Wealth Management

Having financial goals is one thing, having a comprehensive wealth strategy is another.  We help people build and execute a more complete strategy that can provide them with confidence in their financial outlook.

The Wheel Landry Newman Group


To our team being advisors means more than just picking investments, it's about walking the path of life with clients. It means serving as a trusted and essential guide to a select group of clients who need an advisor team with a passionate commitment to go beyond what is expected from investment advisors in order to protect and advance their financial interests. It means getting to know them, getting to know their families and providing them with the proper guidance needed to make a difference in their lives.  To that end, we have developed a systematic "lifestyle management" practice that thrives on deep relationships and a collaborative spirit to guide clients through actual or anticipated wealth creation events; such as, the sale of a business, a new or extended player contract, book advances, a legal settlement, inheritances and the like.

Who are these clients?  Clients have a variety of backgrounds, they are entrepreneurs, business owners, athletes, consultants and families who have garnered wealth and prefer to offload much of the responsibility of managing that wealth to trusted professionals. 

What can these clients expect?  While each client has their own specific needs and goals, the process is the same; i.e., build a personal wealth outlook that encompasses savings and investments, expense management, outside business interests, lifestyle continuance, career transition planning as well as other important life events. This process and outlook serves as the basis for safeguarding and maintaining client wealth throughout their lifetime.

Why do we do this?  Because we get a tremendous amount of satisfaction from being the trusted financial advisors that assist clients in achieving fruitful and rewarding lives. Additionally we enjoy meeting new people and learning about their successes. What about other advisors?  We work collaboratively with agents, business managers, accountants, attorneys and other advisors that a client may have in order to best serve the client.

Why should you choose the Wheel, Landry, Newman Group?  Collectively we have nearly 70 years of industry experience encompassing both personal finance, as well as, institutional markets.  Additionally we know what it's like to invest in private offerings, utilize alternative investments, walk factory floors, procure and establish supply chains, as well as participate in high level college and professional sports. 

Why is this important?  These experiences give us a rich knowledge and a keen sense to source and problem solve almost any scenario; thus making it easier for us to be an essential resource to our clients. Our knowledgeable and dedicated staff prides itself on the delivering highly personalized service you can trust and rely on.

Working With Us

Our clients come from various backgrounds, including professional athletes, medical professionals, business leaders and entrepreneurs.  They have demanding schedules that are dedicated to their family, careers and community so it's only natural that they want to ensure that their wealth is being overseen with the same diligence that they bring to their professional lives.  Often they neither have the time nor desire to personally make investment, tax, estate or other financial decisions without professional assistance.

Many of our clients are introduced by word of mouth from existing clients, accountants and attorneys who have found trust in our core values of integrity, consistency and diligence.  We are based in Vermont and work with clients across the United States.  Please contact us to learn more about our process or to schedule a meeting.

Practice Areas of Note

Our Philosophy

We believe wealth management is about far more than investments. Built around your life and your priorities, it should organize your entire financial life into a fully coordinated strategy. We guide clients through a step by step process to help make that happen. Our process is equally important to help ensure that your strategy is managed with consistency and diligence.

With the right collaboration and process, you can achieve a more complete wealth strategy. A holistic approach to your financial life can be complex, but our process can help you connect all the dots and guide you each step of the way.

Our Process

We’ve seen the importance of a defined process while working alongside clients at all stages of life.  Your planning needs can evolve and grow more complex over time, requiring your strategy to proactively adapt to life’s changes.  Our process helps ensure that we address our seven key elements of wealth management on a regular basis.

Throughout our process, we believe you should have a clear view of:

  • Your entire financial picture,
  • Your needs and objectives,
  • A custom strategy to connect all the dots.

Our process is truly customized, including:

  • Both sides of your balance sheet,
  • Retirement, tax, and estate planning services,
  • Investment and risk management,
  • Philanthropic aspirations and more.
