About Us

Welcome to Breakwater Asset Management

about-usMuch has changed in the financial services market over the last 20 years. We believe the majority of firms have forgotten their fundamental purpose, to service the best interests of their clients. Today, there are far more investment options, quicker access to information, and a complex global market with increased volatility.  Given this climate we feel it is even more important clients have a trusted partner that understands their goals, their current situation and risk appetite.

 

It is our pleasure to introduce you a different type of investment management firm.  Breakwater was founded as a platform to help others professionally, financially and philanthropically.

 

As many of our friends and former colleagues know, we have a passion for the financial markets. We pride ourselves on working extremely hard for ourselves and others, we take pride in what we do and we always place our clients' interests ahead of our own. Over the past few years, it has become evident that not everyone in the financial services space shares these core values – and we have all seen the tremendous fallout as ponzi schemes, million dollar Wall Street bonuses, excessive and hidden fees have dominated the headlines. At the same time, many if not most firms have failed to protect investors over the course of the last decade as conventional wisdom says it is best to stay fully invested and ignore the ups and downs of the market. They tell you that based on history, the markets will eventually come back.

 

Culturally, many investment companies are geared more like sales organizations masquerading as distributors of financial advice. Although they may have the financial resources to create and implement the very finest analytical tools, this money is often allocated more to advertising and compensation. Moreover, these large firms will probably never enter, or ever define “comprehensive portfolio management” because they will usually not advise in areas which they cannot make money. The industry is broken. All the big bulge bracket firms push their advisors to be wealth accumulators (get as much money in the door as possible) then invest them in a bunch of mutual funds and move to the next person’s money. Lastly, most companies will prohibit or penalize their advisors for raising any cash or being defensive because this could potentially reduce fees. They handle money as if it is an assembly line process.

 

Our mission is to change the way you think about investment management. We want to provide you with a different client experience alongside a safer and smarter way to invest. Our broad insight & extensive experience over the years has led us to a unique approach helping our clients pursue the returns they need to achieve their investment goals but with downside protection and less volatility. We are committed to being different from the rest, building a company to be proud of and creating something that’s going to make a difference in people’s lives.
