About Focus Asset Management

We are a fee-only fiduciary that specializes in servicing high-net-worth clients, and only serve a small and curated client base. Expect to meet with us at least quarterly. You will also have a portfolio team with whom you can speak, an entire research team that reports to your portfolio manager, and an operations team dedicated to all of your specific and important servicing needs. Think of us as your family office.

We have no sales goals, are not compensated by commissions and we don't work under the "umbrella" of a major firm. We are entirely independent and receive our fee directly from you. Period.
