NEW RELEASE
Financial Risk

Everyone perceives and assesses risk, differently. We must each decide how we are going to contend with it. With regards to your investments, do you prefer managing risk yourself, transferring your risk to another entity, or using a combination of both methods? To be expected, both have their upsides and downsides, but which is the correct fit for you, as the investor?
 
Let's take a look, together, at what exactly is entailed in managing your own risk and who the investor is who might benefit from that. Conversely, we'll take a look at transferring the risk and why this method has increased in popularity, recently (from the individual investor level to large pension funds). If you would like to know more about investment risk, please give us a call at 301-805-5538.

Bees in the winter live in the same hives that they inhabit all year round. They are strategic, efficient, and incredible planners - preparing the food they will need for those cold and frigid months.

Why You Want a Peer Reviewed Accountant

What is a peer review in the financial industry? We've just passed our ninth and we're pretty proud of that. So, let's take a look at why that's worth celebrating. Every 3 years a CPA firm must undergo an external evaluation; essentially the auditor becoming the audited. The goal of a peer review being to provide client confidence in the reliability of a firm's audited financial statements. A  firm should always commit to compliance regardless of the nature of the oversight or the resources required. It is within this culture of providing quality services and products that we hope to serve you well. Give us a call at 301-805-5538 to learn more.
