Independent thinking. Insightful solutions. Private Wealth Management

At The Mahoney Group, we are driven to be passionate students of the markets and have immersed ourselves in the analytics of investing for the last 30 years. To us, identifying smart solutions for our clients takes a meticulous investment acumen balanced with planning, “outside the box” thinking and looking for the right opportunities at the right time.

As an accomplished UBS Private Wealth Management team, we primarily guide a select group of private company founders and their families through the early preparation, long-term planning and management of their exit liquidity. While many have come to us for this knowledge, we view their business transition within the larger scope of a purpose-driven wealth and legacy plan. We integrate all goals into that plan—from estate planning, wealth transfer and philanthropic strategies to sustainable and socially responsible investing. Given significant level of success and sophistication of our clients, we believe they truly value our clear communication, dedication to relationships and most importantly, our independent approach to portfolio structuring and oversight.

Your strategic exit

Pre- and post-sale planning for your business
Having worked primarily with private business owners over the years, we’ve helped them through the emotions that come with owning and growing a successful company, and the issues—tactical and personal—that often arise when you sell or transition from your ownership role. As a Certified Exit Planning Advisor® (CEPA®), Tom, in collaboration with his team, understands what you need to exit confidently: a plan to maximize your company’s value—before and after taxes—and comprehensive financial planning to help you maximize the benefits of this major liquidity event.

Whether you’re expanding your businesses, exploring new ventures or contemplating a sale, our early involvement enables us to engage all of the resources needed to help maximize the value of your event. We’ll coordinate our recommendations about deal structure, valuation opportunities and tax considerations through our collaboration with both third-party and UBS teams in:

Institutional insight, analytics and impact

A customized approach to portfolio construction
A truly customized portfolio should be informed by insights that align with your goals. That’s why we view ourselves as financial advisors who deconstruct and reconstruct strategies to fully understand how they work or could work better toward your goals. At UBS, we also have the intellectual freedom to choose managers who support our efforts. Informed by our rigorous due diligence, this “open architecture” flexibility helps us develop appropriate strategic and tactical asset allocations, manage risk and, importantly, measure performance—a critical component of our process.

Wealth creating impact
Around the world, there is a growing interest in market solutions that hold companies more accountable and help ensure they make a positive impact. More and more, investors are participating in a sustainable investment approach incorporating social, environmental and governance factors into their investment decisions. Through impact investing, one type of sustainable approach, we are helping many of our clients use their wealth to contribute toward a more renewable society—as well as a potentially profitable portfolio.
