Despite all the negative news constantly streaming on our TV screens, the equity and fixed income markets continue to perform very well thus far in 2016. In fact, this year we have seen many equity asset classes bounce back from a lackluster 2015. US value stocks, US small stocks, emerging markets and the energy sector are handily outperforming the S&P 500 in 2016. Yet another lesson in why investing requires discipline and a long term, evidence based strategy and not predictions or...
We are The Legacy Financial Group
Legacy is an independent registered investment advisor that provides prudent investment advisory services to individuals, 401k plans, trusts, foundations, and businesses.
We believe financial markets are efficient, risk and return are related, and diversification and discipline are the keys to a successful investment experience.
Legacy was founded to provide a successful investment experience to empower you to reach your goals. A successful investment experience results from owning a broadly diversified global portfolio. It is inherently designed to weather market downturns and to capture the growth generated by market upturns.
Our relationships are established upon trust and integrity. We will place your best interest first.
The key to the successful long term relationship we have with nearly every client is starting off with the right fit. That is why before we bring on a new client we go through an exhaustive information gathering process. Only with a good understating of someone’s long term financial goals can we determine if we are best suited to help them succeed. Additionally, we want to effectively demonstrate our expertise, experience and trust to the point that you feel there is no doubt we are the firm that best serves your needs.
After assimilating and synthesizing the information gathered in Step 1 we then get to work formulating your financial and investment plan. Once the framework is constructed we present to you the plan outline with specific steps on how to maximize the probability of achieving your life long goals, whether that be retirement planning, education planning, legacy planning, something else, or all of the above.
We typically describe implementation as a rocket ship launch. There is often a lot of heavy lifting to get your financial life in order. Investment implementation, savings strategies, tax planning, asset location, and estate planning are just a small sampling of the first steps in getting your plan into action. It may feel like a lot of movement without going anywhere, but once we get you off the ground it will seem like things are traveling at lighting speed towards your financial destination.
There is no such thing as a one-time financial plan or a “set it and forget it” investment strategy. Your life is complicated and things are constantly changing. That is why we meet often (at least annually) to continually fine tune and tweak your plan. There is undoubtedly a to-do-list that we will continue to dwindle down over time as we move you closer to the culmination of your investment goals. Ultimately we strive to see every client take their most important goals to fruition.
Team Our team of professionals.

Recently a well know financial advisor wrote a very good article concerning the difference between investing process and investing outcome. It is easy to read and he provides some great examples so I encourage you to read it:
Here at Legacy Financial Group we have always been proponents of academic based investing. Our goal is to design portfolios based on what we know from academic research and empirical data about how markets work and where returns comes from. As a result of this philosophy we have used mutual funds from Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA) as the core of most of our portfolios. They have a long history and strong foundation in building investment vehicles that maximize the use of...
