Understanding What's Important to You

Our relationship with clients is based on a simple philosophy—
Ask the right questions, listen carefully to your answers.

Before we can envision what wealth management will mean for you and your family,
we need to learn what is most important to you and your family.

Eric B. Propper, CFA

President

“We can certainly speak about our investment returns and estate planning strategies, but at the end of the day, the most important element of our relationship with clients is serving as their trusted advisor. One way we create and build trust is by considering all family members, their financial commitments and their charitable passions in our wealth management discussions. We believe this dialogue gives clients peace of mind and creates a deep understanding about how we can best serve our clients and their families over time. We are very proud that some of our client relationships span more than 40 years and include four generations. Our business is a relationship business, and these multi-generational families are the types of long-standing clients that really illustrate that point.”
