Point View's expertise and success have been widely lauded in the wealth management industry, with the firm recently named number 5 on CNBC’s list of the top 100 fee-only wealth managers in America. 

Point View manages more than $200 million in assets for a select group of families.  The firm believes no two clients are the same, and should not be treated as such. The firm's journey begins with meeting each client and having an open dialogue, learning the family’s financial history, and listening to what are they trying to achieve. 

What follows is a thorough analysis of current investment holdings, an examination of taxable and tax sheltered accounts, an analysis of employee stock positions, and an exploration of charitable endeavors. 

Next, Point View offers its recommendations, suggesting an investment asset allocation plan, and action steps to build a financial plan to attain the family’s financial goals and for generational wealth creation.

Finally, once both parties agree, Point View executes the financial plan over a timely manner and provides ongoing monitoring and reporting.

In its construction of client portfolios, Point View's major focus is risk management and diversification. The firm avoids making major bets in any one stock or sector, and prefers equally weighting both. Point View rebalances clients’ portfolios on a monthly basis to ensure that no one position or sector becomes too large. If so, it is rebalanced back to the targeted plan.

Point View's philosophy is that its financial planning efforts are an ongoing and evolving process, which requires constant communication among all the family members, accountants, and lawyers for estate planning issues. Point View communicates with each member of a client's team to ensure that everyone is on the same page with the financial goals they are looking to achieve.

Point View takes pride in its fiduciary responsibility to manage a client’s assets in a prudent manner, offering sound financial advice, and communicating often and thoroughly on all manners related to the client’s assets, financial markets, and evolving tax and legal landscape.

Imagine a Chatham Toboggan Ride from the Top of Fairmount Avenue to Main Street

Those were the days!

This was back in the early to mid-1900s. The Passaic River meandered through grassy meadows and woods on the north side of Chatham. The marshy ...

To the Editor,

I told my daughter I needed to write about gun violence. Know what she told me? “Mom, be sure you’re not too polarizing. People won’t listen.” She’s right. At age eleven she’s figured out that we adults need to be reminded how to speak to one another in order to fix a problem. But I have hope and belief that we can fix that discourse in our ...
