Tailored client experience.
In order to devote the superb level of time and attention your wealth deserves, we limit the number of high-net-worth clients our advisors serve. Not only can you look forward to personalized service, but you also determine the level and means of communication and reporting, including face-to-face and digital options.
Regardless of whether we interact once a week, once a quarter, or once a year, you can count on a prompt, helpful response. In fact, we’re here to answer any and all financial questions you may have—whether they relate to your portfolio or otherwise. In the rare instances where we can’t draw on our own knowledge and experience to provide you with the appropriate answer, we will personally seek out a subject matter expert who can.
Sanderson Wealth Management is an SEC Registered Investment Advisor with a fiduciary standard of care for all the things we do. Of course, making decisions in your best interest isn’t just our legal responsibility, it’s the only way we know how to do business.
FIDUCIARY VS. SUITABILITY STANDARD
While it may be assumed that all investment advisors act in a fiduciary capacity, the fact is the industry is heavily conflicted. Upwards of 90% of investment advisors are able to place their interest ahead of the client’s (such as selling their own products), if the advice is deemed suitable (source: Cerulli U.S. RIA Industry Report, 2017). Sanderson is proud to be part of the 11.9% of RIA-only firms that always treat you as the top stakeholder. We ask, is “suitable advice” good enough for your wealth?
