WHO WE ARE
The “Great Recession of 2008-2009” was a hard time for many non-profit organizations. They were hit on two fronts. As the economy floundered, the first thing that many consumers cut from their budgets was charitable giving. The other front was their foundations..
Many foundations were invested in a manner where they were chasing past equity returns. This mentality lead them to take losses that they were never able to recover from. Our goal when working with foundations is to understand their yearly needs and build investment strategies that not only generate consistent positive returns but more importantly to do so while taking much less risk and limiting volatility (Draw Downs). This strategy allows foundations to run their day to day operations knowing that regardless of market conditions they can continue to move forward with their cause and know that severe economic conditions will not impact their ability to improve the lives of others.
We also believe it is very important we get involved with our non-profits we work with so we can truly understand their cause and all of their day to day differences from other charitable organizations.
High Net Worth
Our team has over 75 years of experience in the financial industry with various firms including large banks and broker dealers to boutique firms and insurance companies. Each of these environments has positive and negative aspects. We came together collectively to form Quantum Financial Partners with a focus on high net worth individuals and families.
Our conclusion was that it is nearly impossible to provide objective advice and perform in our client’s best interest unless you have complete freedom and open architecture. You will not find this structure at banks, broker dealers, or insurance companies. It can only be achieved through a Registered Investment Advisory Firm. We have the ability to form strategies, partnerships and strategic alliances that cater to the needs of high net worth individuals and families. We are guided only by our relationship with these families and individuals (Not by corporate managers or stock holders) and our goal is to create an experience that is unique within the industry.
We understand that professional athletes have a unique set of needs regarding finances. The time and energy that professional athletes devote to be the best leaves little time to focus on preparing for the future. It is imperative for athletes to work with a team that is focused on not only taking care of them while they are in the game but more importantly preparing to transition to life after the game. While many of their peers are well established in their careers or finishing up post-secondary school, athletes have to push a ”reset” button not only in their careers but more importantly their mentality. We have all heard the horror stories. Athletes need to be surrounded by a team they can trust to lay a foundation that will allow them a seamless transition.
We take a hands on approach in learning about each of our athletes needs for today (when they are playing) and tomorrow (when they are done playing) so we can manage their incredibly life changing personal transition away from their sport.
We feel because the earnings window for professional athletes is so tight, proven alternative strategies become of the highest importance when trying to maximize returns and limit portfolio drawdowns.
At TD Ameritrade Institutional, the security of our client accounts and assets will always be a top priority. To help ensure their safety, TD Ameritrade is a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”), which protects client assets. In addition, we provide supplemental insurance coverage to client accounts through London insurers.
We are pleased to inform you that we recently expanded this coverage, to enhance the protection we offer your clients.
This coverage has increased from $900,000 to $2 million. There have also been changes to the way our supplemental insurance protection is applied. Please see our coverage summary below.
TD Ameritrade is a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”), which protects securities customers of its members up to $500,000 (including $250,000 for claims for cash). Explanatory brochure is available on request at www.sipc.org.
Additionally, TD Ameritrade provides each client $149.5 million worth of protection for securities and $2 million of protection for cash through supplemental coverage provided by London insurers. In the event of a brokerage insolvency, a client may receive amounts due from the trustee in bankruptcy and then SIPC. Supplemental coverage is paid out after the trustee and SIPC payouts and under such coverage each client is limited to a combined return of $152 million from a trustee, SIPC, and London insurers. The TD Ameritrade supplemental coverage has an aggregate limit of $500 million over all customers. This policy provides coverage following brokerage insolvency and does not protect against loss in market value of the securities.
Your clients’ June account statements will include this summary, along with a message alerting them to the change.
Client accounts are also protected by our Asset Protection Guarantee, which is designed to prevent clients from losing cash or securities from their account due to unauthorized activity. Your clients’ September account statements will alert them to the fact that we have updated this Guarantee.
