Get To Know Your Team
Tax planning is ingrained in our process

Most firms outsource tax advice and just focus on asset management. We've taken a different approach because our financial advisors counsel clients on important tax topics and prepare year-end tax returns. We find that effective and strategic tax work can have a positive impact on our clients' portfolios. This makes GW & Wade a single point of contact for your entire financial life.
