From the CEO

Thank you for taking the time to get acquainted with SmithReed. In

this brochure you’ll find an overview of our services and you’ll meet

a team of experienced professionals with entrepreneurial roots and

accomplished careers.

Our clients generally fall into three categories, families with

accumulated wealth, families who are building wealth, and those who

experience “sudden wealth” through a life event. We take the time to discover the needs of each

family before recommending solutions and can include your attorney or CPA in the planning process.

When families accumulate wealth in excess of their current needs, multigenerational asset

management, defensive investing, and charitable planning may be appropriate. The SmithReed

Family Office can provide the advice and management you need today, and consistent leadership for

your heirs in the future.

High earning professionals and successful business owners can generate income above their current

lifestyle. SmithReed Asset Management can provide advice on a variety of traditional investments

including private equity and real estate. We provide investment strategies, portfolio management,

estate planning, and advice on both career changes and exit strategies.

For those who find themselves “suddenly wealthy”, maintaining wealth can be a challenge. A legal

settlement, divorce, or inheritance can create the need for investment counseling, tax strategies, and

estate planning. Maintaining wealth can be more challenging than obtaining wealth.

The past five years have been an exciting time for our company. We’ve managed to grow and evolve

our business in the face of one of the most challenging economic climates in history.

I invite you to experience a different kind of advice.


Mickey J. Smith, CEO




SmithReed Asset Management is a Tennessee Registered Investment Advisor providing personalized financial planning,

fee based investment management, tax strategies, estate planning, and alternative IRA strategies. Our clients include

individual investors, business owners, professionals, corporate executives, retirees, and retirement plan administrators.

Jeff Rummells, David Waycaster, and Karen House provide all advisory services.

Financial Planning and Consulting

SmithReed Asset Management provides planning and consulting services which may include

the following:

• Retirement, education, estate, and tax planning, legacy and philanthropic planning, and

business continuation.

• Collaborating with other advisors on decisions that affect the overall wealth

management plan, including estate planning attorneys, insurance agents, and tax

advisors. SmithReed does not provide legal or tax advice.

• Consulting on any and all financial decisions, as needed, such as a decision to buy or

sell a business, invest in a project, or purchase a vacation home.

Prior to the planning process the client will receive an estimated plan fee. The client will

pay half the fee upon signing the investment advisory agreement and the balance upon

delivery of the completed plan. Financial plans are completed, reviewed by a CPA, and

delivered within 30 days. The client may cancel at any time prior to delivery and receive a full refund.

Planning and consulting services are offered on a negotiable fixed fee between $500 and $2,500, depending on complexity and

unique client needs. Planning and consulting services are also available for $200 per hour.

SmithReed provides strategic consulting services such as the review and evaluation of alternative investments for self-directed IRA

accounts and the evaluation of 401K plans.

Asset Management

SmithReed Asset Management provides discretionary asset management services after consultation with the client and may include the


• Understanding the foundational details of a client’s total financial situation and identifying both short and long-term goals.

• Identifying risk and loss tolerance as a guide for designing an investment portfolio with the appropriate asset allocation strategy.

• Designing and modeling an acceptable portfolio which meets short and long term goals.

• Implementing an investment strategy utilizing a variety of investable asset classes including “institutional” mutual fund shares,

indexed exchange traded funds (“ETFs”), separately managed accounts (“SMAs”), individual securities, and alternative

investments when appropriate. ETFs follow a specific benchmark index as closely as possible allowing the investor to get

exposure to a large number of securities in a single transaction. An SMA is an account

managed by an outside asset management firm along with an administrator, while

alternative investments include hedge or fund of funds, natural resources, real estate and

private equity, which may be more illiquid in nature.

• Monitor, review, and adjust the investment portfolio as goals and objectives change.

Fees may include a percentage of assets under management, hourly charges, or fixed fees.

When fees are charged as a percentage of assets the following schedule applies:

Assets Under

Management Annual Fee

Up to $500,000 1.50% $500,000 - $1,000,000 1.00% $1,000,000- $2,000,000 .90% $2,000,000 - $3,500,000 .75% $3,500,000 - $5,000,000 .60% $5,000,000 + .50%

The SmithReed Family Office was established by Mickey and Pam

Smith to provide business and family management solutions to a

third generation of clients. We serve families who own corporations,

farms, small businesses, commercial real estate, and investment

portfolios. By remaining private we can provide unique family

and business solutions while exploring alternative investment

opportunities such as real estate and private equity.

To meet the growing demand for investment advice and financial

planning, we established SmithReed Asset Management, a Tennessee

Registered Investment Advisor (RIA). An RIA is governed by the

fiduciary standard, requiring a level of trust and care equal to that of

the attorney, CPA, or trustee relationship.

Most successful families will eventually face the challenge of

multi-generational wealth transfer. Closely held businesses, investment

portfolios, and real estate holdings, each require unique planning

and management strategies in order to provide for and protect

future generations. The following services are provided by the

experienced professionals at SmithReed:

“My grandfather always placed the needs of his clients first. His honesty and

integrity inspires us as we serve another generation of clients.”

– Pam Smith

John R. Reed lost his college savings as a result of the banking collapse during

the Great Depression and took a job as a salesman for McKnight-Keaton, a

wholesale grocery company in Sikeston, Missouri. Mr. Reed would ride the

ferry boats across the Mississippi and Ohio rivers in order to call on merchants

in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Missouri. He was promoted to Manager and met

his wife, Dorothy Dudley, whom he married in 1935. Their daughter Marilyn

was born in 1942.

In the early 1950’s Mr. Reed joined the Woodward Hardware Company as General Manager at a salary of $10,000

per year. In 1958 Woodward attracted the attention of larger companies and Mr. Reed advised the owners that

conditions were right for the company to be sold. He traveled to Louisville, Kentucky and negotiated the sale of

the company to Stratton & Terstegge. Stratton & Terstegge later became known as S&T Industries and grew into

one of the largest manufacturing and wholesaling companies in the nation.

With the sale of Woodward complete, Mr. Reed answered an ad in the St. Louis Globe Democrat and was hired as

a stockbroker for Edward D. Jones & Co in 1960. At the time of his hiring, Ted Jones, son of Edward D. Jones, had

embarked on a novel plan to open investment offices

in small towns across the country. At the time Mr.

Reed joined Edward D. Jones & Co., the firm had only

nine offices.

In 1968 John & Dorothy Reed moved to Union City

to establish the first Edward Jones office in the state

of Tennessee. His office consistently ranked number

one in the firm with over $80 million in assets under

management. He became a partner in 1974, hired

and trained numerous investment representatives

including Mickey Smith, who took over the office in

1987. Mr. Reed continued to research investments

and enjoyed trading stocks until his death in 1997.
