Our team offers tailored financial planning, retirement services, portfolio management and other capabilities that enable you to engage in a life well lived, knowing that your personal wealth picture is being carefully handled.

A customized approach
As a member of J.P. Morgan Wealth Management’ Portfolio Manager Program, we manage assets on a discretionary basis, and are subject to regular quantitative and qualitative reviews to continuously assess ongoing strategies. This disciplined process enables us to actively manage portfolios for the benefit of individual clients.

We begin by uncovering your specific goals—growth of principal, wealth transfer, philanthropy, lifestyle, retirement. From these inputs, we develop investment strategies that care for the totality of your needs.

Our team selects among equity, fixed income and other securities to create tailored portfolios and manage them in-house. Our conservative approach strives to lessen volatility and generate returns at the lowest risk possible.

Specialized support for the unique needs of business owners
We understand firsthand that as difficult as it is to build a company and amass wealth, it is also a challenge to maintain these assets. Through the capabilities we have honed over many years in entrepreneurial environments, we help introduce you to measures that facilitate a wide range of financial requirements.

Corporate retirement planning—As a core competency, we have industry designations to provide defined benefit plans, profit-sharing strategies and pension funds that help address the accumulation of retirement savings.

Cash flow management—We are skilled in investing short-term cash to generate income streams that care for living expenses, estimated taxes, trust distributions and other payments. We also develop strategies that address the need for differentiated liquidity.

Commercial lending—Through the world-class resources of J.P. Morgan, we deliver lending capabilities to support the acquisition of real estate or to sell and leverage companies.

Business succession—Many business owners want their firms to continue beyond their lifetimes, managed by their children and, possibly, future generations. Drawing on our third-generation experience running a family business, we have the skills to help transform your efforts into a sustainable reality.

Liquidity events—By participating in pre- and post-transaction planning, we help you evaluate the timing and impacts of liquidity events, as well as address tax and other considerations.

Hedging and monetization strategies—Our team recognizes the disquiet that results from having considerable resources invested in a single brand. We work within your risk parameters and individualized requirements to create uncorrelated investment strategies that help diversify away from concentrated positions.
