The goal of Capital Planning Group, LLC is to help individuals, families and businesses to achieve what matters most to them. We strive to assist them in the accumulation, preservation, growth and transfer of wealth. Gaining a deeper understanding of  each of our client's needs helps us to develop, implement and deliver sound thought out solutions.  These solutions are based on rigorous research, integrated planning, and expert personal guidance.

We focus on the needs of each client with total commitment, courtesy and respect. Understanding what matters most to those with whom we work is at the heart of our process.  We help people to identify and articulate what they want for themselves and their family today, and in the future. With that information in hand, we examine where they are now, and identify any ‘gaps’ that exist between what they want and what they have. The results of that preparation then becomes the foundation for much of the work we do on their behalf. We design the process to be unique to each client. This process captures and reflects their personal, family and business goals.  We take special care to honor their objectives, as well as philosophical perspectives.
