What We Believe

Through our core values of trust, transparency and professionalism, we are committed to enriching the lives of our clients by delivering superior investment services. We put our clients at the heart of our business, developing and maintaining long-standing relationships based on our values. We respect diversity, value generosity and maintain a fiduciary responsibility to all investors.

“The CrossPoint Financial Way”

Professional wealth planning for individuals, families, corporations, institutions and foundations.

We are research-based and cognizant of the risk of human behavior and psychology that can interfere with intelligent investment decisions.

We strive to add significant value to returns after fees and taxes.  To that end, we believe in fair and visible costs. Under our Managed program, our fees are independent of product and asset class, therefore creating an unbiased structure for trades to be executed. There are no trade commissions or embedded costs under this program, so trading activity itself doesn’t pay us. We are therefore fully aligned with our client’s objectives – a “go anywhere” model that strives to increase value.

We are value investors at heart, striving to find the reason why we own an investment and what the catalyst will be for growth in value. We look for good companies that are growing and are priced at reasonable valuations. We believe these elements will deliver the best results over time; results we can understand and make sense of. This allows us to stay invested with confidence, despite volatility, over the long run.

We balance this with recognizing that active management can be expensive and introduces greater risk of manager under-performance. As such we use low-cost passive indexing as core holdings.  Overall, we believe that long term holdings in quality businesses removes a lot of the risk to investing.
