The Collins Investment Group works with families to find the most appropriate estate investment planning strategies for their situation, including the use of lifetime gifts and trusts to potentially reduce estate-tax liability. We understand the sensitive nature of this topic, and can assist in reviewing or helping you develop a plan that simplifies the transfer of your estate to family members. To ensure comprehensive and seamless execution of your investment strategy and future legacy, we consult with your other professional advisors, including attorneys, insurance specialists and CPAs, as needed. By encouraging all of your advisors to work together as a team, we are best able to identify opportunities and avoid strategic mistakes. The steps you take today to review your will and estate documents with your professional advisors could protect your heirs from substantial delays, fees and taxes.


The Collins Investment Group can offer individuals who seek to establish a trust an alternative to appointing themselves, friends or family members as trustees, and can therefore address trust needs with a high degree of impartiality. Additionally, if you choose to invest trust assets with us, you can benefit from reduced trust management and administration fees. We can assist you with a broad range of cost-effective trust strategies, including living, testamentary, life insurance and charitable trusts.1

1The Collins Group professionals do not provide legal or tax advice. However, we as Financial Advisors will be glad to work with your accountant, tax advisor and/or attorney to help you meet your financial goals. 

Our primary services and how we hold ourselves first and foremost is as investment advisors – providing advice and implementing ideas, not selling products. We offer fee-based investment advisory and asset management services where the client pays us one asset based fee which is also inclusive of most custodial trading transaction charges. We refer to these as wrap accounts1. While we focus on providing discretionary asset management services,  we also offer portfolio-management services and access to well-known, professional third-party money managers through advisory arrangements. We like to focus on the long-term success of your assets with cost-effective programs to help you achieve your financial goals. Many of our financial advisors are also broker-agents with our affiliated brokerage firm, XML Securities, LLC, member FINRA/SIPC. Please discuss with our financial advisor when a brokerage account would be better suited for your circumstances and, among other considerations, the anticipated level of activity and financial planning needs. Whether you are focused on achieving financial security by growing your assets or protecting the wealth you have built, we will work with you to formulate an objective to guide our recommendations and tailor our approach to align with what you feel comfortable with.

Wrap account programs include:

Private Investment Management — Mr. Collins is among the firm’s select advisors who manage client portfolios with discretionary authority. This is designed for successful individuals , businesses and organizations who demand a high-level of service and prefer not to be involved in the day-to-day investment activity. As a PIM client, you will meet with Mr. Collins to establish your investment objectives and guidelines for the management of your portfolio with access to quarterly analysis of your account performance.

Masters — Many individuals and institutions that lack the time or resources to direct their investments are still seeking wealth-management expertise. Through the Masters program, we will help you select a professional manager best suited to your financial objectives from a select list of investment managers who have been vetted and invited to offer their services by our clearing firm.

Asset Advisor — To succeed in today’s complex markets, you need objective advice that you can rely on. Asset Advisor offers a client-directed, comprehensive investment advisory program. While you ultimately make the specific investment decisions, we can provide recommendations as well as profiling, asset allocation, investment selection and ongoing advice, as needed.
