Aligned with you
Wynn Capital Management is an independent Fee Only registered investment advisor (RIA).
Founded in 2003 by professional trader Thomas Wynn, our mission is to apply academic research, innovative portfolio construction and advanced hedging strategies to allow our clients to capture and retain the expected returns of global assets classes. We provide comprehensive financial planning and investment management for individuals, families, retirement accounts, foundations, 401k and 403b plans.
National Association of Personal Financial Advisor’s definition of a Fee-Only financial advisor:
“NAPFA defines a Fee-Only financial advisor as one who is compensated solely by the client with neither the advisor nor any related party receiving compensation that is contingent on the purchase or sale of a financial product. Neither Members nor Affiliates may receive commissions, rebates, awards, finder’s fees, bonuses or other forms of compensation from others as a result of a client’s implementation of the individual’s planning recommendations. "Fee-offset" arrangements, 12b-1 fees, insurance rebates or renewals and wrap fee arrangements that are transaction based are examples of compensation arrangements that do not meet the NAPFA definition of Fee-Only practice.”
We receive a set fee for our advisory services from our client and no compensation from anyone else. This allows us to choose the best possible solutions for our clients with no incentive to do otherwise.
Wynn Capital Management also has a legal Fiduciary Duty to put the best interests of our clients first.
We are legally bound to make investment decisions that best satisfy the needs of our clients with no consideration for our own outcome. This may seem like common sense, but many firms are only bound by loose "suitability requirements" that can result in sub-optimal investment recommendations. Conflicts arise when multiple investments could be considered "suitable" but some options benefit the recommending advisor more than others. Even if our fee structure incentivized us to play favorites (it doesn't) we would still have an iron-clad legal responsibility to do what is best for our clients at all times.
The Department of Labor Proposes "Fiduciary Rule"
The US Department of Labor has proposed a rule that would force advisors to put the interests of their clients above their own financial interests. The rule would force other advisors to become more aligned with our model and with the needs their clients. Predictably, industry insiders are fighting this rule. Please check back for updates:
