INVESTMENT SERVICES -- Gregory believes that individuals and families can benefit from the sophistication that typically characterizes institutional portfolio management. Gregory’s approach to managing client assets is rooted in the following core strengths: an understanding of the client’s goals, risk tolerance and time horizon, use of proper asset allocation, and ongoing monitoring of the investments and re-balancing the portfolio when necessary.
Asset allocation does not assure or guarantee better performance and cannot eliminate the risk of investment losses.
