How we help
Most people find it hard to wrap their minds around the future, especially our greatest fears:
death, illness, and poverty. It's even harder to do what you need to do to protect yourself. One of the most important things we help clients do is talk and think through these fears and take the steps necessary to manage them: buying the right insurance policies, executing estate planning documents, calculating how much money you need to save, and then staying the course in saving and investing. We shepherd our clients through these thought processes and keep them on track to get them where they need to go.
Advanced Planning + Client Engagement + Investment Consulting/Management
Wealth management is the art, science and day-in-day-out discipline of helping clients frame and solve financial and related problems to live better over time. We help clients leverage and husband their wealth, time and energy to optimize their returns on each.

Wealth management is intensely client centric. That means it is all about you. Therefore, exceptional Client Engagement is key to the process. In order to help you achieve your objectives, you will be part of a collaborative process to develop a deep understanding of you—your most critical needs, values, goals, preferences, challenges, concerns and dreams. Client Engagement also entails assembling and managing a network of financial and legal specialists who are ideally suited to address your entire wealth situation—and then working in close collaboration with them on an ongoing basis to provide and implement optimal solutions. Our boutique size and culture – combined with the spirit, fellowship, and character of our fiduciary team – stand in sharp contrast to the repeated breach of fiduciary duty on Wall street and the financial services industry.
