Welcome!

Welcome!  Many of us dream of being free to work when we want and how long we want, but how many of us are actually living the dream or can confidently say that we’re on track?  What’s keeping you from that financial independence?  Is it a tax burden?  Do you lack strategies appropriate for you to help reach both present and future goals?  Could the problem be your advisor, who doesn’t keep in touch with you or doesn’t return your important calls in a timely manner?

To review your situation and identify areas of improvement, email or call me at (949) 221-8105 ext 2128.  I’m client focused, take a comprehensive team approach to your investment strategy, and love to work with USC alums and fans.

  • Ongoing personal service
  • Quarterly, Semi-Annual, or Annual Reviews

Benefits:

  • Easy personal access to your trusted advisor

  • Customer Oriented Services

Take My Online Risk Assessment

Research shows that four out of five investors have more risk in their portfolio than they realize.* This excess of risk can subject you to greater losses in market downturns. Risk is different for every person based on their unique situation, stage of life, and personality. It is important to understand your personal risk preference so that you can ensure that your portfolio is in line with it and you aren’t caught off guard. Do you know your risk number? Check out my online risk assessment tool to see where you stand today!

Once you know your unique risk number, it’s time to make sure your portfolio reflects your risk level. Take the first step and reach out to me at (949) 221-8105 x 2128, or email me at michael.loo@lpl.com.

*Research by Riskalyze, LLC

Diversification helps you spread risk throughout your portfolio, so investments that do poorly may be balanced by others that do relatively better. Neither diversification nor rebalancing can ensure a profit or protect against a loss.

*Growth and Preservation are positioned as an investment goal.  Investing in certain securities may help to hedge against certain risk, but does not imply any guarantee from loss.
