A Focus on Wealth Management
The Dolgoff Group begins by using a thorough discovery process to identify the goals, objectives and risk considerations that are important to you. These requirements often extend beyond investment management to include lending, trust and estate planning, tax impacts and philanthropic strategies.
We work in concert with your outside advisors, accountants, and legal team to ensure that we are providing the most objective advice based on the entirety of your estate. On the portfolio management side, we aim to work within each client's parameters to help create uncorrelated returns and risk-adjusted alpha.
Support for Liquidity of Concentrated Positions
As a core competency, our team has deep capabilities to help diversify concentrated equity positions—whether you seek to systematically sell stock in the open market through customized plans or to exit existing investments. We know that experience matters to clients who seek corporate service support, and our background in regulatory issues, restrictions and administrative rules sets us apart from other Advisors. We provide an educated perspective and appropriate direction to navigate these complex scenarios.
For those clients facing IPOs and other one-time liquidity events, often the biggest area of concern is the tax consequences of financial decisions. By participating in pre- and post-transaction wealth planning, we evaluate timing and impacts to help minimize tax implications. Our team truly understands the life-changing effects of these transactions, and we ensure all critical factors are carefully studied.
Active Portfolio ManagementA primary belief of our team is that investors should receive a portion of their investment returns in the form of cash flows, namely dividends. Doing so provides the leverage to invest in other opportunities, reinvest in current positions or have a source of income in retirement.
Further, we look for investments that not only provide current cash flow, but also have a high likelihood of increasing over time, providing a hedge against inflation or additional amplification of returns through reinvestment. To construct non-correlated, diversified portfolios around this central tenet, we lean heavily on J.P. Morgan's due diligence team to offer best-in-class strategies that include separately managed accounts, fixed income vehicles, mutual funds and brokerage services.
