Welcome

Welcome
For me, retirement planning means more than providing my clients with investment advice. It means helping them maintain the financial independence they’ve worked their whole lives to achieve.

My consultative process begins with an in-depth discussion of your current finances and future objectives. We’ll address issues you might have overlooked and determine how we can help you adjust your investment strategy to accommodate changing conditions and meet any unforeseen expenses and income demands that may arise during retirement.

About Me

Nicole Nabatian attributes her success in advising the global high net worth community to three core themes: Experience, Effective Communication, and Superior Service. She works toward achieving clients’ financial goals through astute Financial Planning and discerning Wealth Management that contributes directly to the steady and impressive expansion of her private wealth business.

As your Financial Advisor, she applies first-class knowledge and service in delivering and executing wealth management plans with a strong emphasis on assisting and being an advocate for physicians, business owners and athletes for financial advice, solutions and education. This management is blended with financial planning, tax sensitivity, and estate planning strategies, ensuring that every piece of the client’s financial puzzle is working together harmoniously.

In navigating her clients through the phases of wealth accumulation and preservation, Nicole’s goal is to give clients the experience and knowledge they need with best-in-class service. Passion, experience, and attention to detail are hallmarks of the relationships she maintains. Nicole’s mantra is simple: Wealth advising through client intimacy distinguished by openness, efficiency and advice delivered in a unique style. Success is not determined by statistical measures of performance, but, rather, by clients’ ability to achieve their goals.

Nicole is a life-long resident of Newport and currently resides in Irvine, CA. She enjoys traveling, reading and exercising. She received a B.S. in Economics from University of California, Irvine.

    Philanthropic Activities

    In addition to a commitment to success in her professional life, Nicole has an overriding desire to participate in the community. In particular, Nicole has a passion for helping children and volunteers for the Boys & Girls Club in Orange County.

    She firmly believes in working for the benefit of society and is an active participant in local events that support those in need in the US and abroad.
