About Us
How are we different?

Team Service Model

It is not uncommon in our industry that a client is serviced by a single Advisor and Client Associate. This can lead to service challenges. To combat this, we use a team approach. Every Rosencrans Group client has a lead Financial Advisor who serves as their primary point of contact to address their needs. Additionally, they have access to all team and firm resources, which includes three Advisors (Jeff, John, and Erik), three Client Associates (Anum, Shana, and Sumita), a personal Bank of America Banking Specialist, a Bank of America Lending Officer, a Bank of America Private Bank Wealth Strategist, and an Insurance Strategist. We want to ensure the best possible end-to-end care for our clients.

Disciplined Investment Process & Comprehensive Wealth Management

We guide rational and opportunistic investment decisions using a dynamic asset allocation framework unique to every client based on their goals, risk tolerance, time horizon and unique circumstances. This disciplined framework helps us objectively view opportunities for rebalancing during the inevitable ups and downs of the market.

Planning is the at the core of our long-term financial strategy, and we leverage our proprietary Personal Wealth Analysis™ software that offers an ongoing, comprehensive view of your financial picture to help provide maximum confidence in the pursuit of your goals. We refresh client financial strategies every year and before major milestone life occurrences.

Our process is designed to help deliver a customized, consistent experience to assist clients not only in wealth accumulation and preservation, but in areas that go beyond investments. Our ability to provide access to the investment insights of Merrill, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America Private Bank, and the banking convenience and lending solutions of Bank of America offers a way to help clients manage all the pieces of their financial lives in one place.

Hyper-focus on Tax Minimization

We believe a critical part of a successful long-term financial strategy is ongoing tax minimization initiatives. This may come in the form of voluntary IRA distributions, Roth conversions, tax-loss harvesting, and a tax-efficient asset allocation structure within the portfolio. While we cannot legally provide specific tax advice as we are not CPAs, we have extensive knowledge of the tax code and will collaborate with your accountant to execute a custom plan for you.
