Why ThomasPartners® Strategies?

When you realize your investments must cover most of the expenses you have today, maintaining your lifestyle in retirement can seem challenging. Greg Thomas, founder of the ThomasPartners strategies, faced this when he reached his own retirement. Like most retirees, he started questioning his financial readiness. His quest to find answers led him to create ThomasPartners strategies.

Today, over 15 years later1, our focus remains the same by helping you achieve and maintain the retirement you want through income-oriented strategies that meet your needs today and in the future.

ThomasPartners Investment Management (ThomasPartners) is a division of Charles Schwab Investment Advisory, Inc.

“When I retired in 1992, I knew exactly what I wanted from my investment strategy: dependable, regular income. And income that kept pace with inflation. I found, though, that typical strategies could deliver one or the other but never both. And that got me thinking.”

—Greg Thomas, Founder and Chief Investment Strategist, ThomasPartners Strategies

One philosophy, two approaches.

ThomasPartners offers two different investment approaches that share a similar philosophy: Dividend Growth and Balanced Income strategies. All ThomasPartners portfolios strive to deliver a reliable source of income to help you reach and maintain your retirement goals.
