WHO WE ARE



Spectrum Financial Inc. is a SEC Registered Investment Advisor with a 30+ year track record of building client assets using active risk management techniques. Founded in 1986 by money manager Ralph Doudera, Spectrum has long been considered one of the more successful active investment management firms serving individual investors. Spectrum is also recognized for its unique philanthropic stance and is dedicated to helping people throughout the world live better lives.

We manage investments for individuals, institutions and financial representatives. Specifically, Spectrum provides portfolio management services to IRAs, corporate pension, profit-sharing, 401Ks, charitable institutions, foundations, endowments, and trusts. We also serve advisors and individuals targeting specific personal financial goals, from retirement savings to education funding.

For more than three decades, our primary objective has been achieving consistent rates of return that are in excess of a buy/hold strategy over a complete market cycle. Our investment philosophy gives your portfolio an entry to build equity when the market turns back up instead of spending your gains just trying to get back to breakeven. We invite you to learn more by reading The Full Spectrum, our newsletter, here.

Our strategies can be accessed as mutual funds or separately managed accounts and through our asset management platforms.

WHY DO WE MANAGE MONEY?

" To improve your life financially, by adding value to the investing process with flexible and opportunistic
investment approaches, active risk management and asset diversification.
