In the article, which is titled “Where Focus on the Client is Second-To-None,” the writer discussed how and why Marcelo Castro Alves is devoted to running a business that is client-centric. As the article notes, Focus Investment Advisors is a results-oriented company that offers their clients personalized and flexible solutions and investment portfolios.

Alves and his team at the company, which specializes in serving Latin American and European clients with offshore wealth management solutions, work hard to gain the trust of their clients. As the article noted, this commitment has had positive and tangible results.

“In five short years, Focus Investment Advisors has grown from managing $20 million in assets to over $100 million,” the article said, adding that as a result of this performance, the company was nominated as a Five Star Miami Wealth Manager in both 2012 and 2016.

As Alves explained in the article, Focus Investment Advisors does not sell products; instead it focuses on the advisory end of things. He and his team handle and selection of investments with their clients, as well as the portfolio management and asset allocations.

The company also offers guidance in terms of structure, Alves said. For example, if the client will have the account in his or her name, in a trust, an offshore company or a United States company.

“Working directly with your bank or with a broker-dealer, there is always a conflict of interest because they work for their respective employers,” Marcelo Castro Alves said in the article.

“We don’t get paid by the banks and the broker-dealers. We don’t have salaries agreements with them. We work for the client, not the bank.”
