Custom Portfolio Management

Custom Portfolio Management

It might surprise you that Vanguard estimates for some people, using the right kind of advisor can add 3% in net returns each year; much more than a typical financial advisor may charge to help you. Read Vanguard's full report here to see how a combination of behavioral coaching, asset location, proper rebalancing, trading, and withdrawals can substantially alter your performance over time. Unfortunately, it's not as easy as just buying cheap index funds and putting things on autopilot.

At Dentist Advisors, once your dashboard is built, and we have a complete and accurate view of your entire financial picture, we'll make adjustments to your current strategy, or put your strategy in motion for the first time. We'll build on what you already have—especially if it's already well positioned. We'll be cautious as we analyze the tax impact of any changes, and start to position your portfolio with cost-effective investments and a highly disciplined approach that captures value across countries, companies, currencies, and real estate. Your tax rate, liquidity,  cash flow, personality profile, time frames, and risk tolerance will all be factored into your investment strategy. As markets go through ups and downs, we’ll be your voice of reason to help you navigate adjustments and stay consistent when it's difficult to do so.

Financial Planning Dashboard

Financial Planning Dashboard

You and your advisor will collaborate using real-time information from your personal dashboard. You’ll be able to view all your account activity, assets, and debts in one place. The dashboard gathers data from your various financial institutions in real time, which means you can see your net worth on demand. Instead of relying on hunches and assumptions, you and your advisor can make decisions much faster, and with greater precision. Whether you're deciding to pay cash or finance a new purchase, or looking to invest in real estate, you and your advisor can decide how to facilitate the right strategy faster than ever before.

Our Pricing Philosophy

At Dentist Advisors, we’ve structured our pricing to give every dentist access to holistic planning. We understand that some of you are just getting started, and many of you have postponed your savings plan in order to pay down debt or reinvest in your practice. So instead of requiring a minimum investment balance, we allow you to offset the cost of planning with a monthly fee until your investment fee is enough to cover our services.

This approach takes the emphasis away from what you’ve already saved, and puts the focus on your potential. As your investment balance goes up, a greater portion of your service charge will be covered by your investments, and your monthly fee will be reduced.

Our pricing model requires that your investments are managed by Dentist Advisors for a few main reasons:

  1. Our pricing model is predicated on your investment fees as the primary source of payment.
  2. We want our incentives to be aligned with the growth of your investments.
  3. As the advisor who knows your asset mix, debt profile, lifestyle requirements, behavioral tendencies, and the trajectory of your practice, we are in the best position to design an investment portfolio that aligns with your risk requirements and timelines for growth.
  4. Because we understand your personal and practice cash flow, we can manage the tax impact of any changes to your investment plan. This becomes important when you withdraw or reallocate your funds for any reason. The related tax consequences can significantly impact overall returns; especially for dentists who accumulate large balances of after-tax investments. A less informed party could have a more difficult time ensuring that your taxes are managed properly.

Our pricing model ultimately reflects our desire to deliver a comprehensive and long term planning experience for dentists at every career phase.
