SYKON Capital's Visionary Approach to Wealth Management

In the world of financial advisory services, the quest for an advisor who not only understands your financial aspirations but also genuinely aligns with your values can often feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. Best-selling author and life coach Tony Robbins once posed a series of probing questions designed to help individuals discern the ideal financial advisor. These questions were more than just inquiries—they were a blueprint for uncovering an advisor who transcends the traditional, offering clients a partnership rooted in trust, integrity, and a shared vision of financial success.

At SYKON Capital, these questions aren't just a checklist; they are the very building blocks upon which our financial advisory philosophy stands. In this blog post, we'll not only explore each of Tony Robbins' questions in detail but also demonstrate how SYKON Capital's unique answers transform us into the answer to Tony Robbins' vision of the perfect advisor.

The SYKON Difference:

Question 1: Are you a registered investment advisor?

SYKON Capital proudly holds the mantle of a fee-only Registered Investment Advisor (RIA). But what does this mean for you, the prospective client? It signifies a relationship built on trust and transparency. Our compensation is derived solely from client fees, ensuring that our advice is unbiased and solely focused on your best interests. This is a critical distinction from wirehouses where advisors may be incentivized to recommend specific financial products to meet sales quotas or achieve commission-based compensation. In a world where commission-based models often blur the lines of incentives, SYKON Capital's commitment to fee-only advising ensures that your financial success is our only motivation.

Question 2: Are you or your firm affiliated with a broker-dealer?

Unlike wirehouses that often have dual roles as both advisors and broker-dealers (dual registration), SYKON Capital is independent and unaffiliated with any broker-dealer. While this may seem like technical jargon, it translates into an essential benefit for you. Unlike advisors who may wear multiple hats, potentially juggling between acting in your best interest and serving other vested interests, we remain independent. Our recommendations are untainted by commissions or incentives, ensuring that the solutions we propose are always aligned with your financial goals.

Question 3: Does your firm offer proprietary mutual funds or separately managed accounts?

SYKON Capital doesn't just provide answers; we provide clarity. Our commitment to delivering a personalized financial experience is reflected in our approach to investments. While we do have unique and proprietary process, there are no additional costs for our clients. We believe in tailoring solutions that suit your unique financial journey, free from the burden of proprietary products. Our commitment is to provide personalized solutions that align with our clients' needs and financial goals, without any hidden agendas.

Question 4: Do you or your firm receive any third-party compensation for recommending particular investments?

Imagine an advisory relationship where every piece of advice is driven solely by your best interests. At SYKON Capital, we make this a reality. Wirehouses and large investment firms often receive third-party compensation, such as commissions and bonuses, for recommending specific investments or products. We staunchly avoid third-party compensation for recommending investments. In doing so, we minimize any potential conflicts of interest, ensuring that our recommendations are purely rooted in what benefits you the most.

Question 5: What's your philosophy when it comes to investing?

Investing isn't just about numbers; it's about emotions and the very essence of what makes us human. SYKON Capital recognizes this intrinsic truth. Our investment philosophy is not a one-size-fits-all approach but a highly disciplined strategy that accounts for the emotional rollercoaster of financial markets. Leveraging advanced technology, we personalize your investments based on who you are, how you make decisions, and what truly matters to you. In essence, we create investment solutions that reflect your unique financial DNA by analyzing behavioral patterns and utilizing data-driven insights to ensure that your investments align with your emotional comfort and long-term financial goals.

We believe in our investment process so much, that we invest side by side with our clients. Our employees and partners are invested in the very same strategies that our clients are invested in. While our exact asset allocations are customized for our specific needs, just like for our clients, we are utilizing the same exact tools and tactical adjustments we recommend to our clients. This unique aspect further aligns our interest with those of our clients.

Question 6: What financial planning services do you offer beyond investment strategy and portfolio management?

Financial planning isn't just about numbers on spreadsheets; it's about your life and what you hope to achieve. SYKON Capital embraces this holistic approach to wealth planning. We don't just offer investment advice; we provide a comprehensive suite of financial planning services tailored to your individual needs. Unlike a wirehouse or bank that may offer planning as a way to sell you products, our technology-driven approach goes beyond products. We analyze your financial DNA using data analytics and behavioral insights to tailor a comprehensive wealth plan to your unique needs and values. Our technology is your partner, offering real-time insights, scenario analysis, and personalized guidance on topics most other advisors may not have the capabilities to address.

Our goal is to redefine the wealth management experience.

Question 7: Where will my money be held?

Security and trust are paramount in the world of financial advisory services. At SYKON Capital, your assets are held at reputable third-party custodians like Schwab and Goldman Sachs. Wirehouses often have their own affiliated custodians, limiting your options as a client. What sets us apart is our ability to select the custodian that best suits your needs. While traditional institutions often confine you to a single custodian, we put you in the driver's seat, choosing custodians based on what's best for you.


In your pursuit of the ideal financial advisor, you've discovered the key questions to ask and the answers that distinguish SYKON Capital from the traditional wirehouse and national investment firm model. We are not just an alternative; we represent a paradigm shift in the world of financial advisory services. Our unwavering commitment to your financial well-being is at the heart of everything we do.

As you've seen, SYKON Capital's approach is different in profound ways. We invite you to experience this difference firsthand. Your financial journey deserves more than cookie-cutter solutions and conflicted advice. It deserves personalized guidance that aligns with your values and aspirations.
