Colors of Money
Properly managing your risk tolerance with your future goals in mind.
At Brown Financial Advisors, our holistic approach is designed to help our clients see the whole picture of their retirement and understand the many elements that are involved in developing a truly custom retirement plan. In order to maximize and grow your assets, our team will work with you to manage your investments based on our Color of Money system. Our Color of Money system uses a simple, but effective method to organize your assets, and provide the information you need to bring your amount of market risk closer to your goal as we create an individualized road map for you to follow. This custom process allows us to create a retirement plan as unique as you!
Red Money assets carry varying levels of risk and are generally not being managed for a specific purpose. Red Money may be subject to market fluctuation and the potential loss of principal. Examples of Red Money may include company stock, REITs, Variable Annuities or un-managed 401(k) or 403(b) accounts. Red money provides good growth opportunity, but should account for volatility that no investor can truly predict.
Yellow Money assets are similar to Red Money, but are professionally managed for a specific purpose. Yellow money can be managed toward your individual investment objectives and risk tolerances such as: growth, income, or principal preservation. The growth potential is greater than Green Money, but Yellow Money is subject to market risk and potential loss of principal.
Green Money assets are designed to provide principal protection and provide an opportunity for conservative returns. Your growth potential is less than Red or Yellow Money, but Green Money is fully insured and guaranteed to be there when you need it. Examples include government bonds, CDs, fixed and indexed annuities guaranteed by companies that specialize in and focus on safe Green Money investment options.*
