OUR PHILOSOPHY For over 45 years, The Phipps Group has been committed to delivering state-of-the-art wealth management advice and personalized, attentive client service. We create a partnership with our clients, we learn from each other. Our wealth management advisory group concentrates on the process of managing the six disciplines (F.L.E.R.R.T.), around the baseline of portfolio construction. The team strives to employ the unsurpassed resources and worldwide platform of Bank of America/Merrill Lynch and leverage them to the benefit of each client and their families. We work closely with the Firm’s international network of specialists who provide research, analytics, and technical support so that The Phipps Group can offer full lifecycle wealth management to clients and their families. Integration of the relationships between clients’ legal and tax advisors is crucial, with the goal to work as one team on behalf of every client. Our team serves a variety of uniquely successful individuals including entrepreneurs, physicians, healthcare professionals, and small to medium size family owned businesses. We are proud of the solid relationships we have developed over the years, particularly with clients’ families as we are currently advising many of our clients’ third generation family members. A PRACTICAL APPROACH Our approach to wealth management is disciplined, practical, and depends heavily on the partnership we form with our clients. The initial steps are to ask questions and understand what is most important to you, your family, and your business. And, like a physician, we do a complete financial “H&P” (history and physical). After rigorous analysis and testing, the results are then integrated into each of the six distinct disciplines below that our 45 years of experience shows us are necessary for client’s success. A diagnosis is then developed and monitored thoroughly after implementation.
