Who's in charge of what?

As a Bellwether client, you get everything you need, all in one place.


Bellwether Family Wealth is our team of family wealth advisors, dedicated to helping clients with all of their financial, estate, and tax planning needs. As relationship managers, they get to know you; learn about your hopes and fears for the future, and then work with a portfolio manager to put it all together in a holistic financial plan that reflects your financial aspirations. We also check in with you regularly so the plan can be adjusted as your circumstances change. 


Bellwether Investment Management is where your plan is put into action. A portfolio manager will meet with you to establish your investment objectives and determine the investment solution that best suits your needs; then manages your portfolio and monitors performance to ensure you're on track. You can always book a meeting with your portfolio manager to discuss the specifics of your investments, but most of our clients are confident simply knowing that we're all working together to help them achieve their goals. 

Together, your family wealth team and portfolio management team make sure you have everything you need to enjoy the journey and reach your desired destination-even when your plans change.

5-step process

If life is a journey, then your financial plan is your road map and your investment program is where the rubber hits the road. Your Bellwether team will help you chart a course, prepare wisely for the trip, make any necessary adjustments and be your trusted travel companion.


We meet as many times as necessary to review your goals and determine how we can help you get there. This is our opportunity to get to know you, your family, and your life priorities.


We present custom solutions for your situation, including a plan to monitor progress and report back to you.


We review your existing investments and, if you would like, your insurance, tax, estate, charitable giving and business approaches to see how they line up with your goals.


We do the work to achieve your outcomes. Your investment committee, which meets weekly, makes regular changes to your portfolio in keeping with your Investment Policy Statement (IPS) to achieve your investment goals-keeping you as much or as little in the loop as you like. Your family wealth advisor or portfolio manager coaches you on anything you need help with, including goal setting, budgeting, business management, and handling important life transitions.


We track progress as planned, reporting on performance and making adjustments in consultation with you.
