At Sherpa Financial Advisors, in conjunction with our broker dealer, The Strategic Financial Alliance, you can be certain that before an investment opportunity ever reaches our clients, it has first gone through a thorough evaluation process.
Because we sometimes will recommend alternative investments - those that aren't the traditional stocks and bonds that most people are familiar with - below is an outline of the approval process to help you understand the various layers of review before we recommend any of these investments.

To provide a scope, the Due Diligence Team receives around 200-250 requests per year to review new investments. Of these, around 80 will go through the initial screening and 50 will move into a deeper dive. Of the 50, about half will be approved by the Investment Team. The process lasts 2-months on average, but can last up to six-eight months.
While these steps don't imply nor guarantee the success of any investment, we believe it helps to show a deep and thoughtful examination before we suggest an investment to any of our clients.
