Compass Rose Private Investment Management was established in June 2011. Creating an independent firm allowed us to break away from the “employee model” for Financial Advisors. Over time, being an employee of a major financial services firm/bank began to present conflicts with what we believed to be in the best interest of clients. We wanted the freedom to provide unbiased advice. We wanted to be free of pressure to sell and cross-sell propriety financial products. We wanted to have our sole focus be the relationship with the client.
Compass Rose Private Investment Management is a Registered Investment Advisor. Our Investment Advisory Representatives are fiduciaries, legally required to act in your best interest. To protect clients, we do not have custody of our clients’ assets. Instead, we select a separate custodian (Charles Schwab & Co.) for this function.
In the future, our goal is to grow Compass Rose to be a multi-generational firm that will continue in the Founder’s vision: a firm that helps clients attempt to do much, much more in their lives. It’s a big goal, matched by a bigger commitment to you, our valued and trusted client.
