. We strongly believe that key to a successful relationship is making sure you understand what you own and why.

Pre-investment preparation allows us to:

  • Determine your risk tolerance
  • Discover and defining your investment goals
  • Educate you on ways to achieve your goals
  • Develop an investment strategy

Our expertise at Vahanian & Associates allows us to offer insights into how different investment strategies, asset classes, and investment vehicles can be combined to complement your needs. We will point out the benefits and drawbacks of each potential strategy. This analysis and give-and-take process are some of the things our clients value most, and is a large part of what distinguishes our firm.

2.  Investment Implementation - We are a fee based investment advisory firm. Implementation of investment strategies can occur either on a fee-only basis, a combination of fee and commission, or commission only. Additional financial planning services are also provided on an hourly basis. As a consumer of financial services, you will undoubtedly want to know what your options are, and which one might make the most sense for your situation. This is a subject that we can review before making any final decisions. What is important here, is that you have a choice.
