Investment Management

As an independently owned and operated hybrid RIA our independent structure provides increased access to sophisticated wealth management strategies. Our in-house portfolio management capabilities combined with experience developed over many years serving as fiduciary advisors for individuals, foundations, and institutions enables us to provide a customized portfolio. These include separately managed account programs and strategies, alternative investments, and other strategies appropriate for working towards your sophisticated investment needs.

An emphasis on prudent asset allocation

Our 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 appropriate 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 time

Maintaining 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.

As advisors at Wealth Advisors of Tampa Bay, our clients can 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.

Rebalancing a portfolio may cause investors to incur tax liabilities and/or transaction costs and does not assure a profit or protect against a loss.
