Comprehensive wealth management for business owners

Mountain climbers reaching the summit

If you’re like most business owners and entrepreneurs, a substantial portion of your family wealth is invested in your company. This comes with its own unique challenges. We bring an experienced perspective and level of understanding of the complex opportunities and challenges that come at each stage of the business life cycle. Are you optimizing the value of your company—and potentially your next venture? Our involvement in the very early stages of your business planning can add important insight into helping you build, grow and exit strategically.

Executive at City Window

The Entrepreneur Wealth Group- "More than wealth management. Thought partnership."

Entrepreneurs see the world differently. Where there is nothing--they envision opportunity. Entrepreneurs instinctively follow a determined path to create, innovate, and grow. Building a business requires a solid plan from its start. There are twists and turns over the life of a company, the tree must be supported wherever the branches may grow--whether that is passing a company to heirs or employees, aggressively growing a business, or ultimately planning for a sale.


As a business owner, finding the right partners, who compliment your skills and knowledge is essential. Planning and executing a solid personal financial plan is critical to enabling sound decisions for your business. At the Entrepreneur Wealth Group, we focus on the unique financial needs of business owners and executives. We help them to bridge the gap between personal and business planning. We utilize the significant resources at UBS, which are dedicated to Business Owners and Ultra-High Net Worth Families to develop smart tailored planning solutions which meet the needs of your business and your family.

      In addition, Russell worked as a branch manager for many years until 2016 - first at Morgan Stanley and then at UBS.  During that time, he oversaw four offices and 96 employees. His leadership experience and his broad knowledge of UBS continue to inform the decisions he makes as a portfolio manager and as an investment advisor.

      Russell and his wife, Wendy, have three daughters, a son, and two granddaughters.
