Inspiring confidence so you can spend less time worrying about your finances and more time focusing on what brings true meaning to your life

Our Story and Services

Our Story & Services

At The Newman Group, we believe true wealth is not only about the size of your bank account; it’s also about the life you live and the people who give your life meaning. Whether you’re a successful professional or just beginning your career, there are relationships, interests and passions that bring you joy. These vital elements should be at the core of your wealth management plan.

Recognized as the “Mother-Daughter duo from Morgan Stanley," we work with women, ranging from millennials to retirees. Each interaction – coupled with our own experience – has confirmed our belief: When it comes to managing wealth, women lack the confidence needed to make sound financial decisions. 

To fill this void, we developed a series of informative programs designed specifically to empower women across generations on how to take charge of their finances. To date, thousands of women in the greater New York City area have attended our programs and are now implementing strategies designed to grow and protect their hard-earned assets.

Getting started is easy. It begins with a conversation. We look forward to speaking with you soon.
