Discovery Process
Investing the time to learn about you and your family; your assets and liabilities and the risk exposures, enables us to formulate strategies and customize the relationship to your needs.
Formulation of Tax, Trust and Estate Strategy
Working with your tax and legal advisors, we help analyze your income and estate tax circumstances to identify and tailor planning techniques that may be used to address your objectives.
Creation of Customized Strategic Asset Allocation
Your customized asset allocation reflects risk, opportunities and taxation across multiple entities, while integrating your investing and estate plans.
Integration of Tactical Asset Allocation
Short-term adjustments seek to capitalize on temporary market distortions. Before making adjustments, we analyze the impact of taxes and trading costs on potential returns.
Implementation of a Customized Wealth Strategy
After comprehensive due diligence and analysis of expected results across multiple market scenarios, strategies are chosen from our expansive investment platform.
Ongoing Assessment
In coordination with your other advisors, we can conduct ongoing reviews and comprehensive reporting to ensure that your strategy adapts to changing financial and family needs.
  • Philosophy
    The incredible advantage of working with the Eagle Team is our “small to big” difference. We keep your access “small” with a direct link and connection to Nadine, Maggie and team, while having the “big” unparalleled resources of a global firm at your fingertips.

    Unlike cookie-cutter processes that tend to minimize client individuality and pigeon-hole clients into pre-determined investments, we insist on sitting down and truly understanding our clients’ needs and interests. We strive to work as much as possible from our clients’ perspectives to understand where you are coming from and then apply our knowledge to help you get where you want to go. The end result is a comprehensive, customized wealth management plan, emphasizing global diversification, tax efficiency and risk management. Working with us empowers you to achieve financial success but, moreover, to establish career and life mission statements and legacy objectives that provide greater purpose toward that success.

    In addition to our client-first focus, giving back is central to our philosophy. Our philanthropic efforts are realized through our passions in our own personal lives, as well as through the work we do with clients to help them discover and grow their own passions. Additionally, we are one of the only teams within Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management to create special events connecting entertainers and Morgan Stanley clients, in an effort to raises awareness and funds for select not-for-profits.
  • Clients
    Our clients come from all sectors of the technology, philanthropic, entertainment and artistic spheres. We take special pride in creating a safe space for entrepreneurs, artists, scientists and others whose creative contributions have transformed society and have a cultural imprint on how we look at the world. Many of our clients are notable Award winners whose unique contributions to the sciences, theatre, film and television have given them the options to support philanthropic foundations that benefit our society. We actively support these passions to give them a voice. Our clients’ unique financial situations require sophisticated advice around the best investment strategies to ensure long term financial security.
