Our Firm

Client Profiles

Moneta Group serves a diverse client base ranging from the emerging affluent, philanthropists, business owners, and beyond. Below you can find brief descriptions of the situations that our most common clientele often find themselves in.

High Net Worth Families

You probably didn’t think of a downside to your financial success. But the complexities of ensuring that your legacy will endure can be staggering. How do you decide who gets what—and how much? Are ‘fair’ and ‘equal’ the same when it comes to estate planning? How do you make sure that your heirs—and not the tax collector—reap the benefit of your achievements? Raising kids who value what you value can be a challenge when they haven’t had to face the difficulties you have had to overcome.

Your Moneta Group Family CFO can help your family with investments, estate and philanthropic strategies and retirement planning—and we can help with something much tougher: talking to your kids about money and helping your family enjoy open and honest communication. Annual family meetings—with carefully developed agendas and wise guidance—can help you craft a family vision statement that will serve as a guidepost to the future—for you, for your children, their children and generations to come.

Retirees

Do you think of retirement as a carefree time in the distant future? If so, you better have a good plan in place, even though retirement seems eons away. How much is enough to provide for the lifestyle you dream of? So many variables can affect your carefully-laid plans—and it’s not just about money. Transitioning from the working world to one of leisure and singular opportunities can be difficult—especially if you’re not sure if that ‘replacement paycheck’ is going to give you the freedom to make those choices. Moneta Group Family CFOs can help you consider every facet of your financial position as you plan for your future. Let us be your advocate in creating a plan that makes sense, is flexible and is designed to create a secure future in which the dreams you have can become realities.

Women in Transition

You always left the financial decisions to your spouse, but now you find yourself alone and concerned about what to do. The plans you had in place as a couple might still be exactly right, but you’re going to need someone you can trust to help you monitor your wealth, plan for the unexpected and serve as your advocate. Moneta Group Family CFOs have many clients in your circumstance and know that this can be a difficult transition. Your age, the value of your portfolio and changes in your plans for your future are all considerations you should talk over with someone who can advise you and your family about what’s best now.

Those Considering Establishing A Trust
