About My Practice
At UWM (Urban Wealth Management), we believe that Financial Planning is the starting point for all matters related to Wealth Management. Your plan should be the primary driver with respect to how your assets ought to be managed – not the other way around. Moreover, we also like to be connected with our clients on a much deeper level. We partner with our clients to help them achieve their goals. This process involves more than acquiring data, crunching numbers and handing you a set of projections. Knowing who you are as a person is just as important as helping you define and reach your financial goals. It gives us better insight so that we can design strategies that will produce successful outcomes.
We believe that an educated client is an engaged client. To that end, we provide various tools to help increase your Wealth Management IQ. Using technology, we offer Teleconferences, Webcasts and downloadable Podcasts on a variety of topics for your convenience. We recognize that our clients are busy people, so utilizing technology driven mechanisms to further enhance the client experience is a key element of our practice. By employing a state of the art, interactive financial planning program, our clients can set up a personal dashboard which aggregates their financial information in one place and is updated daily, create customized financial reports and budgets and best of all, allow their Wealth Manager to view, monitor and as needed, provide recommendations on their total picture. And finally, our clients also have a choice of how they wish to communicate with us whether it’s for face to face meetings, via a teleconference or using screen sharing technology.
