Sugden Wealth Management

Our Firm

Our Story

Our intent was to establish a wealth management firm that emphasized the building of lasting relationships with clients. The foundation for this relationship is based on fiduciary best practices, transparency, integrity, and comprehensive wealth management.

Our research is independent and we are not compensated for selling investment products. This fee-only compensation model allows us to offer a broad range of solutions without conflicts of interest. As a fiduciary, our fee structure is fully disclosed.

Rather than focusing exclusively on investment management and portfolio performance, goal-based wealth management is oriented around the investor. Investment strategies are specifically designed to achieve a client’s lifelong financial goals. Performance is also measured by the client’s progress toward achieving their goals.

We are held to a Fiduciary Standard at all times. This means that we will only act on our clients’ behalf – in good faith and always in their best interests. This is the guiding principle in our code of conduct.

“…when providing personalized investment advice about securities to retail customers (and such other customers as the Commission may by rule provide), shall be to act in the best interest of the customer without regard to the financial or other interest of the broker, dealer, or investment adviser providing the advice.”

-Investment Advisers Act of 1940, – Section 211 (g)(1)

Our Journey

We set out to establish a wealth management firm with a primary focus on cultivating lasting relationships with our clients. The foundation of these relationships rests on fiduciary best practices, transparency, integrity, and comprehensive wealth management.

Our research remains unbiased, and we refrain from receiving compensation for selling investment products. Following the fee-only compensation model empowers us to provide a wide array of solutions without conflicts of interest. As fiduciaries, we are committed to fully disclosing our fee structure.

Consistently, we uphold the Fiduciary Standard, ensuring that our actions exclusively serve the best interests of our clients and are conducted in good faith. This principle forms the guiding cornerstone of our code of conduct.

Our Investment Philosophy

Our philosophy is rooted in Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) and is combined with a consultative approach to establish a wealth management process where individual client goals guide every recommendation. This disciplined portfolio construction approach integrates expected returns, risk measures, correlations, and other statistical indicators of asset classes.

We acknowledge that short-term fluctuations in asset class risks and returns may occur, but we believe they are fundamentally driven by economic factors and follow predictable long-term relationship patterns.

Our core belief is that investors are rewarded for time in the market, not timing the market. Instead of attempting to pick stocks or time the market, our focus is on achieving long-term, risk-adjusted returns.
