The Liparoto, Hollis and Gibson Group works closely with clients across multiple generations to help them meet the complex challenges of preserving, growing and managing their wealth. As a wealth management team, they are committed to offering exemplary service as they build customized strategies to help clients achieve their financial goals.
Working with families, business owners, retirees and professionals the group starts by listening to the concerns of clients. Each relationship is unique and after uncovering what “keeps clients awake at night”, they construct a roadmap to implement a disciplined strategy. Often times, spouses have separate concerns such as retirement planning. The team is then diligent about addressing these concerns. Once they have prioritized client needs, they can offer customized advice and guidance that is understandable, implementable and trackable.
Understanding that needs evolve over time, the team reviews each client’s goals on a regular basis. Selling a business, welcoming a new grandchild or the loss of a loved one are just a few examples of events that change lives. By coaching clients through these types of events, every member of their team builds strong rapport that deepens the relationship they have with clients well beyond investment decisions. They strive to be the trusted advisor to the families they serve to meet the demands of today’s changing world.
Building, preserving and enjoying wealth can be challenging. The Liparoto, Hollis and Gibson Group believes it is their job to navigate the process. Access to outstanding research, superior investment professionals, a team of internal specialists through Merrill and a dedication to excellence sets this wealth management team apart. By regularly asking clients timely questions and providing meaningful advice, their goal is to continue to earn the trust and confidence of the clients they serve.
As Chris Liparoto explains, “We feel privileged to work with many successful families and are honored to help guide them on their journey to financial independence. We look forward to learning about the financial challenges that face us in the future and being a part of the solution to overcome them.”
