Your partner

When you choose The Ford Group, you gain a partner to help you navigate your financial needs of today and tomorrow. Managing your wealth comes with great responsibilities, and we use your goals and concerns as a guide in building a plan to grow, preserve and transfer wealth from generation to generation. We are committed to being a fiduciary and partnering with you in planning and strategizing in order to help you to reach your long-term financial goals.

Our process

We do not believe “one-size fits all”. Our comprehensive approach is to learn what’s most important to you, your family or your business. That includes your goals, ambitions and any unique circumstances that influence your investment decisions. The discussion centers around your risk tolerance, time horizon and your retirement income prior to developing customized investment strategies. Our interactive and collaborative approach allows us to design a plan that is adaptable to life changes and always tailored for you.
