Reimagining the Client Experience
The SlateStone Advantage
Our approach is to focus on your success
The cornerstone of sound financial advice begins with a broad understanding of your objectives. Our clients are wealthy individuals and families who want to partner with an independent advisor who takes the time to truly understand their goals and aspirations.
That’s why we start by learning about what is most important to you, your needs and investment objectives. Then, we put these insights into action by crafting an actionable wealth plan and customized investment solutions designed to keep you on a path of success.
We measure success by the peace of mind our clients achieve in the process. The key for achieving it is straightforward – focus on our client’s agenda, not anyone else’s. This, is what sets us apart.
Our partnership with you is comprehensive; we offer creative solutions based upon thorough understanding, detailed analysis and consistent follow through.
