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.
