• Why wasn’t I told sooner about your move to Traverse Private Wealth Group with NWAM, LLC?

    Legally, we were not permitted to do so. While we would have enjoyed the opportunity to share our plans with you in advance, legal considerations and contractual restrictions prevented us from initiating any communication with our clients. As investment professionals, we are committed to respecting and abiding by those covenants, even though it was personally challenging to not have the ability to speak with you beforehand.

  • Why did we choose to be part of the advisor network Northwest Asset Management (NWAM)?

    We can leverage the technology, tools, and standardized processes available through NWAM that so that we can reinvest time where it matters most—with clients like you. By partnering with NWAM, we can deliver operational excellence, maintain a strong culture of compliance, and offer a robust cybersecurity program, which will safeguard the information clients entrust to our guidance.

  • What does fiduciary duty mean?

    A fiduciary is defined as a person or organization that acts on behalf of another person or persons, putting their clients’ interest ahead of their own, with a duty to preserve good faith and trust. As your fiduciary, we are bound both legally and ethically to act in your best interests. But we believe that being a fiduciary is more than a legal requirement – it is a mindset that defines the culture of our group. 

  • Where would my assets be held?

    We are not a custodian and do not physically handle client assets.  We custody assets with Fidelity and Schwab.  This provides our clients with another level of comfort that their assets are secure.
