My Story and Services

My Story & Services

Julie Mamett Shechtman, CFP® 
Senior Vice President, Family Wealth Advisor, Financial Planning Specialist and Financial Advisor at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management

As a seasoned professional in the financial industry with more than 20 years of experience, I provide highly customized advice to corporate executives, business owners and affluent families.  With degrees from Harvard Business School and the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, a decade advising institutional clients at Goldman Sachs, and many years as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner and Wealth Advisor at Morgan Stanley, I offer a special set of experiences and depth of knowledge, empowering my clients to make smart choices about their money.

My role as your Financial Advisor is to help you develop a strategy and lay out a clear path that you can comfortably follow, knowing you are making informed, confident decisions in all market conditions.   Too often fear drives financial decisions and is the major reason why many financial plans fail. I help clients move beyond the noise and stay focused on their plans, goals and dreams.  My comprehensive wealth management approach includes a thorough planning process and a commitment to provide outstanding service and advice.  

As your family’s “chief financial officer,” I help review all aspects of your financial life.  Your wealth management plan will be customized and carefully structured to navigate ever-changing markets.  I provide the personalized service of a small investment boutique yet I am backed by the resources of a major global firm.
