MEANS PEACE OF MIND
Coldstream is an employee-owned, independently-operated wealth management firm that’s been earning the trust of high net-worth clients since 1996. We start with your goals, financial and otherwise, and an investment strategy that will get you there. We guide you through the complexity of wealth management so that you can have peace of mind while achieving the financial and lifestyle goals important to you.
Our team delivers in all the ways people expect from an investment firm, and in ways that go above and beyond. Our clients tell us that our investment in them is more than financial. Why do we care so much? Because we know that choosing to work with us means trusting us to guide your family—and to us, there’s no greater honor.
This year, the Coldstream team is proud to celebrate 25 years serving clients. What does this milestone mean to us? A lot. It means 25 years showing up for our clients, their kids, and their kids’ kids, in the office and beyond. Twenty-five years helping families like yours reach your goals, financial and otherwise; celebrating new homes, college graduations, early retirements. It’s been an honor to spend 25 years serving you, and we can’t wait to see what we’ll accomplish together in the next 25.
