The Moon Group, Private Wealth Advisors

'We work with senior executives, entrepreneurs, and private equity partners who demand a different echelon of wealth management strategy and service.' - Robert Moon

The Moon Group

The Moon Group is a wealth management team that focuses on the needs of ultra-affluent executives, entrepreneurs, and private equity partners located throughout the United States. As members of the Private Banking and Investment Group at Merrill Lynch, we serve a select group of clients who demand in-depth knowledge, high touch service, and an unwavering focus on their financial priorities.

Structured to Perform

The founder and leader of our group, Robert Moon, built our team to respond to the particular challenges and opportunities of significant wealth. We exclusively serve ultra-affluent clients, so we are deeply entrenched in the nuances and subtleties that substantial wealth can entail. We differentiate our service through our insight, professionalism, and refined processes. Each member of our team has a distinctive role and we carry out our responsibilities with precision. The clients we serve are busy, accomplished professionals; they look to us to manage their financial affairs with the meticulous service that is the hallmark of our practice.

Attuned to Client Needs

We have significant experience in addressing distinctive client needs:

  • Senior Executives

    We design concentrated and restricted stock strategies that seek to inject negative correlation within a client’s investment portfolio. We also perform option and benefit analyses.

  • Entrepreneurs

    We coordinate pre- and post- liquidity event strategies to help families retain more of their wealth through tax sensitive investment, wealth transfer, and philanthropic initiatives.

  • Private Equity Partners

    We have an extensive network that facilitates our role as a conduit for deal generation, idea exchange, and relationship management.

  • A Single Source for Cohesive Wealth Management

    We offer integrated wealth management strategies and family office services:

  • Investment management
  • Wealth transfer
  • Cash flow analysis
  • Customized credit and lending
  • Luxury good acquisition
  • Philanthropy
