Introducing (Sort of) Vertical Wealth Management

In 2010, Mark Shelby founded Vertical Investments, LLC to provide straightforward service and plainspoken advice to individuals and families throughout the Hampton Roads area. We wanted to elevate the level of financial services available in our region – hence the “Vertical” part. The “Investments” part shifted the conversation from a typical, transaction-based exchange to a deeper relationship based on tending to investors’ total portfolios.

In the years since, none of these goals have changed. In fact, we’ve enjoyed seeing our early vision take shape, and have come to realize that what we’ve been doing all along often goes beyond investing as well. As we advise clients on their portfolios, we also tend to their wider wealth interests.

To underscore our continued focus on far-reaching levels of client care, we are pleased to announce a springtime launch of our (sort-of) new firm name, Vertical Wealth Management.

As we describe on our website: “Wealth management is about more than just picking some good investments or owning the right investment products. Wealth management involves a disciplined process that includes nearly every aspect of your financial life. From retirement planning to investments to tax management and estate planning, wealth management covers a broad spectrum of issues and goals.”

Do you and your family have personal or professional opportunities and challenges that might benefit from integrated financial planning, offered by an objective advisor who is dedicated to serving your highest interests? We hope you’ll give us a call to find out more.
