We believe we can make a difference in your life

Our extensive experience helps us understand the financial pressures you face--not just challenges you're dealing with in the present, but those that may determine your retirement and lifestyle dreams in the future, as well.

It all starts with you. We have clients--in many cases, multi-generational--who have relied on our advice and guidance for years. We feel we are most effective at helping affluent clients to understand the complex financial landscape they may confront during various market cycles, and we take the time to mentor them through the goals-based wealth management process. 

Even though we have assisted clients in similar situations, we realize that your particular circumstances are unique. We probe to gauge what you may think and feel about investing. We get to know you as an individual--perhaps more so than other professionals with whom you work--which offers us additional insight into your decision making and risk/reward profile.

"Our goal is to understand in great detail where your wealth stands today and where you would like it to be tomorrow. "

Your priorities drive our wealth management approach

Goals-based wealth management is a way that we can help you move beyond stocks and bonds indices so you can evaluate portfolio performance and focus on what matters to you on a personal level. In other words, we can offer an investment approach for you that's customized to address your unique set of concerns and goals, such as a child's education, a new home or income in retirement.

We assist organizations in fulfilling their missions

Our focus is on understanding and satisfying company and employee needs, and helping organizations design a plan that fits their 401(k) and pension plan objectives. We can also provide access to Bank of America and Merrill Lynch Wealth Management resources for retirement plan design, administrative services and record keeping capabilities designed to help each program to work smoothly. We have the experience and knowledge to assist clients with the intricacies and challenges of running a retirement program and to assist employees with key education and information.
