Expert Access for more complex portfolios: High Net Worth Individuals $2M +

With Private Client Services through Northwestern Mutual, we work with individuals, families, and businesses to deliver services and solutions that help build, protect, and manage wealth.

Private Client Services can give you access to exclusive wealth management and specialized portfolios. You'll work with a team of financial advisors who specialize in handling the unique needs that come with more wealth, including merging

Our team won’t just help you create and manage your investment portfolio; he or she will also take time to educate you on what you own, why you own it and how it contributes to the overall health of your portfolio.

Personalized investments: Two of the main drivers of returns for any investment portfolio are asset allocation and security selection. As your wealth manager, I leverage my expertise of markets and the economy, as well as their understanding of you as an individual, to craft an individualized portfolio. Because of their institutional ties, they can also execute investment strategies that might be complicated or otherwise out of reach to an individual investor, such as buying on margin or the inclusion of less liquid assets.

Tax efficient strategies: We will think critically about how a portfolio is built and managed — what assets it holds, what type of accounts it consists of, how long to hold a stock — in order to minimize your tax burden over time and maximize your wealth. For example, we might advise you to sell a stock that has been underperforming in order to harvest your losses and reduce your tax burden during a given year.

Just as capital gains taxes and income taxes threaten your wealth while you are alive, gift and estate taxes can threaten the wealth that you try to pass along to your loved ones after you die. We will help you craft a plan to minimize these taxes as much as possible in order to preserve as much wealth as is feasible.

Your employee compensation plan: We are familiar with even the most complex compensation packages. This may include incorporating deferred compensation or equity plans into your overall wealth management plan and the rest of your portfolio, assisting in the valuation of your plan, or developing a strategy of diversifying away from your plan into a broader and liquid portfolio when it makes sense.

Legal advice: We will work with your other advisors, like your attorney, to make sure the appropriate legal documents are in place and are coordinated with your financial portfolio. This may include trusts, your will, a living will, durable powers of attorney, letters of intent and various beneficiary forms, among others.

Charitable donations: Finally, if you would like to reserve a portion of your estate for charitable donations,we can help you do so in the most tax-efficient manner possible.

If you find your financial situation growing more complex, we can help you ensure that you are not leaving any stone unturned in growing and preserving your wealth.
