The Verga Group

The Verga Group at Morgan Stanley provides affluent clients with a holistic approach to wealth management, where our clients’ life goals are the beginning of the process.  With this end in mind, we collaborate with our clients each step of the way, often discussing and assessing issues well beyond the scope of financial management.  We believe our experience has given us a unique perspective in the behavioral attitudes of high-net-worth clients and how to help meet their expectations.  

Once we determine “why” we are investing, we will then assist clients in developing a tailored strategy for the long-term that will consider the different needs and obstacles that might arise during their lifetime; including retirement investing, cash-flow planning, education financing, wealth transfer, charitable giving, executive compensation issues and wealth preservation strategies.  As we help address each of your needs, we will create a specific portfolio considering the risks as well as the potential for meeting expectations.

Our goals-based wealth management approach allows us to sit on the same side of the table to help you:

Focus on what is important to you and your family.  
Customize a strategy. 
Commit resources efficiently.
Monitor and review changes over time. 

Communication is paramount.  As time goes on, we will continue to keep you apprised of any factors that could impact your plan.  We are always available to help with any questions or concerns as they may arise.
