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 planning & estate strategies, and retiree health care planning. 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

TAILORED SOLUTIONS TO MEET YOUR UNIQUE GOALS

Our open architecture investment platform allows us to invest in active and passive solutions as well as public and private investment vehicles.

We have a range of solutions and partners in the industry that enable a tailored set of solutions to serve our clients’ goals.

LONG TERM FOCUS

We focus on delivering returns with long-term growth potential using tried-and-true principles and positive business perspectives rather than short-term growth influenced by market noise.

EFFECTIVE RETIREMENT INCOME

We utilize 21st century investment strategies that are built to address the challenges of historically low interest rates and rising life expectations.

RESEARCH-DRIVEN PROCESS

We use an intensive decision-making process when choosing our investments that stresses a deep understanding of the underlying business to identify all potential risks. Our research focuses on identifying investment themes we believe to be in a long-term positive trend.

ALIGNED INTERESTS

Our employees invest alongside our client’s assets to ensure aligned interests and accountability.

Financial Planning

WEALTH 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.  

RISK MANAGEMENT PLANNING

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.

SMALL BUSINESS PLANNING

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.

Tax Strategies

Wealth Management Group provides a complete array of tax planning services, such as tax strategy and planning, tailored specifically for the needs of high net worth individuals and families.

Estate Planning

What will your legacy be?
