As the article noted, Focus Investment Advisors is emerging as a competitive leader in the area of private, offshore wealth management solutions. The company, which was nominated as a Five Star Wealth Manager in 2012 and 2016, works primarily with Latin American and European clients with aggregated investment account sizes in excess of $1 million.

As Marcelo Castro Alves noted in the "Wall Street Journal" story, he feels his company has achieved success for a number of reasons, including their independent and unbiased investment abilities, expertise in the area of tax compliance, and client trust and confidence.

"We don't sell products; we do the advisory," Alves was quoted as saying in the article.

In addition, the article noted, Focus Investment Advisors does not offer proprietary investment products but works with a worldwide network of custodian banks to find the perfect investment for each one of their valued clients.

"Because we are independent, we don't work for the banks. We work for our clients. Our main goal is to provide them with worldwide solutions to meet their individual situations and goals," Alves said in the article.

The fact that Focus Investment Advisors would be the focus of such a positive article in the "Wall Street Journal" will not surprise the many clients who have worked with Alves and his team over the years. Since the company first opened about 6 years ago, they have honed their expertise in the areas of private banking, wealth management and investment advisory.
