Draw from a wide range of taxable and tax-free investments for you, including:

  • Mutual funds
  • Unit Investment Trusts (UIT)
  • Separately Managed Accounts (SMAs)
  • Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)
  • Stocks and corporate bonds
  • Certificates of deposit
  • U.S. Government securities
  • Municipal bonds
  • Corporate notes and bonds
  • Annuities

Mutual funds allow any investor to own shares in a pool of bonds, stocks, and other investments. Unit Investment Trusts (UITs) are typically sold by brokers and they pay dividends on a fixed, unmanaged portfolio of stocks and bonds to investors for a specific period of time. Another alternative to mutual funds are Separately Managed Accounts (SMAs). SMAs require a larger minimum investment, but they are more customizable than mutual funds. Finally, for a lower-cost option that's still tax-efficient, you might consider Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), which provide the same valuation as a mutual funds, but they're tradable throughout a day like a stock.

Certificates of Deposit (CDs) are FDIC-backed, very low risk, and provide higher rates of return than a savings account. These are time deposits, meaning you can't withdraw your funds before the agreed-upon term of the CD without financial penalty. The longer the length of maturity, the more favorable the interest. We also offer stock and corporate bond trade services for our clients.

Taxable and tax-exempt, municipal bonds are debt securities issued by state and local governments to fund public projects. These low-risk government securities are the hallmark of a well-rounded asset allocation. Ask one of our advisors about savings bonds, treasury bills and notes to offset moderate or high-risk offerings.

Tax-deferred annuities offer any investor a regular income stream over time. Choose from fixed, variable, immediate and deferred annuities to meet your current and future financial needs.
