What Makes us Different? What Makes Us Different? Solomon Wealth Management is independent but not alone. Our Registered Representatives are affiliated with Independent Financial Group, we clear our transactions through Pershing, and we utilize Portfolio Management Consulting Group (PMC) for Research and Portfolio Construction. Through these relationships, we create and manage portfolios made up of individual equities/ETF's and institutional class mutual funds. Our independence allows us to be comprehensive, and have a business model that is not predicated on the sale of proprietary financial products, allowing us to focus on our client’s goals, rather than the sale of a firm’s proprietary investment and insurance products.Our company provides wealth management services within a strategic allocation structure with a tactical approach. We not only subscribe to the modern portfolio theory but also utilize the endowment model style. Endowment models* add in an element of alternative investments that provide a non-correlated investment to the portfolio, and thus a more diversified allocation.All markets are not equivalent and sometimes a tactical approach is required to manage market sector rotations. We pride ourselves on managing assets in turbulent markets while tactically seeking to minimize downside risk.
