Putting our Clients' Interests First
Lucas Capital was founded by a team who understood the conflicts of interest on Wall Street. They set out to create a firm that would succeed by putting the clients’ interests first.
The tradition continues today.
- As fiduciaries, we always put your interests first
- While many firms are only fiduciaries part of the time, we put your interests first at all times
- We will use our expertise to understand all financial products available and choose the best ones for you
Fee or Commission?
We’re also fee-only, which means we charge you a fee to give you objective advice. That means:
- No commissions
- No sales pressure
- Our fees are clearly presented
Many of the major brand advisors have their own proprietary products with embedded fees or have arrangements with fund companies to earn fees that are not clearly disclosed to you. We do not receive any compensation from investments that we hold in your portfolio.
Since we only receive compensation from you, the client, that means we have no motivation other than to give you completely objective advice.
You usually pay your accountant and lawyer on a fee basis. Commissions should have no place when it comes to your money. As a fee-only provider, we simply do what’s best for you. That way, you can keep more of your money working for you.
Collaborative, Not Cookie-Cutter
At Lucas Capital, we don’t try to force your money into a one-size-fits-all model portfolio. Your portfolio is built to meet your unique needs. Our investment experts work directly with you, listening to your concerns, and creating an investment strategy.
Your assets are managed using evidenced-based strategies. You’re dealing directly with the professional managing your money. You can participate as much as you want and understand how you’re invested and why.
This same approach extends to helping you with all aspects of your financial life:
- Selling a business? We can help you with the deal structure so you can save taxes and achieve more of your goals
- Run a family business? We can help you and your family address succession planning, tax planning, and other aspects
- Change in your family life? We’ll help you examine and adjust your financial plan so you’re prepared for what’s next.
Whatever your financial situation, our experts are here to support you in getting the best results possible.
More Attention, Better Results
Turning your plan into reality takes commitment and work. Many advisors simply generate a plan and hope you implement it. At Lucas Capital, we’re different. Helping you implement your plan is all part of our full-service approach.
Once we have completed your financial plan, we’re here to help you work through all action items. We’ll start with your priorities, whether those are estate planning, college funding, or getting your retirement accounts in line. Over time, we’ll continue to help you organize and optimize each part of your financial life.
Financial planning is not a one-time event but an ongoing process. We will update the plan so that it reflects your changing life priorities, employment, and financial situation. The goal is to give you clear visibility into the future. Life is not always a straight line to success but often a windy path with many twists and turns.
All this attention helps make sure your planning leads to real results…and the achievement of your goals.
