The Poling Group assists clients in taking a long-term approach to wealth management by using a consultative and objective methodology. They believe in being thorough when guiding clients by going above and beyond the details of their investment portfolio to include their total financial picture.
They understand that one of the biggest challenges for an individual, family, or business is creating (and sticking to) a financial strategy to reach long-term goals. They are committed to understanding the specific situations of the people and businesses they work with; thereby being able to establish objectives, offer advice, develop an appropriate strategy, and review the progress made toward reaching those goals and objectives.
Clientele includes business owners, senior executives, doctors, estates, trusts, and families.
