Utilizing a team approach, Felton Wright, Amy Eaton, Jamie Wright and Tony Guerra along with Client Associates Naomi Cook, Dawn Orocio, Brooke Lawrence and Kim Ritchey are able to focus on every aspect of a client’s financial life. Serving high net worth individuals and small businesses around the country, the team concentrates on investment management, estate planning services, asset preservation, retirement planning, and tax minimization strategies in collaboration with your tax professionals.
Whether a client is a small business owner, working professional, or retiree, the team understands that each client requires an individually crafted and actively managed portfolio to meet constantly changing financial needs. The team often collaborates with a client’s CPA and attorney to help ensure that issues that could affect a client’s wealth management plan are identified. When constructing portfolios, the team believes that every portfolio should match the asset allocation with the risk tolerance of each client in order to attain set goals.
With every client, the team comes together with over 100 years of combined industry experience to help meet set goals while striving to maintain the highest service standards. Felton is proud that the team’s growth has almost entirely come from referrals from existing clients. Wright & Associates frequently works with third and fourth generations of families, as the team has become a trusted part of their lives.
