We are proud of our personal commitment to helping clients find broad financial health and security, and we will remain unwavering in our efforts to meet their needs.
Murray McGehrin Group

Working with successful families, businesses, and non-profits, the Murray McGehrin Group’s overarching goal is to simplify the lives of clients while efficiently working to build and preserve wealth. With each new client relationship, we start with who you are and what matters most to you.  From there, we can design and implement an appropriate strategy incorporating the many moving parts of your financial life, including investments, borrowing needs, education planning, and wealth transfer strategies.  

While process oriented and proactive in addressing client goals, we pride ourselves on being accessible and responsive to each client’s ongoing needs. This means prompt responses to each client call or email and a keen attention to detail on all projects.  We appreciate that client trust can only be gained through a high level of consistently excellent service over the long term.

Building Relationships To Last A Lifetime

With increasingly complex financial markets, working with an experienced investment professional is more important than ever. The lessons we have learned during our long tenure in the industry have proven invaluable as we skillfully guide clients through today’s complex, ever-changing investment environment.

Helping you manage your investments is just the beginning. It is our steadfast goal to develop and maintain long-term relationships and be a valued resource for you and your family.

Our diversity of age assists us in effectively communicating with every generation. Sharing similar values, we believe that client education is an important aspect of our responsibility to you and your family. We understand that clients have different levels of investment experience and we help to expand your financial knowledge so you can make objective, informed decisions about your financial life.

Approach

Helping you pursue your goals starts with getting to know you. We will work together to create a financial approach that reflects your investment personality and is built around your life priorities. Our process offers a flexible framework we can call upon to help you identify and prioritize your personal and professional financial goals, including areas such as education funding or your lifestyle in the future. We offer potential solutions to provide the “fit” that may best serve your objectives, risk tolerance, time horizon and liquidity needs. We help you understand fees and expenses associated with your accounts.

Capabilities

Our  process is designed to help deliver a customized, consistent experience to assist clients not only in wealth accumulation and preservation, but in areas that go beyond investments. Our ability to provide access to the investment insights of Merrill, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America Private Bank, and the banking convenience and lending solutions of Bank of America offers a way to help clients manage all of the pieces of their financial lives.
