Wealth Management
For successful clients in all walks of life – and life stages – we dedicate ourselves to putting their wealth to work.


Our mission is to understand you and your priorities. To take the time, to ask hard, smart questions and to listen carefully, then to understand, in great detail, exactly where your wealth stands today, and where you'd like it to be tomorrow. We help you design, implement and periodically monitor a customized wealth management strategy that helps you and your family pursue your personal financial goals while managing investment risk. Our wealth management approach is about using wealth to help turn goals into reality.

What We Believe

At The Albertini Hargate Wealth Management Group, we believe that many people don’t realize the true scope of a 360-degree wealth management strategy – or the potential benefits of having one in place.

Rather than simply apply our skills in managing your investments, we look “beyond assets and beyond you, the primary client” to appreciate your full financial picture and your aspirations for loved ones.

To consistently satisfy your best interests with best practices, we also believe that:

 • It’s our job to help you articulate your goals – as part of a clearly defined process that continues over time. By being proactive and analytical, we can also identify areas of your financial life that require attention – to help you anticipate and add stability to your wealth.

 • Even the most complex strategy should be explained in simple terms. We’re not here to prove how much we know. We’re here to provide thoughtful strategies that can enhance your financial and emotional wellness.

 • Managing your portfolio demands our use of internal and external research, as well as the firm’s due diligence. With no proprietary investments, your portfolio would include what we believe will most precisely fulfill your long-term goals, risk tolerance, investment timeline, and need for liquidity.

 • You can benefit from our collaboration with you and your other trusted advisors. By coordinating with your CPA and attorney, we can align efforts and improve the results of tax minimization and estate planning strategies.

 • Clients value our devotion and integrity, just as we value our relationships with them. In many cases, we serve grandparents, parents and children. It feels good to help client families enjoy positive, real-world outcomes.



What Clients Can Expect

At The Albertini Hargate Wealth Management Group, we work hard for clients – just as they’ve worked hard for others.

As goals-based advisors, there’s no formula for our process or for the strategies we recommend. By gaining a real appreciation of where you stand (financially and personally), what’s on your mind, and where you’d like to go, we can help you “see around corners” and plan for what comes next. Getting to know you is not a one-time event. We enjoy talking with clients and we look forward to talking with you.

On a given day, we can help you examine ways to send a child or grandchild to college, preserve financial independence as you age, generate income in retirement, purchase a second home, transfer wealth more efficiently, prepare for a liquidity event, direct capital to influence society, or just have a better grasp of Social Security benefits.

Whether we engage with you and your spouse, your children or elderly parents, “providing education” is something we try to accomplish with each interaction. In fact, the hallmarks of our strongest, most enduring client relationships are mutual respect, candor and trust. In the spirit of a fully transparent relationship, we discuss investment pricing and costs with you, in clear terms.

By bringing you our complementary experiences and skillsets – and integrating liability management, tax minimization and estate planning strategies with risk-managed investing – we can fulfill our mission of “putting your wealth to work.”

    *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. Merrill Lynch Wealth Management 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.

    Let’s Have a Conversation

    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.
