At Ridgewood Investments, emphasizing thoughtful, long-term money management advice is the core foundation of what we provide our clients. Our investment managers have a passion for investing, with a particular emphasis on value and dividend focused strategies. While our portfolio offerings are discussed in more detail in our Strategies section, our core approach is to create long-term focused portfolios built to compound our investors capital through disciplined adherence to sound strategies. In most cases, these portfolios form the core foundation for our clients’ investment programs.
A Comprehensive Investment Program
In addition to our core equity offerings, we often supplement our internally managed investment offerings with other strategies and low-cost third party funds, in order to deliver a comprehensive investment offering individually tailored to each client. We do this by working with each individual client to devise a long-term investment strategy that best suits their specific needs. Once the investment plan is implemented, we work with each client to provide ongoing monitoring and adjustment to the investment plan as needed.
Additional Wealth Management Services
In addition to the specific investment strategies we offer, we realize that affluent individual investors increasingly face a wide range of wealth management issues, problems and opportunities. As a result, we work with our clients in provide sound guidance on related areas, including family wealth management, retirement planning, charitable giving and tax related issues, often by working in coordination with best-in-class outside advisers like lawyers and accountants. Our approach is to work with each client to make sure their specific needs are met, either through services we provide directly, or through partnering with third party providers.
