About Private Ridge Wealth Management

Every person that is associated with Private Ridge Wealth Management understands that you invest to realize your dreams and goals - whether it's to enjoy a comfortable retirement, to travel, spend time with family, or simply have the freedom to live life on your terms, you have saved, sacrificed and invested to be able to realize those dreams. At Private Ridge, we understand that you don't invest so you can look at investment statements or performance reports - you invest to enjoy your life. We believe that a sound financial plan focuses on both investment and asset management AND risk management. We provide strategies to help manage and grow your assets while also instituting strategies to protect your assets.

What Sets Private Ridge Apart… While most firms will offer an investment portfolio and “personal service”, what sets Private Ridge Wealth Management apart is for every relationship with over $250,000 in net worth, we provide an individualized Investment Policy Statement AND Risk Management Statement. These two documents provide the parameters for why and how we invest, any personal criteria that you wish to designate and a clear explanation of how and why we institute any risk protection initiatives.
