Dan Goldie Financial Services LLC, an independent financial advisory and financial planning firm in Menlo Park, California, reported today the firmâ€™s assets under management grew to over $350 Million as of December 31, 2009.
Online PR News – 11-January-2010 – – Dan Goldie Financial Services LLC (http://www.dangoldie.com) announced today that the firmâ€™s assets under management grew to over $350 million in 2009. The firmâ€™s portfolios benefited from positive returns last year as global equity markets experienced significant growth since in March, finishing the year with strong gains.
â€śOur clients were rewarded for staying invested in 2009 even though times were scary early in the year when the economic outlook seemed dismal,â€ť said Dan Goldie, President of Dan Goldie Financial Services. â€śAt a time when many other investors were selling equities, we worked hard to help our clients understand the potential benefits of maintaining a diversified, long-term investment strategy. I believe this benefited them not only last year, but also over the last decade or so of low returns for the broad U.S. stock market.â€ť
Dan Goldie Financial Services manages balanced portfolios of equities and fixed income securities for individual investors. The highest returns for the firmâ€™s clients in 2009 came from international equities, where the firm normally invests about 30-40% of a clientâ€™s equity allocation. U.S. investors holding international securities benefited from the falling value of the U.S. dollar, which added to the returns from local international markets.
Mr. Goldie said, â€śRecent times have been difficult for investors, but our experience is that those who remained disciplined and held diversified, multi-asset portfolios made it through better than most. We are pleased to have played a part in helping our clients navigate todayâ€™s difficult financial waters and to have seen a resumption of growth in assets under management.â€ť
