Investment Philosophy

The core of Sarah’s investment philosophy is based on holistic goal-based planning and management. She is results-driven and a firm believer she cannot lead her clients to success without understanding all aspects of their financial landscape.

Sarah utilizes fundamental and technical analysis to weigh the risk of each portfolio as it relates to her clients investment objectives and risk tolerance.
