Companies & Services
At Prime Capital Investment Advisors (PCIA), you are assigned a dedicated lead advisor from among a diverse group of seasoned professional advisors. Your advisor’s focus will be trained on the specifics of your financial needs and goals—always taking into consideration “the big picture.” This lead advisor is your primary contact and the liaison between you and the larger PCIA investment team assigned to you.
Depending on your investment goals and objectives, your lead advisor is backed by a purposeful financial team who specialize in areas such as retirement, taxes, education or trusts. You will have the benefit of our deep bench—we don’t have just one retirement specialist or one trading guru. Instead, we offer a range of solid options, creating meaningful chemistry and an energetic synergy, as we build a well-rounded, customized mix of advisors for you.
Your money management team meets regularly to discuss proven and innovative strategic investment options as they build a solid, individualized plan for you. The plan is then clearly communicated with you, mutually agreed upon or adjusted as needed, given market events and your comfort level with risk, then set into motion.
History shows that any plan must be dynamic and flexible, as financial and market situations are, by nature, subject to often rapid change. That’s why your investment plan will undergo regular reviews by your team, with different team members bringing new ideas to the table. Then it’s up to the lead advisor to determine if the idea is on par with your financial goals, and if so, open to discussion with you.
Our team approach encourages an ongoing series of intelligent, meaningful discussions with the advisory group and you. This collaboration also produces a set of checks and balances for your account.
The big picture—your financial goals – is always top of mind, and it’s the basis of each decision we make. We believe the beauty of our team approach lies in its effective collaboration of experts and, ultimately, its ability to deliver solid financial results for our clients over time.
HIGH NET-WORTH INVESTORS
Are you disappointed with your current advisor’s services and performance? If you’re dissatisfied, the reason may be that your advisor has:
Too many clients
Our experience has shown that many investment advisors have more than 200 clients. This means the advisor is overseeing thousands of holdings invested in tens of thousands of different account configurations, all requiring active management. It also means an advisor’s attention can get stretched quite thin.
Too much bias
Many advisors work at large brokerage firms, as did many of our advisors previously. It’s not uncommon for these firms to “strongly encourage” the use of specific products. In a world in which your advisor’s compensation can vary from 0.25% – 15% based on the product he or she sells, bias can easily become part of the equation.
Too little communication
Lack of communication often is the top complaint from high net-worth individuals. When an advisor has too many clients, it frequently leads to a lack of regular, meaningful communication. The truth is, communication should not start and end at the beginning of the relationship; it should build and deepen over time.
Our business model is simple
- A team of five investment professionals per client
- A maximum of 10 clients per team
Contractually committed services for a select few
We realize that each client has unique expectations of their investment services and communications plan, both now and in the future. That’s why we build a custom service contract for each client in our tenclient program. Lip service is not an option.
Fiduciary services contract
Your team of investment advisors provides you with a written contract that outlines in detail each service you will receive and the date it will be provided. This contract ensures that you receive the high level of communication and service you are promised:
- Consistent phone contact
- Monthly internal reviews
- Quarterly face-to-face consultation
- Annual Summary Report
- Annual Master Plan Review
