Key Questions to Ask for a Secure Retirement
Retire with confidence by answering these crucial questions

Investment management is the core of our services. Our team has extensive experience managing money in both up and down markets. We do not experiment with our clients’ money, and we do not invest based on a hunch. Our investment philosophy is based on scientific evidence grounded in logic, not luck.

For most of our clients, the focus is capital preservation followed by growth and income, but each client has different needs and unique circumstances. We analyze all aspects of your current financial situation and desired outcomes prior to constructing a portfolio.

Fonville Wealth Management collaborates with an independent investment committee. The committee focuses on cost-effective, after-tax results, recognizing that the only performance that matters is the kind a client actually receives. We avoid traditional investments offered by stock brokers such as commission-based products, annuities, etc…because they are often expensive and not in the best interest of our clients.

Rather, we focus on searching for and utilizing low-cost, well-diversified, and ‘best-in-class’ investment vehicles for every component of the client’s portfolio.
