About Us

With offices in Walnut Creek, California and Madison, Wisconsin, our diverse team has more than 100 years of combined industry experience. Many of us hold various designations consisting of the following:

• Certified Private Wealth Advisor, CPWA®
• Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor, CRPC
• Certified Plan Fiduciary Advisor, CPFA®
• Accredited Asset Management Specialist, AAMS designations.

Together, we are committed to managing your total financial situation, going beyond the single dimension of investments to integrate all of the pieces of your financial life.

Asset Management

We help clients optimize their investments through low cost, globally diversified portfolios that are regularly rebalanced. Like many endowments and institutions, we believe in the appropriate use of alternative investments such as private equity and commercial real estate to potentially enhance returns and reduce volatility. We also actively employ tax minimization strategies for our clients, many times in collaboration with their tax professional.

*Some or all alternative investment programs may not be in the best interest of certain investors. No assurance can be given that any alternative investment’s investment objectives will be achieved.

Corporate Executives

The corporate executives we serve look to us to help simplify the increasing complexity of their financial lives. We offer advice on their suite of corporate benefits, including:

• Concentrated stock strategies
• Restricted Stock Unit (RSU) analysis
• Option award valuation
• Non-Qualified Deferred Compensation (NQDC)
• Employee Stock Purchase Plans (ESPP)
• Net Unrealized Appreciation (NUA) analysis

Business Owners

We understand that the needs of every business owner are unique. We advise entrepreneurs and private business owners in various ways, including:

• Structuring corporate benefit plans
• Identifying insurance strategies for key employees
• Managing liquidity during the sale or restructuring of the business
