Our Process, Your Journey

Your achievements reflect substantial effort.  As your team of advisors, we will work just as hard on your behalf, committing our experience, knowledge and skills to helping you achieve your personal and professional goals. What’s more, we will support you and your strategy by accessing the resources and perspective of one the world’s largest financial firms, Morgan Stanley.

Over the years, we’ve developed a disciplined four-step consulting process to uncover your most important goals, so we may design and implement appropriate solutions to help enable you to achieve – and maintain – financial success. 

Step 1: Foster a deep understanding of your unique circumstances

We’ll begin with an in-depth conversation where we’ll listen carefully to understand what is important to you, your family and your legacy. We learn about the values that shape your decisions and identify any challenges and circumstances unique to your personal situation.

Step 2: Analyze and assess your finances

Next, we’ll review your current and future financial situation, helping to determine the likelihood of reaching your goals and address any potential shortfalls or the impact of unexpected life events. In this step, we may  also reach out to your CPA and estate attorney to understand your existing estate plan, so we can ensure the strategies we recommend are cohesive and fully coordinated.

Step 3: Navigate the financial markets through a tailored plan

Here, we’ll present a tailored wealth management plan with specific strategies designed to help achieve your particular goals. Upon your approval and with our guidance, we’ll set into motion a course of action that strives to align your values and vision.

Step 4: Stay close through an ongoing dialogue and commitment to you

We’ll oversee your progress towards your goals through ongoing calls and meetings. We may recommend adjustments over time, due to changing market conditions or changes in your circumstances, to help keep you on track towards achieving your goals.


Commitment to Excellence

We believe the best relationships are built on trust, understanding and shared values. We also believe a disciplined investment philosophy and process are critical to helping achieve your goals. To that end, we are committed to providing the following core values that serve as the foundation of our practice:

  • A Deep Passion for Helping People. We are dedicated to building longstanding relationships, based on trust and integrity. We do this by working with a select group of individuals, families and nonprofits. We help guide them through each challenge by maintaining a close relationship and providing the experience and strategies in an effort to keep them on course to achieving their specific goals. 

  • A Team Approach. We believe you are entitled to the best advice possible. As a result, we have assembled a group of highly skilled professionals whose number one priority is you. As your wealth managers, we review your complete financial picture and help identify any gaps. When appropriate, we consult with specialists to evaluate your unique challenges and devise specific recommendations.

  • Thought Leadership. We are dedicated to providing current perspectives from industry thought leaders. Our goal is to deliver ongoing, enhanced knowledge about investing effectively domestically and around the world.

  • We Advocate for Our Clients. We enjoy bringing clients together to network and share ideas, which often leads to new business opportunities for both parties. We believe that part of our role is to help facilitate the exchange of ideas and promote the services of our clients. Communication, education and understanding are fundamental tenets of our business philosophy.

  • “High Touch, High Service” Model. Our clients believe, as we do, in the importance of building a longstanding relationship with their wealth management team. They have grown to depend on our proactive, concierge model that is specially designed to ensure every client feels like our only client.
