Message from Founding Partner, Kipley Lytel, CFA:

MCM's approach is to tailor solutions to your needs, then apply our vast financial experience to improve the performance of both your portfolio and personal financial goals. MCM applies Modern Portfolio Theory and Prudent Investor guidelines to create and carry out strategies every step of the way. We believe investors are best served through moving investors to the highest investment return frontier given a client's return objective, risk profile and constraints (time, liquidity, taxes, etc). We recognize that today's tumultuous markets require expertise and tools that are often beyond individual investor resources and many broker aims or services. Our goal is a long-term partnership that is a fixed fee-based relationship, generating no conflict of interest such as hidden fees, commissions or account churns.
