...a solutions based Wealth Management Practice, differentiated to the needs of  Ultra High Net Worth Families.







Wealth Management Practice built around a firm understanding of the principles that govern Wealth & Portfolio Management, Planning and Advising. My success is in sustaining long term client relationships and support, integrating planning with the use of a three level approach:

1. Financial, Retirement Income & Investment Planning - a holistic Financial Planning process: comprehensive, instructional, and forward thinking. This drives Levels 2 & 3, and tailors our approach to each client.
2. Wealth & Portfolio Management - fundamental analysis determines the level of equity to fixed-income exposure based on global geopolitical and economic affairs & markets. Technical analysis helps to provide the framework for appropriate investment selections. Portfolios are determined by client’s risk tolerance, goals, and time horizon.
3. Risk Management - seeking to avoid catastrophic losses.

David K. Zirretta, Financial Advisor, has been advising Affluent Families for over 18 years. In general, my principles attempt to produce consistent support and tailored solutions to the individual needs of our clientele and their families

    “What’s Holding It Up?”  A chair or table with four sturdy legs can be remarkably strong and hold much more than its weight. Same thing for the stock market, writes Michael Wilson, chief investment officer of Morgan Stanley Wealth Management. Those who ignore the market’s legs are likely to be too bearish and conservative in their positioning.

    “The Big Debates of 2017”  In this roundup, Morgan Stanley & Co. strategists and analysts offer out-of-consensus views on such major questions as trade policy, drug pricing and whether Japan will be the world’s best stock market this year.

    “The Case for Active Management”  Since the financial crisis, passive investment strategies have outperformed active managers. Lisa Shalett, who heads investment and portfolio strategies for Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, thinks the investment environment has changed in a way that will allow active managers to outperform.
