Fiduciary: Founded in trust and Ethically bound to your best interest

Global Style Asset Management combined with Holistic Financial Planning.

As a fee-only Registered Investment Advisory firm, we're held to a fiduciary standard. It's a promise that we'll do only what we believe is in your best interest. We put personal motives, gains or conflicts of interest aside to ensure we're acting in an honest and trustworthy manner.



Milagre: An exceptional product or achievement, or an outstanding example of something. 

Milagre is the Portuguese word for Miracle. A miracle is generally defined, according to the etymology of the word—it comes from the Greek thaumasion and the Latin miraculum—as that which causes wonder and astonishment, being extraordinary in itself and amazing or inexplicable by normal standards. My entire life has been a miracle and I owe much of our success to the trust and loyalty of our family of clients with some of those relationships spanning over 40 years of financial planning service with Paul, and the unbounded commitment to excellence by our team. In this context, Milagre means to reach for the seemingly impossible.

What is proactive asset management? In our view, it is very different than a buy and hold approach.
A buy and hold approach may work for you if you have the ability to tolerate potentially large swings in the stock market.
Another potential risk of being fully invested is opportunity cost. Should the market experience a step decline, those that are fully invested are not in a position to take advantage of opportunities.

We at Milagre endeavor to provide a supportive experience for our family of clients and act as unofficial confidants through our comprehensive set of offerings. We strive to create a family-like atmosphere for our clients. 
We pose as few limitations as possible on our job as Personal Advisers to our clients and their families.
We make it our directive, and even more importantly our commitment, to do whatever it takes to secure

As you read through the information on this page you may come to realize just how complex and how necessary the process of Estate Planning is. A well designed estate plan can be complex and time consuming, depending on your financial situation and goals, and it must be maintained to keep up with changes in the law and in your life . Estate Planning is included as part of our Investment Management Services offering.

Over 30 years ago Paul coined the phrase “A financial plan without a concept, is like a ship without a rudder. It will never get anywhere except by accident”. True then and today, financial planning creates an ongoing living process that should reduce your stress about money, support your current needs, and build a nest egg for pre or post retirement. A living plan helps determine how much money you’ll need to reach your goals.

Because we serve only a small group of families, we believe that we spend a much greater amount of time and resources on each of our clients than many companies in our industry do. Here, not only can you generally reach any of us directly anytime during normal business hours, but you don’t have to suffer through a myriad of prompts and push several keys on your phone only to be told to leave a voice mail.

Our Wealth Management Style is driven by our humble beginnings. We are just normal people like our family of clients. Our families were not wealthy, we do not have any connections to politicians or billionaires, in fact our beginning is one of hunger and poorness.

Everything we have been able to build for ourselves, our families, and their future, we owe to the loyalty of our clients.

Every dollar that leaves our clients accounts to costs is a dollar less our clients and their families have to reach their goals. Creating efficiencies and savings is another way we try to improve performance. We operate on an institutional platform that allows us the benefit of zero commissions trading.
Simply put, most transactions such as buying or selling a stock are at no transaction fee.

Security these days is of the utmost importance. Because of our small size, and also because of our internal significant programming skills, we can create an environment that is more secure and we are more aware of the risks and how to monitor them.  First, we own and maintain our own servers. This is highly unusual for a small firm such as ours, but increases the safety and security of your data.

We are acutely aware that our success is entirely dependent on our client’s success, and therefore our level of commitment to excellence must have no boundaries. We are 100% client oriented, and we maintain a client-centric business model. What our clients need and want is all that matters to us. We make sure every single client has access to every one of us personally anytime they need us.

At Milagre we have a commitment to sustainability and to acting in an environmentally friendly way, a commitment to innovation and excellence, a commitment to doing good for others and to helping those less fortunate, and a commitment to building a strong, safe, and fun work community. You can contribute by suggesting ways we can meet these commitments.

We focus on our family of clients first and always. We are client driven; we operate on a local and personal level. We invest in our company for the long term, to serve our clients better. We set the highest standards of performance. We demand financial strictness and risk discipline. We strive for the best internal governance and controls. We act and think like owners and partners to build efficient operations.

Fiduciary: Any person entrusted with the property of another party and in whose best interests the fiduciary is expected to act when holding, investing or otherwise using that party’s property. By definition, regulators deem investment advisers to be fiduciaries. Fiduciary Duty: The legal duty of a fiduciary to act in the best interests of the beneficiary. Fiduciary Duty also refers to the highest degree of trust, esponsibility,

There are a series of initial meetings we call “The Implementation Phase”. These meetings are designed to create a framework for our relationship.

After an initial fact find, we proceed to a risk analysis meeting, where together we will define a risk profile.

There are many modules to cover such as Estate planning, portfolio construction, and more.

Each module requires several meetings. As time passes and the years roll by there are fewer face to face meetings necessary since we are then in a maintenance and review stage.

Most modules require smaller interim meetings for simple review or to just look at an initial or interim step such as a review of a developing Estate Plan, or the updating of a Living Financial Plan.

For the convenience of our clients we use a web meeting system that allows our team to communicate live with the client with both visual and audio communications.

We can share our screens and run any our software and ineract with our clients face to face These technologies enable our client to attend these review and interim meetings while remaining in the comfort of their home. 

A substantial amount of our communications is via
e-mail and also by personal phone conferences.

We also employ proprietary technologies to create phone and email alerts for our clients so that when a pressing issue arises, we can quickly locate and engage with our clients as necessary.  It is the use of these proprietary technologies that gives us our ability (when time and market conditions allow) to seek our clients consent for each trade or adjustment in their portfolio.
When possible, we seek to attain our clients consent so that we can better keep our clients engaged and informed on their investments. 

From time to time we produce informative videos that are made available only to our family of clients.

These videos are designed to address current market conditions, discuss issues such as technical analysis, or other areas of interest to our clients. Periodically we also sponsor conferences for our clients.

These are by invitation only and are designed to bring a group of our clients together, discuss broad market conditions, or address a specific issue that may be common to them.

These conferences are available only to our clients, their families, and guests.
