Individuals and Families

For more than 35 years, Ferguson Wellman has helped individuals and families navigate through the complexities of wealth management. We currently serve individual clients in 34 states and work with nearly 100 multi-generational families. Our minimum is $3 million.

We start with establishing clients’ goals and objectives to create their investment policy. From there, clients can follow one of two paths. Some will contact us periodically to help them navigate through other financial challenges and opportunities that arise throughout our relationship. Other clients prefer that we guide them through the milestones we anticipate they will face throughout their lives. We call this path our Wealth Management Framework.
