Private wealth has always been vulnerable to economic chaos, fraud and institutional instability. As wealth and its service industry become global, bad markets that can erode private wealth may spread quickly and impact individuals, families and guardians of significant wealth anywhere. Protection lies in each wealth holder imposing sound process that remains constant and stable even in perilous times or under dangerous conditions.
Led by Family Wealth Director Eric Wilson, we combine knowledge of the financial aspects of governing and managing family wealth with sensitivity to wealth’s psychological and interpersonal effects. The core of our strategy is its single-minded commitment to client advocacy and to the elimination of potential or perceived conflicts of interest in the execution of the group’s qualitative and quantitative insight.
We believe that our clients deserve a different kind of working relationship with their financial institution – one that you may not have encountered at any other financial services company.
We make this distinction because we recognize that wealth is not an end unto itself. Wealth is merely the means by which you can achieve things for yourself and your family. And while it may seem like a simple equation, we have long understood that for our distinct clientele, governing wealth and the opportunities it may create is anything but simple.
The information on this site helps provide an overview of who we are and what we do. The “Working Together” tab on the left is a great place to get started. If what you see piques your interest, and you find yourself at a point in life where you need another viewpoint, please give us a call to set up a confidential review.
We invest ourselves in our clients every day by helping them frame, and ultimately deliver upon, their legacies.

Joachim Fels, chief global economist for Morgan Stanley & Co. explains why he thinks the second half will be more tame.
• "Q&A: Leon Cooperman" The veteran investor, who has spent nearly a half a century on Wall Street, says much about the current cycle is familiar, despite the extraordinary backdrop. He thinks the current bull market has room to run in both time and price.
