Like most financial services firms, we believe in a diversified portfolio that best suits the investment goals of our clients. However, we are fortunate to have the ability to choose from a wider array of investment products than many of the large firms who advertise on television and have big buildings and stadiums with their corporate logos on them. This is because we are smaller, more nimble and truly independent. Because of those factors, we are able to consider many more innovative and creative solutions for our clients. The large financial institutions do not have the time or the personal to devote to alternative investments, especially those securities where the entire capital raise for the fund or the project is less than a few hundred million dollars. Those alternatives, most with considerable tax advantages, in real estate, energy and other tangible assets, can add an entirely new dimension to our focus on tax-deferred and tax advantageous investing and our emphasis on seeking a truly diversified portfolio of non-correlated investments for our clients.

Hill's philosophy on prudent investing, check out our proprietary website featuring the M.I.N.D.© Risk Management System, developed by Dan Hill, the Founder and President of D. H. Hill Financial.
