More than Advice... Advocacy.®

Gil has built his career around the idea of advocating for his clients.

Gil knows investors often spend loads of time, money, and energy managing their wealth without seeing the results they want. And after 25 years working on Wall Street, he also knows that the typical brokerage firm presents themselves as the key to unlock mind-blowing results for anyone willing to pay for their services. By now, you’ve likely realized how empty the promises of ‘financial advice’ can be, yet how difficult the financial ecosystem is to navigate alone. That’s why Gil made a break for it and started his own fee-only advisory services firm, Segment Wealth Management. Segment exists to advocate for you, helping you gain maximum value from your portfolio.

Many Investment Advisors help determine strategy but outsource the stock picking to third parties. At Segment, asset management is built in-house for two reasons: to save client fees, and to allow for greater tax control and customization. Having greater control also facilitates powerful charitable giving strategies.

Tax Strategy

Tax Strategy

Taxes are one of two factors we pay close attention to. We think about taxes over the long-term, avoiding as much as we can today, but also optimizing your tax strategy over a lifetime. We integrate with clients’ CPAs to better understand the full picture and provide the best advice possible.

Individuals often spend loads of time, money, and mental energy crafting plans to invest and manage their wealth. As they begin to invest, however, they quickly realize how complicated and difficult the financial ecosystem is to navigate. Eventually, most seek a relationship with a broker or two or a trustworthy fiduciary advisor, who will advocate for them. Of course, they expect exceptional returns from their financial relationships, but in the end, they simply want relief. They don’t want their financial well-being to be their problem anymore. They just want peace of mind. View Media
