We devise tax reduction plans that are tailored to each client’s overall circumstances, including non-managed assets. For example, the investment portfolio design may sometimes be used as an offset to the specific tax implications of a client's business interests or the sale of real property.
Account Titling and Division of Assets
Through the investment portfolio, we help with account titling and division of assets among accounts so there is consistency with a client's specific estate planning and other needs. This allows for the proper implementation of the technical instructions of estate planning or Family Law counsel. This process is essential to ensure that legal planning comes to fruition as intended.

Portfolio Management Process
PAS, Inc is not a broker or a dealer. We receive no fees or commissions on the trading of securities or the sale of any investment products. Our comprehensive financial planning services are provided on a flat-fee basis.
To add to that, our portfolio management fees are calculated as a percentage of assets under management, taking into consideration the services required and the participation of other advisors and agents.
Funds for portfolio management and alternative investments are accepted only on a full discretion basis and are maintained in individual accounts with custodial or clearing firms. As a Registered Investment Advisor, we are able to eliminate brokerage commissions and separate transaction fees on client accounts and offer an all-inclusive management fee arrangement.
In addition to obtaining sophisticated, state-of-the-art execution from our custodial or clearing firms, we also negotiate for our clients to receive significant account advantages. These include institutional money market rates and margin rates, the elimination of mark-ups on bonds and other fixed income securities, and the removal of sales charges on thousands of mutual funds.
Our clearing firms also afford us access to cutting-edge research materials that supplement our own direct research and service subscriptions. This includes industry leaders such as Value Line, Morningstar, and Advent, among many others.
For added security, we maintain our own E&O Insurance coverage. Our company also requires that all custodial firms with whom we place accounts in be appropriately insured.
