Boulder View Capital has adopted a code of ethics that will be provided to any client or prospective client upon request. Our code of ethics describes the standards of business conduct that we require of our supervised persons, which is reflective of our fiduciary obligations to act in the best interests of our clients. The code of ethics also includes sections related to compliance with securities laws, reporting of personal securities transactions and holdings, reporting of violations of the code of ethics to our Chief Compliance Officer, pre-approval of certain investments by access persons, and the distribution of the code of ethics and any amendments to all supervised persons followed by a written acknowledgement of their receipt.

While we do not stake our claim on outperformance, we do believe we can help clients improve their likelihood of achieving their financial goals by implementing a thorough and well thought through financial plan.
