Professional Profile

The Squarcia Group was founded, in 2000 with the mission to provide the services of a boutique firm in conjunction with the broad resources of a global institution. By working with a select group of affluent individuals and small business we have the time and resources to develop an in depth understanding of your life goals, concerns and needs. These relationships are built upon trust, honesty, respect, and are directed by our fiduciary responsibility to our clients.

Our goal is to become your trusted advisor who educates, guides, and creates personalized financial strategies to help you achieve your desired outcomes.

How We Differ

  • We look beyond your portfolio and also focus on wealth structuring and estate planning services. Then we review access to banking services, credit services and lending through Bank of America, N.A.

  • We believe so strongly in this holistic review it is a standard practice for all our clients.

  • We deliver proactive, customized advice with excellent service.

  • We understand the service we deliver is just as important as helping to protect and grow your wealth.

  • Our greatest reward is creating long-term relationships with clients and recognizing that our work is never complete.
