Prospect Client Questions


  • I am retiring - what should I do with my 401k?

    When you retire or leave a company it is typically in one’s best interest to roll the 401k into an IRA. Once the rollover has been complete and you have all of your funds available in an IRA, your investment selection dramatically increases. 401ks are limited to the funds selected by the company offering the 401k plan making a Traditional IRA more advantageous. Please reach out to mcm@mcdonoughcapital.com if you are interested in opening up an IRA through McDonough Capital Management.

  • What is a fiduciary? Are you a fiduciary?

    Our firm acts as an Independent Registered Investment Advisor holding us to the standard of Fiduciary. A fiduciary is legally obligated to put the client’s interest first. Similar to that of a medical doctor, RIAs have taken the same pledge to hold the client’s best interest to the highest degree. This allows for our goals and objectives to align perfectly with those of the client’s. As a registerer independent investment advisor, we are held to a higher standard than a typical broker-dealer. Broker-dealer agents (among many other names in the industry) operate essentially as sale’s people for their firm and their firm’s products. By recommending specific products to you as a client, this agent may receive a commission or bonus. When a form of payment is involved for the recommendation of a product, it becomes unclear if the product is quality or if it is being recommended to you for the right reason, creating a conflict of industry.

  • What is a CFP and why is this important?

    CFP stands for certified financial planner and is awarded to those who pass the CFP exams. Holders of the CFP designation are held to a higher standard and regulated by the CFP board. The CFP is not a required exam showing that the achievement for this designation is above and beyond what was required of our team. Becoming a CFP is considered one of the most stringent achievements for a financial advisor. To apply for the exam, you must have years of experience, numerous standardized exams, a formal collegiate level education, and demonstration of strong morals and ethics. We pride ourselves as a team held to these standards.
