THEDIFFERENCE Our firm is owned by our Advisors. Our Partnership structure is unique, on purpose. Years ago, many of the best Wall Street firms were partnerships â€” a structure in which the partners also shared ownership in the firm. But things have changed. So many bad decisions were made by Old Wall Street (greed, excessive debt and leverage) leading to the Financial Crisis of 2008 and the biggest government bailout in history. Itâ€™s time to move forward with a new approach through a partnership model that promotes efficiency, creativity and freedom from conflicts.
We strongly support a Partnership model. Our belief is that if the Advisors are significant owners in the firm, then decisions wonâ€™t be made to harm the firm, its clients or the Advisors serving them. In order to effectively serve the complex needs of our clients, we believe it takes a complete team of experts. Thatâ€™s why we employ a Trusts and Estates Attorney, CPAs, a CFA, Retirement Plan Specialists and Insurance Specialists in our Atlanta offices. There are not many issues we cannot address.
