Frequently Asked Questions
If you have investable assets combined in excess of $500,000, we would love to talk with you. While we would love to be able to serve all investors, we feel that $500,000 is a good level that matches most of our customer’s cumulative portfolio levels.
At Damon Vickers and Company, our goal is to effect trades on behalf of our clients in an active manner as to seek to minimize losses and maximize gains. We are not passive. Passive asset managers fee your account and do little for it. Our goal is to actively position you long, i.e. owning the market in up-trends, and try to actively position your assets to benefit from downtrends. If we do something in your account, you will pay us. If we do not, you will not. Passive asset managers charge and do nothing. We believe our service is superior, and you may be pleased over time.

Our goal is to try and find the very, very best ideas possible. Sometimes, the market is full of great ideas. During periods like these, we want to do everything possible to take advantage of the bounty that the market offers us.
Other times, no matter how hard we try to find ideas, they don’t exist. We are comfortable at times like these sitting on cash, knowing that inevitably the market will come to us. In short, if we have ideas, we’re going to trade them. If not, we’re comfortable waiting until they do.
