Welcome to Westover Capital
Westover Capital Advisors (Westover) is an independent, privately-owned investment and wealth management firm founded in 1999. We have a fiduciary relationship with all of our clients. This means we have a fundamental obligation to act in the best interests of our clients, and to provide advice which we believe is always in their best interests. In addition to our advice, we offer our clients a duty of undivided loyalty and utmost good faith.
Westover is a fee-based advisor providing our services primarily to high net-worth individuals, their families, family offices and foundations. We tailor our strategies toward their needs. We do this by providing our clients sophisticated, thoughtful and goal-oriented financial advice. Our dedicated advisors personally get to know our clients in order to design customized strategies that integrate the pieces of their financial life holistically in order to help them grow, preserve, transfer and structure their wealth in accordance with their particularized goals.
At Westover, our team of financial experts work to seek solutions for challenges created by the scale of our client’s wealth. We work to address the myriad wealth management and investment challenges that arise from our client’s personal, legacy and business needs.
As our client, we believe our advice should reflect not only where you are today, but also should provide alternative scenarios for where you want to go tomorrow. We are aware of the unique circumstances that apply to each of our clients, and are both mindful of and humbled by our role as your trusted advisor. Westover’s advisors rely on their experience, training and judgment to create customized portfolios, client-specific plans and recommendations. Our advisors hold advanced degrees and certifications in the investment field (CFA®), financial planning arena (CFP®), business administration (MBA) and in law (JD).

When markets are going up, it’s easy to claim to be a long-term investor. The real test for the long-term investor comes when markets are going down. Unlike in 2017, the stock market does not go up every month, or every quarter, or even every year.
2018 will come in with the worst equity performance since 2008 and it will almost certainly be negative. Can’t be rainbows and unicorns forever.
In 2014, New York Times columnist Paul Sullivan wrote that the average asset value needed to justify the services of a family office was between $100 million and $1 billion. With advances in technology, these services are now attainable for a wider, yet still exclusive, market.
