Working to help you align your wealth with your values.
The Pacarro Group is a Hawaii-based, multi-generational wealth management team serving a select number of professionals, families, businesses, and non-profits. Our goal is simple: to serve as your trusted advisor, through every stage of life so that you can look to the future with anticipation rather than apprehension.
Our goal is to be an essential advisor to our clients by bringing our experience and a vast array of resources to the table. While each relationship is unique, our style is reflective of three core principles:
Collaborative Approach: We rely on an interactive wealth planning process that begins with listening. With a complete understanding of your current picture and future goals, together, we can agree on a concise plan of action.
Comprehensive Solutions: Our approach to investing is based on a clear philosophy, and is tied to your stated goals and plan. Working with your CPA and Attorney allows us to do our best work.
Personal Attention: An approach to service that demands the highest standards of accessibility, availability, and responsiveness.
Our Global Effort
“For us at Morgan Stanley, it is abundantly clear that the solutions to global challenges can only achieve the required scale if they can attract a critical mass of private capital. To this end, we’ve established the Morgan Stanley Institute for Sustainable Investing to lead work across our firm, with our clients, and with academic institutions to help mobilize capital to sustainable enterprises, via global markets and the investors who drive them.”
- James P. Gorman, Chairman and CEO, Morgan Stanley
