Financial Planning with the Wave Group

Just as waves are created by energy passing through water, your wealth has been created by the energy you’ve invested in building a prosperous career and a comfortable life for your family. We, as The Wave Group at Morgan Stanley, make it our mission to help you preserve and grow what you’ve worked so hard to achieve for you and your loved ones.

Just as every individual is unique, so should be their wealth management strategy. Through collaboration, we work with you to produce custom tailored strategies that adhere to your values, concerns and aspirations. We initiate every relationship with a conversation, in order to get to know you not just as an investor, but as an individual.

We recognize the importance of asking the right questions and carefully listening to what your requirements are. By understanding your goals and incorporating those goals into a cohesive, personally integrated strategy, we strive to initiate personalized plans designed to help you achieve them. By ensuring equal access to resources available at Morgan Stanley, we strive to add value on both sides of your balance sheet and in every aspect of your financial life.

Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC offers a wide array of brokerage and advisory services to its clients, each of which may create a different type of relationship with different obligations to you.  Please visit us at or consult with your Financial Advisor to understand these differences.

Our Clients


Your Goals and Concerns Change as Life Changes 

Your life is constantly evolving, and the markets are always fluctuating, often in unpredictable ways.  Our purpose is to help you prepare—and plan for—both anticipated and unanticipated events, so you can maintain your financial stability through the highs and lows of life and the ups and downs of the markets. Whatever the future brings, we are with you every step of the way, riding the waves together.

We have been compassionately serving clients in the heart of historic Williamsburg for over two decades. 

We follow a structured yet flexible approach. We start with finding out your needs and goals and then we assess your existing portfolio to see how your goals and investments line up. After we define a strategy combining your both your financial and impact goals. Once agreed on, we implement the strategy and will monitor the impact and results. We check back in with you periodically and will revise our strategy if necessary.

 If you are actively pursuing assistance for effective management of your assets for the future or strengthening and preserving your financial infrastructure, then we look forward to learning more about you and discussing how we can help you achieve your most significant goals.
