We understand that your financial life is critical to making the rest of your life possible. Our focus at the Broughton Group is to maximize your valuable resources of time and money to allow you to focus on your life’s passions. We do this through: 1. Portfolio management2. Client service 3. PlanningPortfolio Management: We manage portfolios to protect and grow the long-term purchasing power of our clients’ assets. We are in the unique position of being one of nine financial advisory groups at Merrill Lynch that has an audited investment performance track record that document the results we have achieved for our clients. In addition, we’ve aligned our interests with our clients as each of the advisors on our team is invested in the same portfolios alongside our clients. As active portfolio managers, our investment methodology has three foundational tenets. First, we are value investors. We believe that purchasing investments at a discount to their intrinsic value increases the probability of a successful outcome. Second, we are an all-asset, all-opportunity dynamic manager. Meaning, instead of rebalancing portfolios to a predetermined static asset allocation, we constantly evaluate investment opportunities across all asset classes (not just stocks and bonds) to build portfolios that have ever-changing investment exposures. Third, we are accountable to you. The only way to know if we’re achieving our goals is to measure the outcomes. Our results are measured, after cost, and directly compared to appropriate benchmarks; including the most important benchmark, our progress towards helping you achieve your goals.Please e-mail Broughton_Group@ML.com to receive a copy of the reports showing audited investment performance.
Client Service: On a quarterly basis we invite our clients to review their portfolio with us and discuss its performance and events in their lives which may impact their finances. In addition, we strive to help our clients take advantage of the breadth of resources of Merrill Lynch to make their financial lives more organized, efficient, and streamlined. Planning: Our planning processes are designed to help our clients make thoughtful, intentional decisions about their resources and opportunities. We offer clients a comprehensive planning process to help them clearly define and prioritize their goals, identify and mitigate risks, and develop strategies to reach those goals with the resources they have. In addition we help clients answer specific questions about their financial lives - these questions may be about mortgages or other debt, stock options, when they should take Social Security, Roth IRA conversions, stretch IRAs, insurance coverage, estate planning, or any other area relating to decisions about money.
