Investment Advisory Services
At Protection Point Advisors we specialize in investment management. Whether you have a young family to consider or you want to make sure you will be able to “thrive and not just survive” during your retirement years, there is much to consider. No matter what stage in life, we personally assist you throughout your working years and beyond. We want to be your guides throughout your lives.
Most of our programs provide quarterly performance reports and consolidated statements with ongoing monitoring (comparing the accounts’ total return to appropriate benchmark indices). All of this is accomplished with one annual fee, which is based upon a percentage of assets under management.

- Cost Basis Reconstruction* – If you have investment, and you aren’t sure how much you paid for them or exactly when they were purchased, we can use historical data to construct estimates that account for dividends and stock splits, or spin offs, and provide you with an educated estimate for IRS purposes. Once this is done, we are then able to help track changes going forward.
