Investment Management and Guidance

Our philosophy is simple: Wealth should grow, be preserved and be passed on to future generations. We believe clients choose us because they realize they need an integrated approach to managing their financial lives. We embrace and share your vision, and we bring its various parts together in a clear—and clearly stated—strategy designed to target your goals.

The work we do is customized for you and your financial situation. We take into account where you are now, your tolerance for risk, your liquidity needs and where you see yourself and your family in five, ten or twenty years. We look at your wealth today and help you utilize various tools designed to help forecast your expected income and spending. What's more, the thinking you get goes beyond our office in Northbrook, Illinois. As needed, we can bring in specialists from Merrill Lynch and Bank of America.

The Loewenthal Group

A Long-Term Wealth Management Strategy

The Loewenthal Group can help bring clarity to your financial life. We work to help you preserve your capital and identify suitable investments. We have always believed in developing a robust wealth management strategy that is long term and not overly reactive to market conditions. Our other essential belief is that your strategy must be individualized. We evaluate where your wealth is invested, your spending habits and income needs, significant milestones and upcoming events, and your overall outlook for the future. Our objective is to help keep your financial life moving forward toward your goals.

We work to help you crystallize your thinking about the financial goals you want to pursue and develop strategies tailored just for you. We also establish agreed-upon checkpoints to measure your progress and consider adjustments.

Whatever your financial needs, you can leverage a full range of financial strategies drawing on the investing insights of Merrill Lynch investing and the banking convenience of Bank of America. Our goal is to map out innovative, forward-thinking strategies and tactics that can work toward your objectives.

The Loewenthal Group

Insight, Reliability and Exceptional Service

Our mission is to meet the needs and exceed the expectations of clients, and this requires significant time and attention. Providing outstanding customer service elevates service to the next level—in our belief, the only level clients should accept. This commitment to service comes from having high-quality people, working in a nurturing environment that values accuracy, energy and optimism. With every opportunity we get, we look for ways to add value to a client relationship. And, especially when it comes to client interactions, we strive to have every call, meeting or communication end on a positive note.

We try to lead by example, steadily providing organization and discipline to your financial life. We believe this, too, contributes to the pursuit of what is important to you.

The Loewenthal Group

Our Commitment to Clients

We work with affluent clients because they face an array of interesting situations, challenges and needs. Over the years, our experience with them has brought us extensive practical knowledge — and, we believe, a reputation for knowing how to address wealth, in all its forms.

In fact, we have seen an amazing variety of business ventures, professional and career accomplishments, exceptional ideas, creative talents and hard work. The clients we work with care deeply about their families and their communities. They recognize the privilege and responsibility of wealth. These are the people, we believe, who most want our help — and who we can help most.

"It is our goal that when clients see what we can do, from wealth management to legacy strategies, they will decide that The Loewenthal Group is the only financial advisor they need."
