It’s no surprise Wall Street puts itself first and the financial interests of its clients second. It’s easy to do when investment fees are tied to the amount of assets under management rather than actual investment performance.
We founded Leppla Capital Management (LCM) because this is simply not right. We believe accountability and transparency is your inherent right as an investor, and your financial partners should only succeed when you do.
Unlike traditional vendors who only care about one thing (profit), LCM is your trusted fiduciary. We are held to the highest legal standards of duty and care, legally prohibited from engaging in conflicts of interest with our clients. We stand shoulder-to-shoulder with you as your Plan Sponsor and trusted ally.
A fiduciary is someone who holds a legal or ethical relationship of trust with one or more other parties (person or group of persons).
SHARED GOALS:We own what you own. If it’s the right investment for you, it’s the right investment for us.
We have over 40 years of combined experience in the investment business. We offer comprehensive, investment-grade services to our client investors who may not enjoy “High Net Worth” status.
LCM and our advisors research over 600 mutual fund families and 15,000 potential Mutual Fund and Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) choices to find best-in-class investments—and we purchase institutional grade, low fee, no-load investment products, not available to the retail public.
We uses analytic research from pre-eminent investment research firms such as TD Ameritrade, Morningstar, Standard & Poor’s, Argus Research, Charles Schwab, Ford Equity Research and others.
We offer different asset allocation models customized for you, with a broad range of asset classes represented (e.g., large cap value, small cap growth, emerging markets, short-term fixed income or preferred stock funds, etc.) Our investment allocation models are designed for your long-term success.
We provide ongoing, active management of your account(s)—ensuring there is no significant overlap in investments in the ETF’s and mutual funds you own. We conduct quarterly reviews of your account to see whether investment rebalancing is required, and modify your investments to accommodate changing circumstances in your life.
We provide you with a complementary Client Wealth Management Investment Policy Statement, which organizes all your financial affairs in one convenient place for you and your heirs. You will also receive client-specific quarterly performance reports against your benchmarks.
Our client assets are held by a 3rd party custodian, TD Ameritrade or Charles Schwab, two of the largest financial services firms in the world. TD Ameritrade provides investment and trading services to nearly 6 million accounts that total more than $500 billion in assets.
TD Ameritrade is a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC), which provides up to $500,000 of protection to securities in your account; and provides an additional $149.5 million in protection for each client through supplemental coverage provided by Lloyd’s of London.
We are a fiduciary to you, not a broker. This means we are legally required to ensure that each investment recommendation we make is based on your best interest alone, not ours or anyone else’s.
