More About Our Team

Our team is a dynamic group of forward thinking professionals that want to give you confidence in the financial decisions you make.  We believe it’s our job to simplify the complex, provide transparency to opaque products, and provide financial well being.  Our philosophy centers on knowing our clients and paying attention to the details that matter – understanding “why” they are investing.  We take joy in watching clients use their financial resources to fulfill their dreams.


Our complementary skills match the diverse needs and backgrounds of clients looking for both financial guidance and a modern full service banking experience.  By running our team similar to a boutique within a larger institution we’re able to offer the services of a Global Institution with the touch and personal attention our clients expect.


With both domestic and international experience our credentialed team focuses on providing custom strategies free from proprietary products.  We guide clients using data driven analysis coupled with behavioral finance to blend the “art and science” of investment management.  This disciplined approach provides a framework to guide clients of each generation of a family with different levels of experience.

Our Capabilities

We understand how it feels to navigate the complex financial decisions successful people need to make. We believe nobody should have to make these complex financial decisions alone.  The disciplined approach we walk our clients through is shaped by our decades of experience as well as the designations and education we’ve achieved. 

We focus on three key areas with our clients: Planning, Investing, and Lending:

 
Planning

The markets and financial media can be a cacophony that derail even the smartest people.  We help our clients cut through the noise with a detailed financial road map so you can remain focused on the big picture – your long and short-term goals rather than market fluctuations. While we utilize sophisticated tools, we clarify the information for each client to one page so the path to success is clear.  We call this tool a Wealth Outlook.  For clients with specific lifestyle goals this tool brings confidence to their ability to achieve their dreams.

For those with a higher net worth we also offer access to the Trust and Estate specialists of Bank of America Private Bank for more complex wealth management planning, corporate trustee services, and our philanthropy center.

Investing

We believe in preserving and growing the wealth of clients over time.  Asset allocation and being properly diversified is the most important determinant of investment performance for clients.  This is why we meet at least annually with each client to help ensure their goals and allocation are in sync.

For implementation we provide our clients with access to best in class investment managers, Mutual Funds, and Exchange Traded Funds (ETF’s).  Where appropriate we also utilize Private Equity, Real Estate, Hedge Funds, and Market Linked Notes. 

Lending

We offer a customized approach to meet the unique financial needs of wealthy clients. Using a broad array of assets as collateral, including liquid and non-traditional assets, loans can be personalized to each client's specific goals and objectives.  Whether it be to purchase a business or commercial real estate, a yacht, airplane, artwork, or multi-million dollar home or just bridge cash flow needs; we have customized lending solutions from Bank of America to meet the circumstance.




*Some or all alternative investments may not be suitable for certain investors. Certain alternative investments carry significant risk and are not subject to the same regulatory oversight as mutual funds and other traditional investments.  For these reasons, access to alternative investments may be limited to investors who are designated as sophisticated, high-net-worth investors.
