This helps to ensure you receive the objective guidance and recommendations you seek.An emphasis on prudent asset allocationOur investment approach focuses on the importance of asset allocation in diffusing risk (spreading assets over several asset classes that have historically had a low or negative correlation with one another).We begin by creating an asset allocation based on your unique needs, goals, plans, and risk tolerance.Next, a tailored investment strategy is developed to execute the initial allocation.Finally, we continually monitor your portfolio, making adjustments as necessary to maintain the correct balance over time. We meet with you regularly to keep you abreast of changes in the marketplace and investment climate, and to determine if any changes in your needs or lifestyle may warrant further adjustments to help keep you on track toward your goals.Balance and tax efficiency are critical to working towards your objectives over timeMaintaining the appropriate balance for your portfolio over time can get tricky. In a tax qualified account, like a 401(k) or IRA, this work is simplified. Outside of qualified plan holdings, however, our clients typically have both taxable and tax qualified accounts. This is where the re-balancing process becomes critical as we seek to maintain portfolio balance and tax efficiency.At Wealth Advisors of Tampa Bay, our clients benefit from our hands-on experience in executing tax efficient asset allocation and rebalancing strategies. We employ a unique rebalancing method which includes the daily monitoring of portfolio assets with tolerance bands built around specific asset allocation targets. This provides you with the knowledge and confidence that your portfolio is not only continually monitored, but rebalanced on a regular basis, helping to ensure continual alignment with your specific objectives. Of course, no strategy, including asset allocation and rebalancing, can guarantee against loss of value or guarantee performance.
