The concept of the 'family office' was born out of individuals and families needing a more personalized financial platform. While a client's actual money still resides within the security of traditional banks, financial decisions can be made independent of large corporate infrastructures engrained into the culture of large banks. The Doman Group uses access to the financial products available at the larger institutions with a focus on providing each client with the best possible financial outcome for the client. As fiduciaries the Doman Group puts their client's finances first.
fiduciary: /fəˈdooSHēˌ erē, -SHərē/
An individual in whom another has placed the utmost trust and confidence to manage and protect property or money. The relationship wherein one person has an obligation to act for another's benefit.
The Doman Group is a federally registered investment adviser with the SEC, which mandates that we must invest for our clients’ best interests. What this means is TDG Advisors:
select, not sell investments for our clients.
place his/her interests below that of the client.
are expected to invest solely in the same securities they recommend to their clients – you should only trust a chef that eats their own cooking!
