What Sets Us Apart
Acting on "Your Best Interests"
OMEGA CAPITAL is an independant investment advisor and financial planning firm. We are not owned or controlled by any other company or affiliated with any investment or insurance product manager or distributor. We are able to pick and choose what we feel are the "Best of Breed" investments for our clients without any outside influences.
The "Fiduciary Standard"
We are held to a "Fiduciary Standard". Simply put, we always put our clients "best interests" ahead of our own, not because we are bound to as per the Investment Advisors Act of 1940, but because it's the only way. Many other so called financial advisors are only held to a "suitability standard" which only requires that whatever you buy from them is suitable even though it may not be in your best interest. At OMEGA CAPITAL, it's all about Trust.
No Investment Product Conflicts
100% of the investment advisory fees that OMEGA CAPITAL earns is paid to us directly by our clients. Since our founding in 1999, we have never earned a sales commission on any investment security that our clients' have purchased. All investment products that are recommended and purchased by our clients are purely commission-free. This eliminates the need to "sell" and gives our clients peace of mind in knowing that we are only using the investment vehicles we feel are appropriate for our clients based purely on their risk and reward characteristics. We have no affiliations with any of the investment products we offer or the distributors we use.
Safety of Client Assets
We do not hold custody of our clients' assets. All client brokerage account assets are held at TD Ameritrade Institutional™ a member of FINRA and SIPC. TD is a publicly traded company whose stock trades on the NASDAQ under the symbol "AMTD." Clients receive monthly accounts statements from TD, and accounts can be viewed online and accessed daily. OMEGA CAPITAL distributes portfolio statements and performance reports on a quarterly basis. Other account custodians are available.
Our clients' portfolios are all custom tailored based on each clients' objectives and risk tolerance. We do not believe in using cookie cutter, one size fits all, portfolios. Among our current client base, we have created a myriad of varying portfolios ranging from very aggressive to ultra conservative and everything in between. We typically utilize the following equity asset classes when creating our portfolios: US Large Cap, US Mid Cap, US Small Cap, International Equities and Technology. In the fixed income arena, we typically use the following asset classes: U.S. High Quality taxable and tax-free bonds, High Quality International Bond, High Yield bonds, Emerging Markets bonds as well as Preferred stocks.
Broad Range of Clientele
Our clientele consists of a very diverse group. We work with young clients of all ages; single, married, with and without children, empty nesters, retirees, professionals, educators and business owners. This means a broader range of experience to better serve you.
