Investment Process
Upon entrusting MacNicol & Associates with your portfolio, your investments will be managed in accordance with your goals, specifically designed to meet your personal needs. Prior to the investing of securities, investment professionals will thoroughly go through an analysis of a client’s profile including investment objectives, risk tolerance and any income and growth requirements which need to be met. This is determined through an initial financial review and investment questionnaire. A formal investment plan and policy statement is formulated in order to clearly define these goals and objectives. Upon determining the needs of the client, one of four basic investment strategies will be implemented.

 


Client Involvment
The portfolios are monitored by a highly professional senior money manager. We communicate with our clients on an ongoing basis. We encourage clients to meet with us on a regular basis to discuss our current investment policy and re-evaluate their specific investment objectives. In addition, we send out detailed reporting including a summary of assets and all transactions on a quarterly basis. These reports are in addition to the statements sent out by the custodian and serve to cross-reference those statements.
