Our Story and Services

Helping Get Moore Out of Your Money

At The Moore Group at Morgan Stanley, we are a seasoned family advisory practice in every sense:

  • We are a mother-son advisory team, offering a unique and personalized approach to investment management and legacy planning. We focus on serving the specialized needs of high net worth families living in Texas and Colorado, as well as across the country.
  • Marie is a Family Wealth Director, a credential achieved by less than two percent of the advisors at Morgan Stanley that provides us with access to exclusive resources at the firm.

With over 50 combined years of experience, we understand the importance of family and the financial freedom to pursue personal interests.

We have acquired the knowledge and skills necessary to serve as your single point of contact for all your family wealth needs.

Above all, we deliver a dynamic, multigenerational approach to wealth management that not only offers continuity, but a balance of perspectives that help you – and your children – make more informed, confident decisions about your wealth now and in the future.

The Moore Factor

When you work with us, you will experience a fully-engaged standard of care that prioritizes your best interests and your level of comfort. We are committed to earning your trust and confidence with a powerful combination of experience, empathy and accessibility.

We look forward to getting to know you and discussing how we can help create the lifestyle and legacy you envision for you and your family.
