Investment Philosophy

BB&T Scott & Stringfellow is in the service business. As such, Charles provides customized investment services to individuals and families to help them identify and get on track toward achieving their financial goals.

His services are delivered by building long-term personal relationships based on honesty and trust. Critical to the delivery of these services is effective communication. Simple, straight-forward, consistent communication concerning client goals and the progress toward achieving those goals is the key. His mission is to help clients identify and achieve their financial goals by offering customized investment services.

First, Charles identifies the financial needs of the client- what is the client trying to accomplish? Perhaps it is retirement income that cannot be outlived; education of a child or grandchild no matter how much college costs continue to rise; or providing for elderly parents with the ever-increasing cost of healthcare, etc. Whatever the client's goals are, his objective is to establish an investment portfolio to help meet the stated needs.

To do this, Charles conducts a detailed review of the client's assets and a determination is made as to the type of investing that has historically met that particular need. The next step is to clearly explain the details of the investment including how it may meet the client's specific needs. Finally and most importantly, Charles explains the risks associated with the investment, what the investment will not do and the importance of holding the investment over the long-term.


Charles received his MBA from the University of Georgia in 1980, and B.S. in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1977. He is also a graduate of the Securities Industry Institute.
