220 Montgomery St.
Suite 865
San Fransisco, CA 94104

Asset Dedication partners with planning-centric advisors by freeing them from the burden of investment management and back-office administration. Our investment strategy refines and expands the ACP model utilizing dedicated portfolio theory by linking each client’s portfolios to their lifetime financial plan via our unique Critical Path System. The equity portion is time-targeted to maximize the minimum growth based on the minimax principle, and the fixed income portion is built to minimize its cost. We also provide a full range of back-office services to help reduce your operational headaches. Our goal is to help advisors scale their business and free up more time for servicing clients – and living their own lives – and less time dealing with technical and tedious tasks. ACP advisors qualify for a special discount. For more details, contact info@assetdedication.com or visit our website.
