About Bionic Capital

Fee-only Investment Advisor

Bionic Capital

Bionic Capital is a full-service, fee-only investment advisory firm. We are small enough to deliver individualized client service and investment portfolios, yet sophisticated enough to create institutional-quality, risk-managed investment solutions.

What We Do

Among our many services, we offer:

  • Customized and transparent investment management
  • Retirement planning including no-load variable annuities and insurance
  • Tax-aware investment strategies
  • Trust investing
  • Options-Enhanced® investing
  • Allocation overlay strategies

We manage nontaxable and tax-deferred retirement accounts, like IRAs and 401ks, as well as taxable individual and trust accounts. When you become our client, we will analyze your current portfolio and work to improve it. Unlike some advisors, we do not automatically sell all your investments and, thereby, create potential tax issues or trading costs. We will discuss with you what we feel are your best options before we implement our strategies and will always try to minimize cost and negative tax effects for you.


Bionic Capital utilizes low-cost ETFs, no-load mutual funds, individual stocks, bonds and CDs, closed-end funds and other publicly-traded investment vehicles. Choosing an appropriate mix of investments may diversify a portfolio and help reduce the risk of loss.

Fiduciary service

Our goal is to help each client succeed. Bionic Capital and our advisor(s) are fiduciaries; we always try to serve the best interests of our clients. We can work within your preferences, whether you need income for retirement or you desire an environment-friendly ESG portfolio.

To discuss your needs and how we may be able to help you, please email us or call 310-734-8500.

Discussion of Investing Risks

The value of an investment may decrease as well as increase. An investor may not receive the amount initially invested, and income, if any, may fluctuate. The value of an investment may be affected by a variety of factors, including economic and political developments, interest rates and foreign exchange rates, as well as issuer-specific events. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future returns.

Potential clients should primarily consider and rely on their understanding of their personal investment constraints and objectives, among other things before selecting Bionic Capital as an investment advisor. Some of Bionic Capital’s investment strategies are only appropriate for investors with a long-term time horizon. Contact Dean Erickson, CFA at 310-734-8500 for a discussion of risks.
