  • Carolyn B.

    The personal service provided by my Financial Advisor

  • Myra G.

    Gary Korolev has been my financial planner for 5 years and I was with Sovereign even longer. Always he has attended to my best interests, has been willing to explain the intricacies of my portfolio (no matter how many times I ask!), and has extended himself to meet wherever is convenient. I have done well financially under his guidance. He and his company have handled the chalIenges of the corona virus with skill, and he goes above and beyond to let his clients know he is in their corner. I look forward to working with him for many more years to come.

  • Gerry L.

    Good information in non-technical terms with no sales pressure. Very useful written reviews of telephone sessions that cover our investment strategy and results. I have been with this team for 30+ years.

  • Alexandra M.

    Their attentiveness and flexibility...Gary has the ability to drill down into details, forecasts, and nuances of the market, and he can also give a big picture analysis. Each meeting I am provided with an indepth array of charts and comparisons-he is at once very professional and personable. Good location, good parking near Tyson's complex. Highly recommend Sovereign!

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Before making any recomendations we want to make sure we go through a thorough discovery process to enable us to fully understand what our client's needs really are. Once we have that understanding, we craft a custom strategy and present it to our client. If the client agrees to the plan, we execute on the strategy. Then it is on the the monitoring stage as we manage to our client's goals and update the plan over time as the plan matures with the client and their goals. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I Have 15 years of Experience as a Wealth Manager/Financial Planner. I hold the Chartered Financial Analyst Designation as well as a Bachelor's Degree in Finance. I am fully licenced to advise clients on Investments as well as Insurance. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

In general clients pay 1% per year for our services, if under $500,000 in assets, our fee rates go down as the amount of assets under management goes up. We will beat other full service firms by 10% if such an offer is brought to us.  

Some clients prefer to pay an hourly rate or pay commissions instead of an ongoing fee on assets, and we can work that way as well.  

How did you get started in this business?

I have always wanted to help investors build their Net Worth and work toward the ideal of Individual Sovereignty.

What types of customers have you worked with?

Retirees, businesses, business owners, young families, people who are in the 40's and 50's and seriously thinking about their retirement plan.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Review several advisors and see with whom you have the best chemistry and the greatest understanding in terms of the way they provide their service. 

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Think about what your goals are financially. How much guidance you think you will need. How comfortable you are with losses in the market. What fee level or fee structure (ongoing fees, hourly fees or commissions) are most agreeable with you.
