Our approach to wealth and retirement planning is different. We start by understanding your values and capturing what matters to you. Only then can we align your finances.
As one of the more experienced personal financial firms in the Boston area, we believe in improving your life and the lives of your loved ones, not just managing wealth. “Life By Design” are not just words, but what we believe in. Life defined by values, and the goals that come from our values is a basic tenant to the way we think. We’ve got a purpose and a commitment of mission – and we want to change our community, as well as our industry for the better. We are passionate, and we care about reaching more people so we can help them make better business decisions about their money, and live happier lives.
We work with clients to find answers to some of the toughest questions they never thought they needed to ask. We provide clarity, direction, and ultimately peace of mind for clients who own a family business. We are not interested in telling you how to run your business, rather we aim to make sure the business is being run the way you wanted it to back when it was started.Discover Our Breakthrough Methodology
There are many challenges to Family Wealth, and while family harmony really isn’t defined by “wealth,” the more financial assets a family has, the more conflicts seem to be amplified. Interestingly, the process of creating a sustained family legacy, be it about caring for Mom and Dad as they get older, or how and when family members share in the fruits of older generations’ wealth creation, is relatively similar and replicable no matter the family’s size.Learn About Our Philosophy
Long-term investment success means different things to different people. The best investment plan for you depends on your specific circumstances and objectives. That is why we began the investment planning process with a discussion during our Discovery Meeting of your values, goals, relationships, assets, advisors, preferred process and interests. We want to build you a plan to maximize your wealth, not just your portfolio.Consult with a Financial Advisor
