Schultz Collins, Inc. is an SEC-registered independent investment advisory firm headquartered in San Francisco, California with satellite offices in Washington, D.C. and Towson, MD. Our primary business is the supervision of portfolios for retirement plans, institutions, and individual investors, directly supervising or consulting on approximately $670 million in client assets (as of 9.30.14).
The three principals are Dale Schultz, Patrick Collins and Kristor Lawson, all of whom sit on the firm’s management and investment committees. We registered with the SEC as an investment advisor in 1994, then incorporated and began serving clients in January 1995. The principals and advisors average more than 25 years of investment and financial services experience.
Schultz Collins adheres rigorously to a fiduciary standard, and is nationally known for our expertise on fiduciary issues. We have testified before Congress on 401(k) fee disclosure issues. In addition, our advisors have consulted with various federal government agencies such as the SEC, DOL and GAO on how to improve fiduciary practices. Our advisors have also been appointed to the faculty of the American Law Institute’s Continuing Legal Education program, and have taught at the University of San Francisco and the Wharton School.
Fully owned by the principals, Schultz Collins serves as investment counsel for three general categories of clients: individual investors, retirement plan sponsors, and institutional investors (trusts, foundations, endowments, and corporate accounts).
