The Foundation Management Group has well over a century of collective experience in helping individuals and institutions achieve their financial objectives through a combination of prudent planning and value investing. Our mission is to be an essential resource for each client.
Our planning services center on Wealth Outlook, a dynamic analysis that we use to conservatively stress test many important goals, most notably retirement. It helps clients determine if they are on track to achieve their goals or if they should consider making course corrections.
Our investment philosophy is based on a systematic-value approach. Markets are not always rational and therein lies the opportunity for patient, long-term investors. Our contrarian stance is deeply inspired by many value-investing luminaries.
We believe it is important that you take positive steps towards your financial future, and that means getting more than just investment advice. We take the time to get to understand who you are, what you hope to achieve and what keeps you up at night. Using an understanding of your life and priorities as a foundation, we can work with you to build a goals-based financial strategy.
Wealth Management is a dynamic, ongoing process. As we focus on you today and help you identify your goals for tomorrow, we can strive to work together throughout life’s ups, downs, triumphs, and transitions. Helping you pursue your goals starts with getting to know you. Our job is to first understand what matters most to you. We will work together to create a financial strategy that reflects your investment personality and is built around your life priorities. We will be here to help you make adjustments to your unique wealth management strategies if and when necessary over time.
Our process is designed to deliver a customized, consistent experience to assist clients not only in wealth accumulation and preservation, but in areas that go beyond portfolio management. Our ability to provide access to the investment insights of Merrill Lynch and the banking convenience of Bank of America offers a way for clients to manage all of the pieces of their financial lives. We can be a financial resource, helping clients with the process of transferring wealth to the younger generation.
Supported by the global resources of Merrill Lynch, our team is comprised of talented and experienced individuals committed to building strong client relationships based on trust and personalized service.

We'll meet with you periodically to review your goals and the progress you’ve made toward reaching them. We'll also discuss any adjustments needed to your financial strategy to help you stay on course.
Your life and goals change. We can help you keep track of these changes so they can be reflected in your financial strategy.
MyMerrill is your destination for access to your financial information, secure communications, and a robust offering of tools and capabilities.
*Peace of mind is an aspirational state of mind that clients hope to achieve. There are no guaranteed results following completion of the Goals-Based Wealth Management process because markets can fluctuate and investments can lose value. Advisors work with clients to help them understand how the goals based wealth management process can help to address their concerns, financial situation and priorities.
Helping you reach your goals starts with getting to know you personally. Through understanding what matters most to you, we can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can we offer an approach that is built around your life priorities and the ongoing advice you need to help you manage fluctuations in the market and changes in your life. Let’s work together to help you achieve your goals.
