Integrity-Driven Consulting For Hawaiʻi Nei
TAO provides integrity-driven financial consulting to our communities. In our capacity as investment advisor representatives and fiduciaries, we relish the role of caretaker and steward of our clients’ assets – be it a company retirement plan, endowment, or family investment portfolio. To fulfill our mission, we designed a more accountable system than the industry standard.
THREE OVERLAPPING PRINCIPLES DEFINE OUR APPROACH:
1. TRANSPARENT PLANNING & INVESTMENT PROCESSES
A transparent, client-centered process provides understanding about our services, investment strategies, and cost. Providing this clarity improves our collective ability to make sound planning decisions with you.
2. ACCOUNTABILITY TO OUR CLIENTS & COMMUNITY
We are a local company and share the same values and aspirations as our clients. We serve our community and are accountable for our work.
3. OBJECTIVE STRATEGIES
We are fiercely independent. Recommendations are our own and not from another institution. We are guided by our own standards of objectivity and strategic opportunity.
Experience Across Disciplines
Our philosophical approach is that a highly experienced team with a deeper and collaborative relationship with our clients will serve their goals at a higher level. TAO is comprised of credentialed specialists with core competencies of proficiency and experience. Our collective experience, across multiple disciplines, enables us to be efficient and provide a high standard of care.
