Harbor Oak Group new 2 resized.jpg

Morgan Stanley has developed widespread capabilities to help address the many fundamentals of wealth planning. In addition to our group, you also have direct access to a team of dedicated professionals, from experienced trust and estate planning professionals, to Private Bankers, to insurance and long term care analysts, all working together to help develop an integrated financial plan tailored to your unique circumstances. All working closely together, we can establish the appropriate course of action to help you achieve the financial well-being you seek.

Our method is the same for all of our clients: we work closely with them to help articulate their goals and aspirations for themselves, their loved ones, and their businesses. Then we thoughtfully create a wealth management strategy based on their objectives being mindful of risk mitigation, tax issues, and changing economic conditions. We regularly review portfolios with our clients to make sure that their plans are on track towards their goals.
