About Us

Starboard's staff has more than 50 years experience in the investment business.  In a world filled with mega financial institutions, we think you will appreciate the personalized attention that can only come from a small enterprise with an entrepreneurial spirit.   Managing wealth requires traits developed over time and takes experience, skill and especially patience.  We feel it is crucial to have a relationship with an adviser that manages risk rather than attempt to outperform in up markets.
