About ACap Asset Management
ACap Asset Management (acapam.com) is a Fee-Only financial advisory firm specializing in advising medical professionals. Whether in private practice, in academia, or part of a medical group, doctors can benefit from ACap’s financial expertise, so that they can focus on their patients, their businesses, and their personal lives. Because ACap works primarily with medical professionals, we better understand the unique needs and circumstances of our clients, and provide highly personalized and professional service.
Our clients are highly skilled professionals with busy careers, many have little time to manage their finances, or are concerned about paying too much in taxes; but most importantly, our clients seek a trusted expert rather than a salesperson from a large bank or insurance company disguised as a financial advisor. To that end, ACap is an independent Fee-Only firm, does not work on commissions, nor sell any products. Our only source of income is through our clients. We carefully and frequently monitor our clients’ investments to ensure investments are commensurate with each client’s goals and risk tolerance. In addition, we are not wed to any investment banks, insurance companies, or mutual funds; as a result, we are free to offer our clients the best investments most suitable to their needs. Therefore, and most importantly, our advice is free from any conflicts of interest.
If you are a physician looking for excellent financial advise from a truly independent advisor, we invite you to contact ACap Asset Management. We look forward to scheduling a free introductory meeting to show you how ACap can provide you exceptional service.
