When a new client who had just sold a business for a substantial amount of money decided to work with Johnny Moore, a financial advisor with Navigation Financial Group to manage the proceeds, Moore turned to the wealth management resources available to him from Securities America’s parent company, Ladenburg Thalmann.
Moore first contacted Premier Trust and was referred to an attorney who could help simplify the corporate structures holding the money. Moore then reached out to Ladenburg Thalmann Asset Management (LTAM) to assist with third-party money management.
“I educated myself and the client on LTAM’s philosophy and process for selecting managers, and it came down to sharing a view on the risk management process. They don’t look for the biggest manager with the most. They look for the right boutique manager who will play more of a role in the process.”
LTAM provided Moore an investment policy statement template that he adapted to the client’s defined target return range, risk level and future income draw. It also developed customized portfolios to meet those requirements and provided performance reporting that allowed the client to view the monthly performance of each individual manager as well as the overall portfolio.
Impressed with the process, the client placed his entire $25 million with Moore and LTAM.
“The best estate planning attorney, tax attorney and CPA in Amarillo were involved in the process,” Moore said. “They now see I have the ability to bring very high-end solutions to the table.”
Resources and strategic networks are vital to effective wealth management, allowing for professional collaboration with top industry experts and the ability to outsource non-core-competency activities.
Securities America, through its parent company Ladenburg Thalmann, offers the Wealth Management Advantage - a comprehensive suite of wealth management tools, services and resources.
