About us

Feuerbacher / Williams Group

The Feuerbacher Williams Group is a wealth management team dedicated to providing independent objective financial advice to affluent families and institutions. We serve 15 institutional consulting clients and 25 high net worth family clients with total assets nearing $3 billion as of June 30, 2016. The success of our team is built around three simple yet enduring tenets: Understanding Your Goals; Stewardship; and Leadership. Whether you are an institution or a multigenerational family our stewardship begins with a deep discussion of your core values, goals and objectives. We view ourselves as stewards of the assets entrusted to us by every client. Stewardship encompasses the ideas of ethical and prudent decision making, objectivity, responsibility and proper governance. Simply stated we put the needs of clients first. In times of market stress too many investors make rash decisions that are fueled by emotion rather than the conviction that comes with a principled academic approach to investing. Grounded in the science of finance our approach allows us to stay the course with confidence as markets fluctuate rising above reactionary thinking. We apply our disciplined approach with diligence accounting for the particular circumstances of each client. By focusing on these three tenets we have promoted client satisfaction and retention which are the most potent testimonials to our work.

Our Dual Focus

Our group is distinctive in its focus on institutions and families, a duality that enables us to transfer and apply best practices within each sphere. We are one of only 20 teams firm wide to be designated as a Global Institutional Consulting Team. We have over 30 years experience in providing consulting services to endowments, foundations, corporate retirement plans, Taft-Hartley plans, hospitals, associations, insurance companies and tribal nations. Our investment recommendations are both time tested and forward looking customized to the needs of each client. We use both passive and active strategies. Individual clients benefit from our experience with institutional clients because we apply the same rigor, discipline and structure in addressing a family’s needs. We provide cash flow and balance sheet analysis to individual clients. We also apply institutional investment processes and strategies to high net worth assets with a focus on tax efficiency. For high net worth families we believe strongly that it is not what you earn, but what you keep.
