That's why the foundation of our approach starts with asking better questions. Great questions transcend the experience by generating better conversations, providing a deeper, more meaningful understanding of client objectives.
Our goal is to offer clients straightforward answers and uncomplicated solutions that lead to smarter, more informed decisions. We believe in empowering clients. We believe clients derive value, and are simply happier, when they can get what they want, when they want it.
The key to delivering on this vision is correctly aligning the resources, both smart people and relevant technologies, to what clients value - much as if we were our client's private family office.
It's our vision to reshape the investment and wealth advisory experience, making it truly centered on each client's specific objectives; aligning our people, processes and some amazing technology toward this goal.
We are focused on doing what our clients would do, if they had the time, skills and expertise.
We bring incredible energy, analytical thinking and creative problem-solving to each and every client, driven by exceptional questions, and our desire to see our clients succeed.
As individuals we have amassed years of experience, spanning investment management, wealth advisory and client experience.
As a team we strive to be greater than the sum of our parts, because we ourselves have found that great partners are invaluable to strategic and disciplined decision-making, and the attainment of success.
It was once said, "the customer is the most important part of the production line." We couldn't agree more. It's around clients' needs and goals that Perigon's services and value revolves.
Wealth advisory is multidisciplinary, with the greatest value resulting from a coordinated and engaging approach to delivering comprehensive advice and investment mangement. Our "family office" architecture helps to do just that - tying together the interrelated disciplines and being able to work effectively with a client's other advisors - while our client platform and portal, help us to engage with clients in a more elegant and more meaningful way.
Wealth is the result of one's relationship with money; how it's earned, accumulated, spent and saved. A client's financial graph depicts these relationships, and similarly, it should guide how their assets are invested. We help clients to better understand their financial relationships in order to inform and coordinate our advice.
Advice isn't about what's offered, but what is taken - a sense of confidence, of trust, of achievement. It's the sum of clarity, relevance and timeliness. We understand true advice is personal and simple to comprehend because it makes sense for a client's particular circumstances - only then is it truly actionable.
Being able to always answer the question, "how am I doing," isn't difficult, but it's not easy either. Emphasizing ease of use and simplicity of design, we leverage some amazing technologies to filter and distill the essence of a client's investments and broader financial graph, aligned to their unique objectives.
We believe that if better decisions are made simpler to make, more people, will make more of them. Achieving simplicity in wealth management is anything but simple, however, from the initial "conversation," to imparting actionable advice and seamless execution, this is our goal, on behalf of our clients.
From the initial conversation, and evolving with a client's circumstances, we want to understand who our clients are, and what's important to them, building up to a complete, holistic client view - well beyond investable assets.
We are committed to openness and transparency, seeing both as tantamount to a client's conviction and confidence in the consistency of our ongoing counsel and advice.
Collaboration is integral to an amazing client experience, one built upon trust and confidence, but also a unique process for each client. Collaboration guides what we do on our clients' behalf, enabling our always being able to answer the question, "how am I doing?"
From a client's "financial graph," to our advice and reporting, we constantly strive to ensure clients have access to useful and usable information that is well structured, engaging and meaningful to them.
We feel it's important to have conviction behind one's actions. To this end, we regularly share our views with clients on a wide range of topics. In doing this, our goal isn't to inform clients what we think, but how we think. In an industry that seems to thrive on fostering complexity and one-upsmanship, we take great efforts to communicate with clarity, respect, and at "eye-level."
