The way forward

Today, tomorrow and for generations to come

Understanding your life, your wealth and what you want to accomplish is at the core of our practice. We'll discuss your goals, the people who are most important in your life and your vision for the future. Then we'll help you organize your financial life into three strategies: Liquidity—to help provide cash flow for short-term expenses, Longevity—for longer-term needs and Legacy—for needs that go beyond your own.

Timeframes may vary. Strategies are subject to individual client goals, objectives and suitability. This approach is not a promise or guarantee that wealth, or any financial results, can or will be achieved.


Scott Matthew Butera, CFP

First Vice President–Wealth Management

My purpose is to be your primary source of wealth management advice. My objective is to know you and what's most meaningful to you and your family. My aim is to help you align your interests with your assets, your needs with your resources, and manage all your investment, asset, insurance, liability, tax, trust, charitable and family needs as one. Throughout my career, I have worked in confidence with many of Hawaii's most notable and wealthy individuals and families as expected by the disciplines of my practice, and you can trust me to maintain this same diligence and discretion with you.
