About

William Allan is an investment advisory firm formed in 2004.  Our one and only goal is to assist clients to achieve their investment goal(s) through the growth of their capital.  Today, we work with over 200 clients, including individuals, businesses, trusts, and non-profit institutions.

 

In addition to these past 17 years with William Allan, our investment management experience spans another twelve years as managing members of The Westmoreland Group; an investment group focused on capital growth utilizing the very investment approach that’s at the core of our firm today. 

 

Over the past three decades, we have seen the best of times and the worst of times (i.e., four major market corrections) and are better for it all.  While we can’t predict what will happen over the next three decades, we do have a good sense that we will all be better for it.

 

When we say “we all,” this includes us not just as your advisor but as your fellow investor.  You see, our entire personal net worth (outside of primary residence ownership) is invested in the same investments as our clients.  This only makes sense, right?  To put it another way, we eat our own cooking!
