What We Do

What We Do

We listen to clients as we formulate their portfolio so that it can be designed to meet each client’s unique long-term goals and objectives. We know how hard you have worked to accumulate the money that we are entrusted to manage. We also know that fees of all types (either seen on the surface or buried within the underlying investment) can have a negative effect on long-term results. Therefore, we clearly disclose our fees and we strive to make investments in funds that have the lowest fees in the industry. 

  • As independent, fee-only advisors we are objective in our advice and the management of clients' investments.
  • We are a family owned and operated, boutique firm specializing in closed-end mutual funds which provide regular cash flow and solid long-term total returns.
  • Team members are service minded; we spend a great deal of time giving back to the Durango community through various charitable and service organizations.

If you have any questions, would like to learn more about our Firm or to schedule an appointment to get a “second opinion” about your investment portfolio, please contact James at (970) 403-1234.

San Juan Basin Health Corona Virus Guidance

Words from Colorado's Governor: Jared Polis.

(On July 16, 2020 Governor Polis issued a mandatory mask order.)

Information about Colorado's mask order

(7/21/2020) Across the nation and in our state, COVID cases are trending upwards, and the biggest driver of this increase is young people aged 20 to 29, who are not taking proper precautions when socializing. Many young people in our state are doing their part to wear masks, but without following recommended social distancing guidelines, we all risk accelerating transmissions of the virus and failing to contain its spread.

 Ultimately, we need to get back to basics. Practically speaking, this means:

  • Teleworking if you can and continuing to work from home.
  • If you go camping, go with just your household -- or if you socialize with friends, stay 6 feet apart and keep your mask on.
  • Limiting groups to under 10 people, and staying outside to socialize.
  • Taking fewer trips to the grocery store or ordering your groceries online, especially if you are in a high risk category.

 And it means calling your local public health agency, if you work in an essential business and your employer has not implemented proper social distancing measures in the workplace.

The actions that all Coloradans take in the coming days and weeks will have a significant impact on plans for the fall. We are in a precarious moment and personal responsibility is key. Only by acting in moderation and continuing to practice social distancing will we see less tests coming back positive and create more opportunities to get our economy back on track.

 With all of us working together, we can achieve the outcome we all desire: a way to live with this virus with minimal disruptions to our Colorado way of life.
