Portfolio Management Services
The selection of an investment manager is an important decision and it is crucial that there be a meeting of the minds between the client and advisor. JMR Capital Management seeks to provide a broad spectrum of wealth management services and achieve enhanced and consistent investment returns by following three basic principles:
- THE PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITY OF AN INVESTMENT PROFESSIONAL IS TO ADHERE TO THE HIGHEST ETHICAL STANDARDS
- THE PRIMARY JOB OF AN INVESTMENT ADVISOR IS TO MANAGE RISK
- THE PRIMARY SKILL OF AN INVESTMENT ADVISOR SHOULD BE LISTENING
JMR Capital Management is an asset fee based independent investment advisor registered with the California Department of Corporations and the FINRA/IARD division of the SEC. We have no banking or investment product relationship with any financial institution and as a result, receive no incentives or compensation which might create a conflict of interest or adversely impact the investment selection process. Our portfolio management process is governed by independent selections culled from a variety of resources for the best research and most cost effective order execution.
We develop an investment strategy and allocation plan for each client, based on their specific needs and execute the plan that has been approved and understood by the client. We update our clients quarterly and more frequently as events or circumstances demand regarding investment performance, relevant tax information, and the investment environment going forward.
Client accounts are held at the Institutional Service Group of Charles Schwab, a unit dedicated to providing services to independent registered investment advisory firms such as JMR Capital. Our clients hold assets in investment accounts in their own name at Schwab Institutional and authorize JMR Capital to execute investment transactions and withdraw investment management fees as specified in our contract by signing a Limited Power of Attorney.
Our investment philosophy can be best described as “agnostic” and our implementation of an investment strategy as highly disciplined. Portfolios managed by JMR Capital typically hold a core group of diversified assets consisting primarily of exchange traded securities and mutual funds selected though a rigorous screening process. As an independent firm with no proprietary investment products, JMR Capital is committed to an “open architecture” approach whereby client assets may be allocated to a broad array of managers and investment strategies For our client portfolios we are able to select from an unusually large universe of investment options, some of which are not available or are closed to individual investors. All mutual funds purchased are either no-load funds or funds that are available to us at no sales load to our clients.
Specific examples of portfolio allocations with their respective rates of return as well as fee schedules can be made available upon request.
