Investment markets are unpredictable, and we firmly believe that navigating them requires a tactical approach that is objective and disciplined.
Our proprietary investment strategies react to what the markets ARE doing — not what we think they SHOULD be doing.
We build customized portfolios for each client based on an extensive analysis of the family’s goals, concerns, risk tolerance and time horizon. We also pay keen attention to special circumstances like philanthropic objectives, inter-generational planning or socially responsible investing.
Our firm uses a broad range of investment vehicles to build portfolios, including stocks, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), mutual funds and structured products. We will also occasionally employ alternative investments, fee-based variable annuities or fixed/fixed-indexed annuities as needs dictate. While certain strategies require a high initial investment to deploy, we are also able to work very efficiently with those just beginning to save.
In every case, investment recommendations are made based on the particular needs of our clients and on rigorous analysis.
My wife and I got our will and power of attorney. We were really fortunate to have Robyn Ellis help us and sort it all out. I recommend them to my friends all the time.

Very accommodating to my schedule. The appointment was very smooth and efficient and one of the partners took extra time with us to discuss an unrelated issue to the one we had the appointment for.

David Ellis has great knowledge of the industry.
He explains every item in your portfolio in great detail.
Keeps you informed about how the market reacts to different stimuli.
When the market takes a dive, he doesn't run and hide. What he will do is have conference calls for all to join and he discusses the what's and why's and what the plan of action will be. Trying to keep all calm cool and collective. Opens the floor for questions and encourages one on one conversations as well.
I am very satisfied with David and his assistants.

David and the team do a great job. Very personalized wealth management approach that is comprehensive yet focused when it needs to be. There are several investment options that are usually not considered with typical financial advisors that use "modern portfolio management approach" to investing.
I have been particularly happy with the Global Tactical strategy, which has proven to be responsive to changes in the financial climate with excellent upside gains yet mitigates downside risk. This uses a momentum based model that is constantly monitored for changes in asset class.
Most importantly the specific financial concerns of the individual investor are strongly considered in developing a comprehensive plan. This is not a cookie cutter investing, not one size fits all but rather a tailored approach to the individual and their family.
I have been with David for many years and strongly recommend him.

I had a will and several other legal documents prepared by Vested Partners. Each process was a pleasant experience. The staff was knowledgeable, courteous and very accommodating. I feel it is a reflection of management style that the entire staff appeared to be truly happy.
