At Sapphire, ongoing engagement is essential to our disciplined advisory process. We begin by working with you to develop a shared understanding of your financial situation and aspirations. Anticipated cash flows, tax considerations, long-term objectives, and your willingness and ability to take risk are assessed over time. We memorialize important facts that inform an agreed-upon investment strategy and manage your portfolio as a fiduciary – acting in your best interest.
