We have guided clients through a variety of financial challenges. The following examples illustrate the range of issues we have successfully navigated with our clients.
wall street Executive
This client is a successful financial services executive who has worked for various Wall Street firms. She had numerous 401k plans and IRA’s that she wanted to consolidate and have managed pursuant to a long-term growth strategy.
We worked with the client to identify where each account was held and facilitated the transfer of all workplace retirement plans to our firm.
We worked with the client to design and implement an investment strategy to achieve long term growth of capital for her retirement and non-retirement assets.
We also optimized the asset allocation for her existing workplace retirement plan pursuant to her goals and objectives.
Today, for the first time she feels that her financial life is “in order” and that her money is working for her.

Executive at a publicly traded company
Our client owned a substantial amount of incentive stock options and restricted stock grants of his employer’s stock. He and his wife wanted to maximize the value of the options to fund college savings for their two daughters.
We organized the options and restricted stock based on vesting schedules and strike prices. We worked with our in-house equity research analyst that covers this company to implement an option execution strategy that would enable the clients to utilize the options and restricted stock in a timely manner to begin funding college savings plans.
We designed and implemented a holistic financial plan that included using additional options proceeds to fund retirement. The client subsequently requested that we oversee investment portfolios held at other firms which we now manage for long-term growth of capital.
