Our Service Commitment To You

Ellis & Associates is committed to providing the level of service that our clients deserve. This translates to going beyond financial planning and is focused on the total picture of our clients and their wealth.

We begin by ensuring our clients receive Quarterly Portfolio Reviews with comments tailored for their situation. We follow this with opportunities to discuss things outside of their investment portfolio like goals and aspirations for themselves and their wealth. After that, a contact schedule is customized for the needs of each client and their portfolio.

Communication plans include a mix of:

  • Telephone conferences

  • Emails

  • In person meetings
