Providing affluent professionals, business owners, and families with comprehensive advisory strategies focused on tax-efficiency and risk mitigation.
Integrity. As Financial Advisors who have attained the Certified Financial Planner® designation, it is at the heart of the service we provide. We pride our business model on two things: empathic personal service complemented by quantitative investment planning.
Authentic communication is the cornerstone of our approach. Over the years, we have been able to build meaningful, family-like relationships by being genuine as well as professional.
Decades of investment and real-world experience, acquired locally and in other cities around the world, enable us to relate to the unique needs of each of our clients - whether they are families who have always lived in Tucson or new executives who have lived abroad.
From individual retirement accounts, 401Ks, 529 plans, to corporate cash management, we help successful individuals and their families meticulously pursue their financial aims; helping them to create, preserve, and ultimately, transfer wealth.
At the Old Pueblo Group, our approach to service begins by getting to know you: listening closely to gain a complete understanding of you and your family’s specific needs, lifestyle, and objectives for the future.
1. LISTENING We listen carefully so we can gain in-depth knowledge of every aspect of your financial life, including cash flow, investments, insurance, wills, trusts, estate plans, and the financial concerns that keep you up at night.
2. FORMULATING Understanding your unique and evolving needs is the most important and ongoing step in our process. With knowledge gained from check-in meetings, we formulate a strategy to help you achieve and protect the outcomes you envision.
3. IMPLEMENTING Morgan Stanley’s Wealth Management Division comprises the majority of the firm’s business. This commitment enables our Group to implement solutions customized to your specific objectives using the firm’s considerable resources and digital tools.
4. MONITORING Achieving your goals requires vigilance and flexibility. We help you monitor your progress and make adjustments as your life evolves and priorities change.
We work with wealthy families and their adult children, entrepreneurs, senior corporate executives and business owners to build, preserve and manage wealth. We have been working with such leaders since we began and understand the sacrifice, discipline and consistency required to be a successful leader, whether that means being the matriarch of a dynamic family or a business owner experiencing sudden wealth.
