At WS Wealth Management our multi-disciplined team brings together distinct investment backgrounds and with each advisor acting as a member of our investment committee, our clients benefit in two important ways. First, their personal financial advisor is directly involved in the construction of their investment portfolio. Second, the investment committee approach allows each client to benefit from the unique background of every advisor at the firm.
