Additional Salary Information: Commensurate with education, training, and experience
In 1978, we set out to build a new kind of wealth management firm, which would provide unprecedented service and support to meet all of a family's financial needs. We would operate with the highest of ethics and values.
Almost four decades later our business model continues with our dedicated team of financial planners, tax professionals, investment researchers, legal professionals and support ...staff; enabling us to meet the unique needs of each of our clients.
The JGUA comprehensive financial management relationship is one that goes far beyond daily investing tasks; we are the Advisor that monitors ever changing tax rates, estate legislation, financial trends-the constantly changing scenarios where we "work smarter" together. We offer a wide range of services to our clients, such as:
•Tax Planning and Preparation
•Executive Compensation Review and Planning
•Special projects based on the unique circumstances for each of our clients.
But perhaps the best way to describe our close relationship with our clients is to say that for any major life event, from the planned to the unexpected, we strive to be their most trusted resource and partner.
Our offices are based in the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York and in the Hudson Valley, but we are privileged to work with clients locally, nationally, and even around the world. We work with individuals as well as entire families, often spanning multiple generations.
