Shambo | Schwibner | Schwartz Wealth Management Group

The team was created in 2012 with the sole intent of providing the intimacy and personalized attention of a family office with that of the global resources and support of one of the world’s largest financial institutions. Our 10 member team is dedicated to providing unparalleled service to the select group of families we serve.



Our Approach

We have developed and refined a goals-based wealth management process that evolves over time, aligned with our client’s personal and professional lives. This disciplined, agenda-driven approach offers forward-looking advice and adds predictability to an otherwise uncertain world.

Drawing upon research in the field of behavioral finance we leverage proprietary Merrill tools, such as the Investment Personality Assessment. It assists us in getting to know you better as an investor and to potentially help you refine your own investing preferences. We also build our financial strategies around your goals, utilizing the firm’s Seven Life Priorities framework to identify and prioritize what’s important to you and your family.

Additional Resources

We have access to a wide variety of Specialists, each with a unique skill-set that complements our immediate team members and highlights many of the unique aspects of our thoughtful planning process:

Peggy King, Assistant Vice President, Wealth Management Banking Specialist – Merrill

Mitch Canada,
Wealth Management Lending Officer, NMLS ID 207281 – Residential Lending and Credit- Bank of America

Cecilia C. Remy, Director, Retirement Specialist – Annuities and 529 Plans- Bank of America

Our ability to provide access to the investment insights of Merrill and the banking convenience of Bank of America offers a way for us to work with our families to manage all the pieces of their financial lives. In the end, our team aims to help bring simplicity and transparency to the complexities of finance; making the intimidating task of planning for the future an exciting journey of managing and helping you pursue your goals. When you succeed, we succeed.


Merrill is proud of our advisors who’ve received recognition from financial industry publications or directly from Bank of America Corporation. We believe they are setting the standard for exemplary client service.
