Our core business is helping you manage your financial life, and it's our relationship with you that serves as a platform for that effort. We incorporate your goals and objectives—your concerns and needs—into an individualized, long-term wealth strategy.
We assemble investment portfolios in a disciplined, methodical way. We aren't inclined to seek high, unsustainable returns in any investment category.
You can delegate to Bradley Bruce the investment management responsibilities for your portfolios, meaning he has discretion over certain investment decisions surrounding your investment strategy. Once he has confirmed your goals and life priorities, as well as identified your portfolio investment objective, time horizon, risk factor and liquidity needs, Bradley will recommend targeted asset allocations for your portfolios to help meet your specific investment objectives. Granting Bradley authority allows him to respond to market changes, price volatility and global events with the ability to make adjustments, if needed, to help your portfolio stay on track to meet your goals.
To help you monitor and assess performance, Bradley will regularly review your portfolio with you and you will receive periodic communications including monthly statements, quarterly portfolio summary updates and annual performance reports.
Clients are busy people, and our goal is to help keep them from missing valuable financial opportunities. Bruce & Haber Group isn't narrowly focused on just selecting stocks or mutual funds. Rather, we work with clients—individuals, families, business owners and enterprise executives—to develop a personalized portfolio that is simplified, and that takes a clear, steady approach to identifying and refining your specific investment strategies.
At Bruce & Haber Group, we appeal to—and work effectively with—clients who share our philosophy that wealth management is a process carried out over years and decades, not weeks or months.
We think it's important that we foster relationships that allow us to serve multiple generations of clients' families.
Using our experience and perspective, we offer financial advice and guidance to clients to help them through changing markets and unpredictable life events.
Each member of Bruce & Haber Group brings individual experiences and professional concentrations to our advisory practice. Blending our collective skill sets allows us to apply a broad, collective knowledge base when we collaborate to service client relationships.
We share a deeply held belief that clients come first—a principle that is the heritage of Merrill Lynch. When you work with Bruce & Haber Group, you can benefit from the dedication and experience of our entire team.
