Defining a Clear StrategyMany of the clients we serve have built and sold successful public and private companies, and each of them has shared with us that they could not have been successful without a well-developed strategy. We believe that managing your personal wealth should be no different. That is why our process begins with a thorough review of your balance sheet, income requirements, future aspirations, philanthropic goals and a detailed discussion about what risk means to you.
With a clear strategy based on your objectives, risk tolerance, time horizon and liquidity needs, we help you fulfill your individualized allocation with an appropriate blend of active and passive investment strategies. We emphasize a degree of flexibility in all of our recommendations, so as not to limit you to any specific product or provider.
Knowing that change is constant, we will meet with you frequently regarding relevant updates in your personal and financial life. We will also review your investment performance and recommend changes when necessary to help keep you on target to meet your financial goals.
Individualized Attention, Customized Advice and GuidanceBy serving a select number of families, Wickham Cash Partners is able to offer you proactive, customized service. In today's world of automated attendants, we believe there is no substitute for the level of personalized attention you will receive from our team.
In fact, it's not uncommon to have two or three team members meeting with you on a regular basis — or multiple team members working together to address a complex situation on your behalf. Whether yours is an investment-related issue for our analysts or a wire transfer request for our service team, our goal is to provide professional service that we feel is among the best in the industry. We believe there is tremendous value in spending time with you face-to-face. As a client, you can expect regularly scheduled meetings with the added flexibility to meet with us at a moment's notice. Our approach to client service is designed to help bring structure and simplicity to your financial life.
Meet the ProfessionalsOur financial advisors have a combined 125 years of investment experience — 100% of it with Merrill Lynch. Our seven private wealth associates have an average of 10 years in the financial services industry, the majority spent with Merrill Lynch. We believe that this level of continuity helps us to build long-lasting client relationships, and we have found that these strong client relationships, when allowed to mature, have flourished through all types of economic conditions — often surpassing expectations. Furthermore, many relationships have broadened into two, three, even four generations of the same family. We believe this is a powerful testament to the insight, service, advice and guidance we provide.
Private Wealth Advisors to Individuals and Families
Early in Charles Wickham Jr.'s career, he made the decision to establish meaningful relationships with a select number of wealthy families. While considered unconventional at the time, Charlie believed that if he could truly understand clients' family dynamics, their balance sheets, their income statements and their long-term goals, he could help them develop a financial strategy designed to last for generations. Fifty years later, our team of professionals continues this tradition as Wickham Cash Partners.
Wickham Cash Partners has experience in helping clients in all stages of their life cycle — and we can help you.
