Perrotti Hamilton Wealth Management began in September of 2017 when Perrotti Partners Wealth Management and Hamilton Investment Strategies merged. Perrotti Hamilton Wealth Management is an independent wealth management firm. We specialize in the retirement planning process and a customized approach to income oriented investments. Through our affiliation with “MACC” and “MAFM” we offer municipal, corporate, and government securities, mutual funds, exchange traded funds (ETFs), common stocks, and managed accounts.
We have always believed that our clients’ needs are our top priority. Helping you meet your goals is our main concern. Our initial consultation will begin with an introduction to our primary staff and a brief session where we will allow you to ask us general questions about ourselves, our business, and our methods of operation. Later on, if you are comfortable working with us, we will ask you to complete a questionnaire about yourself. Besides financial information it will ask you about your personal goals, desires and objectives. If it’s your dream to own a cabin in the mountains or play golf every day, we want to know. This information will be held in the strictest confidence and will help us determine appropriate directions for your long term planning.
