Individual Investment Management

Achieve what matters most with a plan driven by your goals

Investment Philosophy

Comprehensive Investment Strategy

Stacey Braun considers a client’s complete financial situation in order to construct a comprehensive investment strategy. We develop a portfolio for each client based upon their tolerance for risk, investment timeframe, cash flow needs, tax considerations and overall financial goals.

Each portfolio is tailored to the individual in accordance with their financial goals. We do not use model portfolios commonly sold through brokerage firms. Accounts are reviewed daily and changes are made to the accounts periodically based on market dynamics, fund performance, account re-balancing and changes to an individual’s goals. We have access to thousands of mutual funds, equities, exchange-traded funds (ETF’s), government and agency securities, corporate/government/municipal bonds and REIT’s that can be used to build a diversified portfolio.

Our personalized approach allows clients to have direct access to their portfolio manager and a Certified Financial Planner is available to address financial matters that a client may have.

Investments

Comprehensive Investment Strategy

Stacey Braun attempts to achieve strong investment performance through proper diversification of portfolio assets. Through our institutional relationship with Charles Schwab & Company (custodian), we have access to low cost, load-waived and institutional investments, some of which are not available to the general public without commisions. Listed below are some of the fund families and investments that might be used by Stacey Braun in the management of individual accounts.

Our Approach to Asset Management is Beneficial to Our Clients Because:

No Conflict of Interest

We are not paid by any investment company or based upon frequency of trades; we can objectively construct a portfolio that’s appropriate for each client.

No Commissions

No brokerage commissions are paid to, or accepted by, Stacey Braun Associates, Inc.

No Deferred Sales Charge

The investment products we select do not carry deferred sales charges. Investments are liquid and can be sold at any time (a 90-day short–term redemption fee may be applied by some mutual funds).

No Time Commitments

The contract between the client and Stacey Braun can be terminated at any time upon client request.
