Investment Management Services

Philosophy

Marquis Wealth Management Group offers personalized financial advisory services. We carefully listen to the client, assess their individual needs, develop an understanding of their goals, and then suggest a customized course of action for their consideration.

We are an independent investment adviser and offer our services in a non-commission environment.

Client Responsibilities

In addition to the annual investment advisory fee to Marquis, it is the client's responsibility to pay transaction or brokerage costs, wire transfer fees, and other fees for their Schwab and Fidelity account(s). A separate schedule of fees is available upon request. We also ask that you provide all cost basis information. If you prefer, Marquis will research this information for you on an hourly rate basis.

Custody of Accounts

We recommend the brokerage and custodial services of Fidelity Investments and/or Charles Schwab and Company, Inc. We believe that these two firms represent excellent choices in terms of competitive, discounted transaction costs, client reporting, access to no-load mutual funds, trade execution, research, and technical support.

Investment Selection

Based on the needs of the client we will construct a customized asset allocation and investment recommendations. We specialize in the purchase of no-load mutual funds with exceptional track records and experienced managers. We also offer some clients, subject to certain account minimums, access to institutional quality separately managed accounts. Through our available research we can make additional recommendations for the purchase of high quality individual stocks or bonds.

Finally, private investment opportunities (limited partnerships, local banks, private real estate investments, land trusts, etc.) are made available to our clients as they arise. Most important in this process is that each client receives a personalized set of investment recommendations, tailored to their individual investment objectives and goals.
