Our Investment Philosophy
Risk management is fundamental to successful investing. We concentrate on preserving wealth while seeking investment opportunities that have the highest potential relative to underlying risk. We use traditional and alternative investments in building portfolios tailored to client goals. As a Private Banking and Investment Group team, we integrate sophisticated solutions based upon the clients risk tolerance, time horizon, liquidity needs and overall investment goals which many are limited to affluent and institutional investors.
The Bollenbach Team works with affluent families to establish and maintain a pragmatic approach to wealth management. By harnessing the global power and renowned capabilities of Merrill Lynch and Bank of America, we address the needs of clients and their families. We focus on developing financial strategies that integrate professional goals, estate planning objectives, family dynamics, time horizons, lifestyle needs, and other personal factors. Our ultimate aim is to achieve a streamlined, thoughtful, and disciplined wealth management strategy that defines specific financial objectives and provides a road map for their attainment. We advise a handful of investors who are Fortune 500 executives, entrepreneurs, private investors, family businesses, and entertainment personalities.
