Commercial endeavor has consistently evolved through the ages.
Advances in technology, transportation, and communication, and
the transformation from parochial to international focus has
resulted in the complex, multifaceted global economy of today.
One element of this state of affairs has remained consistent,
however - individuals and corporations engaging in commercial
enterprise want to insure that their investments remain as safe
as possible and increase in value over time. Seay Stewardship
& Investment Company (SSI) exists to serve that critical purpose
- protection, stewardship, and augmentation of client assets in
a complicated, ever-changing economic environment.
George E. Seay, III established SSI in 1998 to serve clients through
investment management, financial counsel and planning, estate
planning, and tax-related counsel. SSI's formation is based upon
the premise that individualized investment management, specifically
tailored to serve the unique needs and interests of each client,
represents the most effective and trustworthy manner by which to
protect, shepherd, and augment the assets of each client. Working
carefully with each client to assess risk tolerance, investment
suitability, long range goals, and tax-related issues, SSI will
structure specific investment portfolios that meet the client's
parameters and wishes. SSI serves the investment needs of individuals,
family trusts, charitable foundations, estates, institutions, and select
SSI's primary investment service arises from individualized
portfolio management. SSI provides discretionary investment management
in the areas of common stocks, fixed income securities, real estate,
and oil and gas royalty interests. Additionally, SSI offers financial
counsel and planning to assist clients in preparing for future events
such as college education for children, retirement, and discretionary
income sources for the future. Furthermore, SSI offers counsel in
estate planning and taxation, as Mr. Seay is a licensed attorney,
capable of assisting clients in limitation of tax liability and
assurance that financial planning is well-suited to address future
needs and goals.
SSI has designed its compensation structure to ally itself
with the interests and goals of its clients. SSI's only source
of compensation is fee income from its clients, through a percentage
charge based upon client assets under management (1). SSI receives
no income from outside third parties. As SSI receives no commission
related compensation, SSI's success depends on the success of its
clients; as clients prosper financially, the reputation and prospects
of SSI increase as well. Alliance of SSI's interests with those
of its clients eliminates conflicts of interest, solidifies its
clients' trust in the firm, and insures that each client is aware
of SSI's compensation structure and its natural incentive to provide
each client superior investment management, safety, and performance.
