The Hesdorffer Team at Morgan Stanley understands the unique circumstances of high net worth individuals and families with $1MM or more in investable assets.

This husband-wife team knows some clients simply want to get to the finish line and retire with the knowledge they can really afford to do so. Others are philanthropically minded and want to leave an imprint on their community. Still others are more concerned about leaving a legacy to their grandchildren and perhaps passing on their values along with their assets.

For more than 27 years, Jay and Marietta Hesdorffer have helped a wide variety of clients reach a wider variety of objectives. Today the Hesdorffer Team is four professionals strong with more than 90 years of combined experience. *

Our process is thorough and straightforward:

  • Review your cash flow, income tax information and estate structure,

  • Customize your asset allocation

  • Provide ongoing review and monitoring

  • Provide comprehensive performance reporting and ongoing communications

  • through regularly scheduled meetings both in person and by phone

To execute your customized asset allocation, we may combine a professionally managed approach that can include third party investment managers, mutual funds, exchange traded funds and alternative investments, as well as individually selected stocks, bonds and even annuities. Each plan is created specifically for your unique circumstances, objectives, time frame and comfort level. We have no allegiance to any particular investment or management organization. Our commitment is to you.
