Managing wealth involves far more than managing an investment portfolio. It begins with developing a holistic, comprehensive understanding of who you are and the financial forces at work in your life. It means helping you understand and respond effectively to these forces. And, of course, it means helping you invest your assets in a way that reflects the realities of your life and the uniqueness of your long term goals.
The Berkheimer Group at Morgan Stanley is committed to building a relationship of trust in which we can work closely with you to help you define your objectives, explore alternatives and choose the financial and investment strategies that are most appropriate for you. As our relationship evolves, we hope you will come to regard us as a valued resource and professionals who can help you make a more informed decision on any financial issue.
Our most important goal: to help you achieve your objectives, providing guidance that helps your wealth do more for you.
