There are two kinds of people out there. Those that plan by “design” and those by “default”. As Certified Financial Planners, we ensure every client plans their financial life by “design”.

Our Story and Services

How We Work With Our Wealth Management Clients

Our team's three Certified Financial Planners (Gregg, Michael, and Jason) focus on providing comprehensive wealth management and financial planning services to a select group of clients based in both New England and across the country.   We take a holistic approach to our planning process by incorporating all aspects of your financial life to truly understand the best way to make your assets work for you. 

Our four step wealth management process begins with a detailed discussion of your overall financial picture, including your current and future financial goals and objectives.  We focus on what is important to you; achieving a comfortable retirement lifestyle, planning for your children’s college education, ensuring that your estate plan is in line with your goals, providing for your significant other in the event of death, disability or long term care needs, managing the liability side of your balance sheet, or reviewing your current investments and recommending an appropriate asset allocation.  We believe that this conversation is the foundation for understanding our clients’ desires and developing a plan that is tailored to their needs. 

Taking our initial conversation into consideration, we will work with you to develop a written plan that is designed to help meet your short and long term financial goals.  We will provide you with specific investment and planning recommendations to demonstrate the value we can add to your situation.

On a regular basis we will work with you to review your investment performance and make necessary adjustments to your financial plan.  We recognize that your life is a moving picture and that your financial plan should be revisited to reflect any changes that may occur.

Wealth Management Services

As Certified Financial Planners we believe that everybody has a financial plan, either by design or by default.  We work with our clients to develop a comprehensive plan by design that is disciplined and covers all aspects of their financial life.  Whether you are a business owner, retiree, or corporate executive, our team will take the time to understand your unique situation and customize a plan that complements your life.

Our interactive financial planning tools allow us to work with you in person or remotely to review and update your plan.  Planning to retire soon?  Contemplating purchasing a new home?  Evaluating the sale of your business?  We will work with you to model the effects of your decisions and help determine the best course of action for your financial future.

The FT 400 is based in large part on data gathered from and verified by broker-dealer home offices, and, as identified by the FT, reflected each advisor’s performance in six primary areas, including assets under management, asset growth, compliance record, experience, credentials and accessibility.  The rating may not be representative of any one client’s experience and is not indicative of the Financial Advisor’s future performance.  Neither Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC nor its Financial Advisors or Private Wealth Advisors pays a fee to The Financial Times in exchange for the rating.

Five Star Professional, as a third party research firm, identified pre-qualified award candidates based on industry data and contacted all identified broker dealers, Registered Investment Advisor firms and FINRA-registered representatives to gather wealth manager nominations. The Award does not evaluate the quality of services furnished to clients and it is possible that the recipient may have received unfavorable ratings from those surveyed.

Wealth managers and/or their firms do not pay a fee to be considered or placed on the final list of Five Star Wealth Managers.
Working with a Five Star Wealth Manager or any wealth manager is no guarantee as to future investment success, nor is there any guarantee that the selected wealth managers will be awarded this accomplishment by Five Star Professional.

Corporate Executive Services

The Bonheur Scott Traino Group focuses on working with executives of public, private, and venture backed companies. We understand the demands of running a company often don’t leave time for you to ponder your personal balance sheet and the complexities that wealth can bring.

Our clients often have unique challenges such as hedging and diversifying concentrated positions of company stock, determining the best time to exercise stock options, making elections around restricted stock grants, efficiently transferring wealth to the next generation, and fulfilling charitable inclinations.

We simplify our executive clients’ lives by focusing on their financial situation to allow them to do what they do best: run their business.

Institutional Retirement Plan Consulting

The Bonheur Scott Traino group also focuses on consulting with businesses and institutions for their employer-sponsored retirement plan needs. Whether you are evaluating alternative service providers or trying to take your existing plan and simply make it better, we assist you in assessing, analyzing and addressing the specific needs of your plan to help maximize its value to your employees and organization.

We consult for over 90 different retirement plan clients where there are typically 6 key areas of focus:

1. Help in improving participation rates & preparing employees for retirement
2. Ongoing support in understanding, managing and in many cases shifting fiduciary responsibility
3. Knowledge and experience in selecting and ongoing monitoring of plan investments
4. Guidance in evaluating and choosing a record keeper/provider
5. Help in understanding plan fees and expenses
6. Help in analyzing and maximizing plan design

For most of our clients, the 401k plan is only 1 of the many day to day responsibilities they have in their HR and Finance functions. With the ever changing retirement plan landscape, our goal is simplify and tighten up this part of your business.
