We approach each new relationship with a consultative process. This allows us to have an open dialogue in which we learn about every client's values and goals while working with them to tailor a plan to help achieve them.
Our detailed planning process begins with our Discovery Meeting. This meeting allows us to completely understand each client's personal and financial situation, objectives, comfort level with risk and time horizon for achieving goals. This deep understanding allows us to:
Based on the information gathered at our Discovery Meeting, we tailor an investment plan for each client that is broadly diversified and based on established facts and real evidence. Better yet, we take the time to help you understand the logic and evidence behind our investment approach so you have confidence in your financial future.
An investment plan is just one part of the big picture. We recognize that no client's financial life is one-dimensional. Using our deep expertise in wealth enhancement, tax management, risk mitigation and other areas, we coordinate all the elements of your financial life in order to help you reach your most important goals and achieve peace of mind.
A major key to your financial success is having a team of financial experts working together with Grecu Capital Management as your personal CFO. We work alongside your existing professionals such as CPAs, estate attorneys and insurance advisors to deliver the best comprehensive solutions and help you achieve your goals.
Successful investment management starts with discipline. It is the cornerstone of your financial future. We manage your assets as if they were our own. We work to achieve our clients goals through appropriate growth and income, but also have a finite focus on risk and all of the competing forces that can impact a portfolio over time. Through extensive research, broad global diversification, and focused risk management, our evidence-based investment strategy helps clients stick with their plan and achieve their long-term goals.
Unlike traditional index strategies, Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA) uses data-driven models pioneered by Nobel laureates and leading financial economists to beat traditional benchmarks like the S&P 500. In fact, over the past 20 years, almost 90% of DFA's stock and bond strategies have topped their benchmarks, and DFA's stock funds have outperformed 70% of peers.
The secret? Applying insights from financial science - not guesswork or hunches. For more than 30 years, DFA has pursued the dimensions of higher expected returns through advanced portfolio design, management and trading. DFA's investment approach is grounded in economic theory and backed by decades of empirical data. DFA's enduring philosophy, deep working relationships with the academic community and unique view of the markets have helped clients pursue higher expected returns without having to worry about the latest headlines.
Our clients can have peace of mind knowing that a transparent process backed by decades of research is powering every decision.
Financing retirement has become increasingly complex and can cause unnecessary anxiety, especially for those who plan to access their retirement assets in the next several years. An array of investment options, combined with fluctuating interest and inflation rates and other variables, make it difficult to determine how much you will need, where you should invest, and to whom to turn for assistance.
Our consultative process and advanced planning will identify where you are now, where you'd like to be down the road and identify the gaps. We will then design customized solutions to bridge those gaps so that your retirement years are truly golden.
