We serve our clients in a manner other investment firms avoid. First and foremost, we operate under the “fiduciary” standard. Very simply, we are required by law to provide investment advice and guidance with our clients “best interests” first. In contrast, all the major Wall Street firms, the big banks and insurance companies all hide behind “suitability”, the Swiss cheese of ethical standards. Ask yourself, why would anyone want to work with an advisor NOT putting their client’s best interests first?
The McBride Group is committed to the highest level of client contact and communication. Since we started the firm we have written every client a letter, every month, updating them on the performance of their portfolio the previous month and year-to-date. Each letter also includes our firm’s observations and comments on the performance of the stock and bond markets the previous month. Last year, in an effort to “go green”, we offered clients the option of receiving their monthly update via email. To our surprise, over 80% of our clients chose the email option.
