Private Client Wealth Management
PRS specializes in working with accredited investors (those with net worths above $1 million) with Private Client Wealth Management Services that set the standard in the industry for best-in-class technology, services, and investment opportunities.
Comprehensive Wealth Management Services
During your initial meeting(s) with your wealth advisor, you’ll get to know each other at a deeper level. Your wealth advisor will help you identify what to improve, develop or change as it relates to your wealth plan. By reviewing your completed confidential client profile, your wealth advisor will be able to determine your risk tolerance and your long-term financial goals and objectives will be identified to set the foundation of your wealth plan.
Expected Returns and Plan Development
Your wealth advisor will conduct a portfolio stress test against over 50 potential risks to your portfolio and goals. Our model measures the impact of these scenarios on your investments using history as a guide, giving you a clearer picture of the risks to your portfolio. We start by asking questions like, "What happens if the dollar crashes, the economy falls back into recession, or oil prices skyrocket?" - over 50 scenarios in all. Your wealth advisor also reviews your current investments and reviews your current statements. Our goal is to ensure your financial goals and objectives are in line with your level of comfort in taking on risk so your wealth advisor can design a personalized financial roadmap plan that meets your needs.
Customized Strategy Design and Selection:
Education is the key to transparency and we want to help you understand our investment process and strategies because they directly impact your life and your ability to accomplish your goals. We apply the following "12 Pearl's of Wisdom" planning strategies to your portfolio as we design your ideal investment portfolio:
- Retirement Projection Strategy--Are you confident that you will be able to keep your current standard of living for the next 30+ years net after inflation and taxes, and do you know what your minimum annual Family Index Rate of Return (FIROR) must be?
- Tax Reduction Strategy--Has anyone sat down with you in the past two years and said: “Here are the ways you can potentially cut your taxes?”
- Fee Reduction Strategy--Do you know what your total fees are--including loads, money manager fees, hidden turnover fees, tax-inefficiency fees, and advisory fees--and that you’ve minimized your total fees to match your objectives?
- Asset Allocation Strategy--Have you had an asset allocation strategy analysis completed on your overall portfolio to maximize your potential returns, minimize risk, and diversify effectively in Passive, Active, Tactical & Alternative investments?
- Money Manager Strategy--Are you certain that all of your money managers in your portfolio have been above-average by utilizing a quarterly tracking system to benchmark experience, performance, risk, fees, and overall rankings?
- Stress Testing Strategy--Have you regularly stress tested your portfolio to protect against losses from 70+ different future potential threats, such as recessions, rising interest rates, volatile oil prices, de-globalization, record debts, etc.?
- Retirement Distribution Strategy--Have you structured your retirement income most tax-efficiently in this low-interest environment, and are you withdrawing the ideal amount so you don’t sacrifice your future standard of living?
- High Dividend Strategy--Have you optimized your portfolio to earn the highest dividends possible while also decreasing volatility and overall risk?
- Social Security Strategy--With over 20,000 Social Security retirement income strategy choices, are you confident you’re maximizing the return on your initial investment of 12.4% of your lifelong paychecks?
- 401(k) Optimization Strategy--Have you optimized your existing 401(k) plan and retirement plan assets with your own fiduciary shield?
- Estate Planning Strategy--Have you optimized your portfolio around your estate legacy goals, established Multi-Generation IRA’s, and designated proper ownership and beneficiary designations?

Once you have a thorough understanding of these 8 planning strategies, we’ll make recommendations on investment strategy allocations and implement your personalized plan so you can live your life by design, not by default.
