The Difference

Know The Difference™ when you’re comparing Annex Wealth Management’s team to others. Annex Wealth Management portfolios are built by knowledgeable former institutional portfolio managers whose sole duty at Annex Wealth Management is investment management.

You may be asking too much if your current advisor is responsible for nurturing your relationship while strategizing and managing your investments. Other wealth management firms may get your investment plans from planners located in a far-away city or office.

A financial advisor who handles investments for his or her clients works to stay abreast of client communications, marketing, and other issues – not simply the management and performance of a client portfolio.

The Team

Annex Wealth Management believes peace and security increase when your investment decisions are made by a dedicated investment management team led by a seasoned Chief Investment Officer.

Our CIO is bound by an ethical code which includes adherence to investment integrity and a requirement to put interests of clients above their own. Annex Wealth Management’s active and passive investment strategies balance opportunities and costs with one person in mind – you.

Compare the difference in peer groups – Annex Wealth Management considers other institutional portfolio managers and investment professionals their peers. A financial advisor’s peer group is typically other financial advisors.

The result – a different approach, philosophy, and often, a different outcome. Annex Wealth Management strongly believes in delivering the best client service through a team dedicated to investment management instead of a single individual trying to handle every last advisory duty.

Annex Wealth Management’s Investment Policy Committee

Annex Wealth Management’s Investment Management Team meets regularly to propose and discuss new policies and review our current position in light of our investment philosophy.

Headed by Annex Wealth Management’s CFA® – Chief Investment Officer Derek Felske  – the committee seeks to review portfolio holdings, performance, and vet portfolio changes.

Members of the committee interrogate each other, debate, and sometimes disagree; but drawing on and conferring with collective intelligence and insights creates a more informed, wiser investment philosophy and keeps us focused on our clients’ best interest.


Actively Managed Mutual Funds

We will use actively managed mutual funds when we’ve identified “best of breed” active managers that we believe can outperform comparable index funds on a risk-adjusted basis. We prefer mutual funds for asset classes that comprise less efficient areas of the market. The higher expense ratio of the actively managed funds may be justified by their opportunity to outperform comparable ETFs or index mutual funds. We will use ETFs for asset classes that are very efficient, because keeping portfolio costs low is very important.

Past performance may not be indicative of future results. Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, including the potential loss of principal. It should not be assumed that future performance of any specific investment or investment strategy recommended or undertaken by Annex Wealth Management, LLC will be profitable. Neither diversification, portfolio construction, ongoing management, or the core and tactical strategies employed by Annex Wealth Management provide a guarantee against loss of principal or any measure of expressed or implied investment return.
