The Gattis Whitmore Group offers advice and guidance to connect your personal goals with financial strategies. We believe our wealth management philosophy is different becuase we place the investor at the center. Our investment approach is customized to help clients address their unique concerns and goals, one-by-one. We follow Merrill's goals-based wealth management process to better understand how individuals think and feel about investing which, in turn, helps us assess the financial resources necessary to pursue each specific goal, such as retirement income planning, education funding and wealth transfer. We know the right questions to ask, we offer access to a global network of specialists and research, and we can create a framework designed to help optimize short- and long-range goals.
It’s important to plan for your financial future, which means getting more than investment advice. We believe you may find value in a one-on-one relationship with someone dedicated to knowing who you are and what you want to accomplish. Someone who knows your kids’ names, how hard you worked to get where you are, how you define a successful life and how you view investing. Our commitment is centered in helping clients achieve their goals by making their needs and wants a priority. Our advice and strategies are guided by what’s important to you, and our success is defined by your satisfaction over time.
You can’t feel good about your finances unless you know exactly where you are, where you want to go, and how much you may need to get there. We work with you to develop a customized financial strategy, drawing on the best thinking of our firm, to help you with your financial future. We will manage all aspects of your relationship, making it clear what you’re paying for and what you’re getting. As your life and the markets change, we will meet periodically to help make sure you’re on track in pursuing your goals and to adjust your strategy as needed for the journey ahead.
We’re fully versed in the many issues that affect wealth management. No matter what your short- and long-term goals may be, we'll begin by getting to know you as we explore the following seven priorities together:
