About us

Our Investment Philosophy

The McCauley/McGuirk Group is a leading wealth management team of six highly trained professionals with deep experience in the financial and planning issues that are most important to ultra-affluent families, trusts, and foundations. Located in Boston, we advise approximately 65 families, entrepreneurs, corporate executives, general partners, and business owners located throughout the entire country with an average investable net worth of $25 million. We oversee assets in excess of $1.6 billion on their behalf (as of 1/2/2017). We provide access to the full global resources of Merrill Lynch. The foundation of our client philosophy is to provide the highest level of service in the industry and to execute only the most sound investment strategies custom-fitted to each client.

Our Integrated Approach

We take great care focusing on the asset allocation* process, creating highly customized wealth plans based on the principles of risk management, liquidity, and customized advice. We bring objective, fresh analysis to the multitude of options available to every investor. We believe in the use of non-proprietary money management firms and select them carefully to make use of their skills to invest client funds. Collaboratively, we work with clients to develop the most productive allocation of their assets—focusing not only on the upside potential, but bringing a realistic assessment of the downside risk. With that in mind, we design dynamic plans that can adapt to a family's ever-changing needs. We also offer services to assist clients with effective wealth transfer strategies and focus on helping to prepare the younger generations for the responsibilities of significant wealth which awaits them. We recognize that most clients are looking for a holistic, yet simplified approach that allows them the time to pursue the activities and ventures they want by working with a team of individuals that they know will defend and protect their best interests.

Our Suite of Services

Our solutions for clients incorporate all corners of their financial lives based upon their risk tolerance, time horizon, liquidity needs, and overall investment goals. Included in many plans are the following:

  • The development and management of a specific asset allocation analysis and implementation plan responsive to each client’s goals
  • Evaluation of cash flow needs and examination of overall expenditures.
  • Access to banking services.***
  • The use of traditional and alternative investment strategies.**
  • The integration of tax****, wealth transfer, philanthropic and wealth planning.
  • The coordination of a client's wealth plan within a significant concentrated equity position of a closely held business.
  • The introduction to creative lending solutions.***

*Asset Allocation does not ensure a profit or protect against loss in declining markets.

**Some or all alternative investments may not be suitable for certain investors. Certain alternative investments carry significant risk and are not subject to the same regulatory oversight as mutual funds and other traditional investments. For these reasons, access to alternative investments may be limited to investors who are designated as sophisticated, high-net-worth investors.

***Banking products and services provided by Bank of America, N.A.

****Neither Merrill Lynch nor its Financial Advisors provide tax, accounting or legal advice. Clients should review any planned financial transactions or arrangements that may have tax, accounting or legal implications with their professional advisors.
