The Hoban Gleason Team

William Blair Private Wealth Management

Our team is focused on providing a well-rounded and holistic path to financial security and success. Our two portfolio managers, wealth planner, relationship manager, client relationship associate, and sales associate work in an integrated, proactive fashion to provide the highest level of client satisfaction. We have a long and successful history of working with high-net-worth families, corporate executives, entrepreneurs, endowments, and foundations. Each client’s needs are different, and our team is built to deliver customized solutions that fit your long-term goals.  

Strong, tax-efficient, and risk-adjusted investment returns are paramount, of course. Equally important are your plans for your family’s financial future, retirement planning, and philanthropic goals. Our team of experienced professionals will help you develop your unique plan and execute that vision while delivering exceptional client service. We will communicate our progress toward your plan and will work to ensure your understanding of how all these important pieces fit together.

Putting our clients’ needs first underlies every aspect of the decisions that affect our wealth management relationships. We know and embrace our firm’s time-tested approach: “If our clients succeed, our success will follow.”
