“Our team’s core values start with the client first. Our entire practice is laser-focused on providing honest, fair and insightful financial solutions.”
— Thomas Mantione
“Our focus on planning is very simple: We are all dedicated to looking at the big picture and helping you pursue your lifestyle goals.”
— Andrew Shantz
In the midst of increasingly complex financial needs, The Shantz Mantione Group defines what it means to be a wealth manager. For more than 20 years, we have been providing generations of families with inclusive wealth management and professional investment guidance in diverse market conditions.
Our “goals-based” process helps our clients clarify their current financial situation, identify challenges and create a comprehensive strategy. We collaborate with our clients’ other trusted advisors as well as our network of professionals, leading the effort to develop one integrated approach.
Building long-lasting relationships
Business owners, corporate executives and multigenerational families count on our experience and insights. With integrated financial guidance and a robust suite of investment solutions, we can help you with key issues around a broad array of professional and personal situations.
Whether you’re in start-up mode, building capital and growing your business, selling your company, looking to manage existing liquid assets or transferring wealth, we will work with you to address the full cycle of your business needs.
Our process begins with critical pre-liquidity planning all the way through execution and closing. Prior to the transaction, we’ll coordinate with our network of UBS and third-party experts to help develop a personalized strategy focused on your deal structure, valuation opportunities and tax considerations.
Post-liquidity wealth management
We can help you develop a tailored plan to transition from a K-1 distribution or salary to living comfortably off your investment income.
Whether you need planning during your wealth-building years or when transitioning out of corporate life, we understand executives need specific guidance. Our services include:
- Executive financial planning
- Specialty services for stock option planning and execution
- 10b5-1 restricted stocks
- Executive banking and lending
We work across generations of your family to provide education on wealth planning, investing and philanthropy. From estate planning strategies to business leadership transition to family dynamics, we offer the guidance you and your family need to make informed and confident financial decisions. The value we bring to each member of your family helps ensure assets are preserved and transferred to future generations and charitable organizations in an impactful and tax-efficient manner.
Total wealth management
While many financial advisors are focused solely on investment management, our comprehensive vision of total wealth management is built on three distinct, yet fully integrated, pillars:
With wholly personalized investment advice, we provide clear direction around asset allocation, portfolio management, risk assessment and wealth preservation.
Our advanced planning discipline helps to unify all the other aspects of your financial life, including tax minimization, cash flow, wealth transfer, planning for an uncertain future and charitable giving.
With the goal of working together for the long term, our relationship management practice coordinates all your professional advisors into one network focused solely on you and your priorities.

Stewards of your wealth
Execution, transparency and tangible results begin with a disciplined process for understanding your goals and building personalized strategies to help you manage and preserve wealth. We work prudently to help ensure your financial security by maintaining a keen awareness of what risk means to you and by providing a strict adherence to asset diversification.
Liquidity. Longevity. Legacy.
Our approach starts with questions and a discussion that help us focus on what’s really important to you. Then, we can help you organize your financial life into three key strategies: Liquidity—to help provide cash flow for short-term expenses, Longevity—for longer-term needs and Legacy—for needs that go beyond your own.
To help maintain your lifestyle
This strategy helps you manage cash flow for near-term expenses. It can give you the confidence to fund short-term needs regardless of the markets, and helps reduce the likelihood of making impulsive investment decisions during periods of market volatility.
- Entertainment and travel
- Purchasing a home
To help improve your lifestyle
This strategy includes the resources you’ll need over the course of your life. It can help you gain confidence in your future by allowing you to shift your focus to meeting long-term goals rather than trying to outperform the markets.
- Healthcare and long-term care expenses
- Second home
To help improve the lives of others
This strategy includes all of the resources for needs that go beyond your own. Having a Legacy strategy can boost your confidence by reframing risk based on specific legacy goals and longer timeframes.
- Giving to family
- Wealth transfer over generations
Tailored portfolio management
As active portfolio managers or by working with select money managers, we build custom portfolios from a broad array of investments that help match your objectives and risk preferences.
Asset allocation focused on mitigating risk
By listening and aligning with your objectives, we focus on asset allocation strategies that allow for sensible growth and help mitigate risk. As we implement your investment strategy, we communicate regularly and track performance, rebalancing and making adjustments for life changes and economic conditions.
Committed to accessibility and communication
Exemplary service is the cornerstone of a successful relationship. We consistently strive to anticipate your needs and ensure that you understand the thought process behind our solutions..
Attention on your terms
We always strive to provide the utmost in personalized service. We foster an environment that keeps you engaged in the investment process in the manner most appropriate to your needs and schedule. By meeting in person twice a year, updating your portfolio quarterly and “touching base” on important topics monthly, count on us for prompt attention, regular communication and relevant insights and information.
Trusted client service
Clients rely on our trusted and consistent client service team for a host of financial and administrative needs. This means taking extra steps to provide customized reporting, helping to organize tax information or simplifying daily financial and investment issues—from setting up online services to handling financial statements.
A network of resources
By working closely with your accountants, attorneys and trusted advisors as well as our network of external professionals outside UBS, we can incorporate all perspectives into one coordinated view. Our network meets at least quarterly to review client case studies.
