While our team has expanded, our investment department has worked tirelessly against a unique economic backdrop to position our portfolios well and to ensure that your money lasts as long as you need it to despite inflated markets, increasing inflation, historic monetary and fiscal stimulus, and widespread speculation. Many of our clients have expressed appreciation for our investment philosophy, which resulted in avoiding much of the market declines of 2022.
Enabled by strong digital capabilities and a deep understanding of your needs, we stand ready to provide you with advice and solutions at every step of your life’s journey. We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to serve you, and I personally thank you for your business, your trust, your friendship, and your referrals to Basepoint Wealth. In 2022 alone, over 70% of new clients to Basepoint Wealth came from referrals from our satisfied existing clients. Thank you so much!
Best wishes to you and have a wonderful start in 2023.
From here you can go anywhere!
