About Us


Where do you want to be?

We want to help you get there.

At 8th Street, our mission is to provide you with professional financial planning and investment management services that are customized to meet your individual needs.

8th Street’s Investment Philosophy…

We believe investing is a long-term proposition driven by careful consideration and understanding of your personal financial goals and objectives.  We think appropriate asset allocation should be the basis for any investment goals, followed by fundamental analysis for individual security selection and tax and cost efficiency.  Investing involves the risk of loss and sometimes distressing market fluctuations.  We do not attempt to time the market over short term periods.  Instead, we believe that a consistent process of reviewing accounts and rebalancing to the asset allocation guidelines will ultimately drive long-term investment performance consistent with your objectives.
