The Cycle of Investing

Our work begins and ends with you – and your vision for a financially secure future. Like a journey which has many contours and obstacles along the way, our focus is to guide our clients along their unique financial path.

We start by working closely with you to learn about your financial goals, needs and values – so we can help you map your own particular path to the financial future you envision.

What’s more, we know it’s hard to keep moving forward, so we stay with you every step of the way. We help you track your progress and navigate any unexpected twists and turns.

We’re Bridgewater Asset Management, a financial advisory firm founded to serve individuals, small businesses and not-for-profits. We limit our list of clients so we can focus on providing each one with personalized advice – the same sound advice we’d give to a member of our own family.

Please review our site and get to know us better. Then, let’s talk and see if we’re a good fit for you – and you for us. We hope you’ll decide to join our select group of clients, and begin on your path to a financially secure future.
