The DO Wealth Management Group is committed to helping you in achieving your financial aspirations, goals, and dreams. We believe every client is entitled to the highest level of personalized service and care. We place you at the center of the wealth management process and work together to design a goals-based financial strategy that can assist you in with your financial security and independence.


Thank you for considering The DO Wealth Management Group as your financial advisors. Our team of professionals offers a Goals-Based Wealth Management approach that caters to the specific needs of each client by placing them, rather than the market, at the center of the wealth management process. Leveraging our personal brand of customized service, we focus on developing tailor-made strategies for U. S. and Internationally based families, corporate executives, business owners, and foundations.

With over 40 years of combined experience, our breadth and depth of industry knowledge combined with the global investing resources of Merrill and banking convenience of Bank of America can assist you in reaching your unique vision for financial security and independence


We believe that your unique goals should be the foundation of your financial strategy. We work with a team of specialists and leverage the tools and insights of a global financial institution to facilitate and take care of every aspect associated with the financial lives of our clients.

As wealth advisors, we resist fads and group think, we are relentless in our focus on risk-adjusted performance, and we work diligently to identify managers and strategies that we believe can help deliver consistent, prudent returns relative to a client’s long-term goals.

We believe that while significant wealth brings complex challenges, our experience, passion, and perspectives can help you simplify your life and achieve your most important priorities today, tomorrow, and for many years to come.

Focus On Individuals, Families and Small Businesses

We believe that financial success can be achieved when you’re able to make investment-related decisions and trade-offs that can help you reach personally meaningful goals. Whether you’re planning your retirement, saving to buy a home or funding a child’s education, the process begins by getting to know you and how you feel about the following:

  • Health: Managing healthcare expenses, now and in the future
  • Home: Upsizing, downsizing, remodeling or buying a vacation home
  • Family: Taking care of your family and other people in your life
  • Leisure: Spending your free time in meaningful ways
  • Giving: Volunteering, mentoring others and giving to charities
  • Work: Working in retirement, selling or starting a business
  • Finance: Bringing it all together and defining your financial goals

Success will be measured by the amount of progress you are making toward reaching your goals, making thoughtfully considered adjustments as events and conditions warrant.

Business Owners and Corporate Executives

As an entrepreneur and business owner, you may be thinking about investing in your company’s growth, implementing efficient and innovative management strategies, selling all or part of your business, as well as engaging in succession planning in preparation to transfer your business to the next generation. Our team is dedicated to ensuring the future success of your business by providing a suite of services such as customized lending offerings, retirement plans, employee benefit solutions, and exit planning strategies. 

For corporate executives, we understand the customized estate planning and financial strategies that your wealth and compensation require. We can help you manage the risk of concentrated equity holdings, evaluate prospective benefit and compensation plans available, and navigate complex SEC regulatory related requirements connected to trading and reporting mandated guidelines.

Whether you are a business owner, entrepreneur, or a corporate executive, we offer a series of tools that can help to simplify your wealth management needs, and assist in developing short and long term strategies to benefit you and your loved ones.
