Our Services

Wealth Management Group is comprised of experienced independent financial advisors and dedicated professionals who left the larger Wall Street Firms to form a company that provides objective, custom-tailored solutions to the clients we serve. We are different in that we are a family office – and the clients we engage become part of our family. We don’t focus on products for retirement, but first a strategy that aims to get you retired, and stay retired. Through hard work, discipline, and a commitment to always putting our clients’ interests first, we focus on investment management, retirement strategy, cash flow, tax, estate, and retiree health care. Our clients stay with us because we have conversations that run deep, way beyond how stocks perform.

Our mission is to guide you towards making the right decisions for your financial future.

Investment Management


The number and diversity of investment choices available today are staggering. The days of simply buying and holding a portfolio of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds are long gone. Now, you must choose from dozens of asset classes with broad diversification that may help protect your portfolio against today’s extreme market volatility. 

Here is a look inside Wealth Management Group’s investment strategy to identify the best options for your investment and retirement goals. 


Turmoil in the worldwide financial markets has reiterated the need for diligent risk management. A managed account allows us to more effectively monitor the risk level in the market. When we believe the risk is too high, we have the capability to take action to try to mitigate your exposure.

As investment analyst Louise Yamada said, “There are two kinds of losses. A loss of capital and a loss of opportunity; but there will always be another opportunity if you protect capital.” We are very conscious of trying to protect your money during times of anticipated negative volatility. That way, we will have capital to invest when new opportunities arise.

There is no guarantee this strategy will meet its objectives. The strategy does not guarantee a profit or guarantee protection against a loss. The “right” entry or exit point is not guaranteed.


Using a managed account; you’ll gain access to a broadly diversified list of asset classes and investment sectors. Since our worldwide economy is dynamic, this list of investment options changes on a regular basis. We are continuously monitoring the investment landscape to try to identify tomorrow’s winners today. Here are just a few examples of asset classes and investment sectors that are part of our investing universe.

Financial Planning


Our financial planners will develop a comprehensive wealth accumulation and preservation plan that best addresses your financial needs and goals, spanning across tax planning, asset allocation, investment research, and estate distribution.  


Our risk management team will evaluate your non-financial risks, such as umbrella coverage, long term care coverage, life coverage, and medical coverage to be sure the unexpected does not put a halt on your future retirement.


Our business planning professionals will consult with you to evaluate or establish employee retirement plans, executive compensation, and business buy-sell strategies. We will meet with you and/or the key team members of your organization, on a complimentary basis, to explore how we can best meet your needs.
