Littlewood & Associates Wealth Management

At Littlewood & Associates Wealth Management, we strive to create an exceptional client experience, from wealth planning and strategy through investment management and service. We believe we foster a different kind of mindset - one wholly dedicated to advancing the best outcomes for the clients we serve.

Speak to us for a few minutes, and you will notice something different. We are resolutely focused on a client's goals and continually strive to exceed expectations. We feel few teams have the experience, know-how and resources to manage wealth the way we do. We are keenly attuned to what matters to you - your objectives and needs, values and priorities. Our work ethic and commitment are the best testimonials to our focus on you, your family, and your business.

In a financial world marked by change - in markets, regulations, opportunities, and challenges - we look to promote consistency, dispel confusion, and design a personlized path for each family. We believe the principles we work by are as valuable to you as the talent and experience we bring to your portfolio. We are proud of the fact that we are restless in our quest to help you, utilizing our team's complementary skills and strengths. Clients work with us from cities and towns in diverse parts of the United States. Our network of Advisors and Client Associates collaborate to serve as your "go-to resource," whatever the financial issue or need.

A Tailored Wealth Management Process

We offer a holistic approach to your financial life. We focus on obtaining a 360-degree view of your financial vision and lifestyle to develop a clear picture of your wealth.

Although your wealth has different purposes or uses, all its parts need to work together in a coordinated way. That's the goal of the integrated wealth management strategy our team will prepare with you. You'll find that your key concerns are taken into consideration—including your assets, understanding of risk and time to various milestones—and we help build your strategy by recommending actions that incorporate your management needs, liquidity needs, time horizons, expectations and tolerance for risk. We also look at what refinements can be made to your wealth outlook and what changes can better position your assets for tomorrow.

On your instruction, we'll help you put into motion the strategy and tactics developed regarding cash management, investments, trusts and more as well as provide you with access to Bank of America's credit and lending. You will receive monthly statements of your transactions and holdings and we will reexamine your overall strategy to help you stay current, timely and on target.

A Flexible, Coordinated Strategy

Wealth is complex and demands constant attention, care and skill. We understand what it takes to build substantial wealth and preserve it. Our recommendations and strategies are developed with great care and thoughtfulness. We believe you will find we put in extra time and effort to develop those recommendations and strategies because we know how important they are—and will continue to be.

We carefully consider a global range of investments based on their risk, price and utility toward your goals. This approach allows us to respond quickly to market opportunities and upheavals as needed, and examine your overall strategy to help you stay current, timely and on target.

Custom Strategies for High-Net-Worth Clients

Our mission is to develop custom strategies with high-net-worth clients and help them pursue their goals. We offer clients long-term financial advice and guidance to help them gain clarity in their financial lives.

In addition to wealth management and investment advice, we also offer estate planning services, and strategic guidance on retirement and wealth transfer, business sale or purchase, and financial strategies for dealing with family changes.

Littlewood & Associates Wealth Management can bring you access to the banking convenience of Bank of America and the investment insights of Merrill. We welcome the opportunity to show you firsthand what we do and how we do it for some of the most affluent families in North Carolina—and around the country.
