Professional Profile

The Squarcia Group is a high functioning, integrated team that helps client’s reach their short and long term financial goals. Our main goal is to develop a plan in, which we protect, preserve, and grow client’s wealth.

The Squarcia Group offers the advantages of a boutique firm by working with a select group of individuals and small businesses. We believe client relationships need to be built upon trust and transparency in order to discover financial aspirations. The strategies we create are tailored to each client’s risk tolerance, goals, and expectations. We differentiate ourselves by focusing on wealth structuring, access to banking services, estate planning services, credit and lending, as well as advice and planning. Using the highest levels of integrity and honesty we can educate, guide, and provide clients with personalized financial strategies.

We believe in order to best serve clients, a disciplined investment process is necessary to help clients pursue their overall objectives. Our focus on identifying potential sources of risk enables us to better navigate market conditions while keeping aligned with targeted objectives. Our investment framework consists of simplicity, transparency, and high conviction which creates a process that is consistent and tailored to match the client’s individual investment and risk profiles. The Squarcia Group has years of experience, a Certified Special Needs Advisor, access to internal and external market research, and philanthropic experience which helps give clients the confidence their investment portfolios are designed by a dedicated team of professionals.

Our greatest reward is creating long-term relationships with clients and recognizing that our work is never complete. We understand the service we deliver is just as important as helping to protect and grow a client’s wealth.
