Who We Work With

Planning – at the beginning and throughout the relationship – is an integral part of the value we provide to each new client. Our commitment to planning is reflected in the fact that our management fee includes all initial financial planning, ongoing financial planning and investment management services.

To maintain our high level of service and maximize the value of our process, we typically serve new clients with at least $2,000,000 in investable assets under our management.

Prospective clients who do not meet the asset minimum may still work with our team by:

  • Surpassing an annual household income amount of $250,000 (single) or $500,000 (joint)
  • Receiving a referral from an existing client
  • Requesting an exception
