Dwyer and Associates

The diversity of our team reflects the diverse backgrounds of a world class clientele. Our ages and experiences help us deliver what I call 'modern private banking': actively addressing the fluid needs of a select circle of male and female CEOs and entrepreneur as well as traditional and nontraditional families (many first generation American).

As a member of the Private Banking & Investment Group the Dwyer Group offers active and passive management with no proprietary products. To serve those who demand uncompromised service and financial acumen we offer a tailored experience providing unwavering attention and access to a full complement of services from Merrill Lynch. Clients deserve to know they are making optimal decisions for those they love.

We know how to help ultra high net worth clients whether we recommend where to purchase an aircraft or help them buy a home in France. Being 'all in' we value our close relationships with clients and share their joy in enhancing their lives.

Investment Philosophy

Asset Allocation

How you deploy investment capital across asset classes is one of the most important determinants of investment results over time. Strategic and tactical asset allocation is a central element of our investment advice and guidance.


We believe that diversification across global asset classes, investment styles, sectors and industry groups is fundamental to long term wealth creation and portfolio risk management.

Tactical Shifts

On occasion we may guide you in making some tactical changes to your portfolio. Tactical asset allocation is designed to capitalize on short term market deviations by overweighting or underweighting certain asset classes relative to associated benchmarks.

Our Relationship With You Is Highly Personalized and Proactive

We are not a mass market retail type wealth management operation; we maintain a high ratio of professional staff to clients. We meet regularly with each client to review investment performance, portfolio rebalancing and current strategy to plan for their future needs. We tailor day to day private banking services including credit facilities, secure web based bill payment services and individual client preferences.
