Perhaps more than any other time in recent history has the world economic landscape presented as many challenges to investment managers and their advisors. Lower growth expectations in the US, a low interest rate environment coupled with greater volatility puts enormous pressure on portfolio construction.  Such challenges call for extraordinary resources, experience, reliability and integrity. 

Whether you’re looking for guidance with your retirement planning, your 529 college funding, charitable giving and or wealth management, Rick Berry is an advisor you can count on.  We start with an understanding of your current situation, your life’s goals, dreams and an inventory of your assets and tolerance for risk.   2013 and beyond will require being selective, investing in companies, not markets and an approach to manage risk without closing the door on opportunities.  Being objective in uncovering those money managers who demonstrate long term excellence in their work is essential to the success you expect in your relationship with Rick.

The realization of your goals involves a commitment to action, an evolving understanding and belief in the worlds’ capital markets.  Rick relishes the building of bridges and the nurturing of the relationship through a coaching and mentoring approach.

Rick Berry provides his financial and wealth management services in the Greater Tri-State area including Connecticut, Massachussets, and Rhode Island for the past forty plus years.
