Working With You

The Century Group at Morgan Stanley assists clients in accomplishing their financial and investment goals.  Our client-centric approach is the bedrock of a mutually successful and rewarding relationship.  Fundamental to The Century Group’s business philosophy is the idea that the more knowledge and transparent understanding our clients have, the more likely they are to make well thought out investment decisions.

The pursuit for knowledge and understanding is a continuous endeavor.  With the strictest confidentiality, we conduct a structured process of interviews and research with our clients.  The knowledge gained from this interaction forms the critical foundation of setting financial and business objectives, investment strategies and processes designed to directly target our client’s objectives.

We provide continuous advice and asset management to our clients. Investment of client funds is based upon risk assessment, stated goals, objectives and timeframes. The Century Group develops strategies to preserve wealth, and provide appropriate investment growth and income.

Comprehensive wealth management consists of holistic financial planning and integrated investment management. It is a complex process that involves conducting an extensive consultation of both business and personal financial goals. Once establishing these objectives we analyze the data and develop tactics and strategies to meet stated objectives. The next step is to implement the plan and monitor ongoing performance, making changes when necessary.

    Asset Allocation and Portfolio Planning

    We will work together using a process that focuses on you and your goals, integrating investment decisions with your immediate financial needs and desired aspirations.

    This process encompasses four steps:
    • 1. Personal Review
      Before we can advise you, our team must understand you and your goals. We will guide you through an extensive discovery process to identify your objectives, time horizon, tolerance for risk and other considerations that may play a role in shaping your investment strategy.
    • 2. Asset allocation and portfolio planning
      Your input drives the development of a personalized financial strategy. Designed to help you meet your specific needs, it addresses areas such as retirement, education expenses, estate planning and tax minimization potential. When our analysis is complete, we will present to you an investment strategy that helps to identify appropriate diversification for your portfolio.
    • 3. Implementation
      After we have discussed and refined your strategy, we work closely with you to bring the elements to life. Should we decide that outside money managers are appropriate for you, we will help you select from the hundreds of investment management firms available to you. If you prefer to invest in individual securities, we can help identify specific stocks, bonds and other securities that may be suitable for your portfolio. Whatever approach we decide on together, our team will help you keep your strategy on track.
    • 4. Ongoing communications and reporting
      We view ongoing communication as the foundation of our successful collaboration with you. We will make every effort to keep abreast of your changing financial needs and provide viable strategies to help you meet them. This means reviewing your portfolio together at your request. When your circumstances change, we will work with you to revise your strategy and reposition your assets to reflect your new needs and goals.

    About Me

    Melody Yeung is currently a Registered Associate managing team operations, acting as a liaison between various departments in the firm, and providing client service with the Century Group.  She joined Morgan Stanley in 2016 as a Wealth Advisor Associate specializing in budgeting, cash flow, and retirement planning before joining the Century Group at the end of 2017.   

    Born and raised in San Marino, California, Melody spent her early adult years in the music industry as a songwriter and recording artist in Taiwan.  After releasing a few group albums and two solo projects under Warner Music and Virgin EMI, Melody took a break from music to complete her college education at Columbia University in the City of New York double majoring in Economics and Visual Arts and receiving her bachelor’s degree in 2016.   

    Having first-hand experience of living with sudden and unpredictable earnings with little knowledge on how to manage the money in her entertainment years, Melody became very interested in finance and investment strategies and the power of saving while studying in college.  Upon graduating, she decided to retire from music and stay in America permanently to embark on a new career— one that helps clients attain and manage their life’s spending and savings goals.

    Melody currently resides in Los Angeles with her two pet Malteses.  She spends a lot of her time painting and artmaking, performing in some shows every now and then, and cooking for friends and family at home.
