Helping turn your money into sound investments

Who We Are

Leave your money with true experts

At Lipe & Dalton, both founders hold the prestigious Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation which is awarded only by the internationally respected CFA Institute. CFA charter-holders are held to some of the highest ethical and fiduciary standards in the investment industry.

It’s Your Money, Let True Experts Handle it

Among the more difficult industry designations to attain, CFA applicants must possess a bachelor’s degree (or equivalent as assessed by CFA Institute) prior to entering the program. Upon completion of three rigorous examinations offered only twice a year, candidates must complete 48 months of qualified, professional work experience before being awarded the charter. CFA charter-holders are also obligated to adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards governing their professional conduct.

Managing your Money is our only Focus

While many financial professional offer a wide range of products and services, we concentrate purely on managing clients’ money. This commitment to research and risk management has helped our clients achieve above average returns with a lower amount of risk. Our ability and willingness to invest outside traditional norms has provided outstanding results over the longer term. We want to focus on one thing and focus on doing it well.

Separately Managed Portfolios VS. Mutual Funds

Lipe & Dalton specializes in “separately managed portfolios” where the client holds individual stocks and bonds rather than comingled investments such as mutual funds. Separately managed accounts offer more control over the portfolio so we can create an optimal allocation of stocks and bonds with a secondary goal towards tax efficiency.

Transparency & Accountability

Lipe & Dalton operates under a policy of complete transparency and accountability. All assets are held at a third party custodian and clients are made aware of every transaction. It is our duty to safeguard your investments portfolio while we help it grow. We not only monitor your investments with the latest state of the art technology, but we believe in complete accountability.
