Investment Advisory Services
Meridian Financial Group, Inc. has a unique, five step approach to investment advisory services. Step one, we conduct financial analysis; identifying financial goals. Our firm follows a strategic investment process beginning with an understanding of our clients’ reasons for investing, their investment time horizons, and their attitude towards risk. The second step is to develop an asset allocation strategy. With the information attained from step one, we develop an asset allocation similar to a road map, plotting the path toward aiding in the achievement of our clients’ financial goals. Step three is the selection of investments to fit in the designed allocation, creating a portfolio. This portfolio may include, but is not limited to, mutual funds, equity traded funds, stocks, bonds, REITs, limited partnerships, business development companies, life insurance, and/or annuities. The fourth step is to monitor performance and risk of the portfolio regularly to assess the process toward meeting our clients’ goals and make any needed refinements. The final step is clear and concise communication with clients to ensure they are kept informed and in control of their plan and portfolio. This process assists in understanding our clients’ goals, risk tolerance, and aids in portfolio development, but no strategy assures success or guarantees against loss.
Meridian Financial Group, Inc. has forged lasting relationships with our clients by providing access to a team of financial professionals who understand the importance of their goals and needs. These relationships can only be formed by dedicating ourselves to providing the utmost in professional services, gaining the respect and trust of our clients; a relationship that is clearly recognized as unmistakably special by our clients.
