About Alpha Beta Gamma
Choosing a financial partner is about far more than just finances. At Alpha Beta Gamma Risk Management and Alpha Beta Gamma Wealth Management, we take pride in the options and services we offer our clients. Our mission is to provide sound recommendations designed for your future benefit.
As a completely independent firm, at ABG Risk Management we work hard to transfer risk over to insurance companies and away from your family. In order to do that, we offer a huge range of products from dozens of providers, and we research your options in terms of coverage features and premiums to help achieve the best fit.
At our sister division, ABG Wealth Management, we strive to eliminate the guesswork often associated with wealth management planning
by providing clear information and recommendations. We assist in the design and then implement a plan for your future. We then remain by your side, monitoring how the plan is working, making any necessary adjustments as life changes along the way.
ABG Wealth enjoys the resources of an independent national financial services firm, and we base our asset allocation decisions on research and advice from some of the world’s best analysts. We have access to investment solutions from some of the best minds in academia and business.
For you, our client, we use our collective experience and resources to put it all together into a comprehensive financial and retirement plan for your family.
The Gamma Formula™
Our name describes what we do. Alpha is the generation of returns above a benchmark which is every investment advisor’s goal. Beta is a measure of risk as an investor seeks to generate returns with less risk or volatility than a benchmark. Gamma is the “holy grail” of investing, which shifts the risk/reward relationship to increase returns while reducing portfolio risk
We are not a brokerage, we are registered investment advisors, with a fiduciary duty to recommend what is in your best interests. We utilize principal-protected strategies when indicated to help shift risk away from you and your family.
The Gamma Formula process contains 7 pillars:
- Asset management
- Risk management
- Financial planning
- Estate planning
- Cash and credit management
- Philanthropic planning strategies
- Other (financial advice as needed regarding your homes, automobiles, bank accounts and more)
