Helping your assets grow with custom, individualized financial advice.

How I can help you.

I craft financial solutions that work for small businesses and individuals & deliver them with honesty and integrity. Sapling Wealth Management, LLC is an independent, boutique investment firm specializing in 401(k) advisory services.

Service

By running a small firm, I provide an advantage when it comes to accessibility, responsiveness, and customized personal service. Clients have direct access to me and I personally attend to all important matters.

Style

While I accommodate numerous types of investment styles, I find most clients support intelligent investment risk taking strategies that result in portfolio growth. I named the company “Sapling Wealth” to reflect this proactive mindset.

Experience

I have worked in financial services since 1986, primarily as an investor and analyst. I have a deep understanding of the capital markets, along with the risks and rewards of investing, and can adeptly communicate those complexities to my clients.

About me

I’ve worked in financial services my entire career, starting on Wall Street as an Equity Research Analyst. Over the last 30 years, I have found that the single biggest mistake people make is not understanding what is “under-the-hood” of their investment portfolio and losing conviction in a long-term strategy. Where I add the most value to clients is through collaboratively forging an investment strategy that they can embrace; one designed to match an investor’s risk tolerance with a portfolio that can actualize their financial goals.

 

I seek to enrich the lives of my clients – small business owners and individuals – by providing cogent, custom financial advice.

I earned the Wall Street Journal “All-Star Analyst” award for my work as a health care service stock analyst.*

  • William G. Hicks did not pay any fees to the Wall Street Journal or Zacks to be included in this ranking.
  • The award category was for Hospitals and HMOs (Healthcare Services). Only one analyst was determined to be the most accurate of 41 healthcare service analysts ranked (2.4% of total analysts ranked).
  • This award does not evaluate the quality of services provided to the client.
  • This award was based on the accuracy of individual company earnings estimates relative to other research analysts in 1996.
  • The data used in the analysis was determined to be accurate by the Wall Street Journal; however, not all data was considered to be eligible for analysis and this could have affected results.
  • The award was based on average earnings estimate accuracy; individual company estimates may have differed more or less than the average estimate.
  • The award is not indicative of future performance.
  • The Wall Street Journal and Zacks Investment Research conducted the survey.

What I do for you

Retirement Plan Services

I work with plan sponsors and strategic vendors to design a thoughtfully structured retirement benefit plan that minimizes expenses, maximizes investment performance, and reduces fiduciary risk for your small business.

Individual Wealth Management Services

I meet clients where they are and guide them towards where they want to be. That may involve a one-time financial plan or a long-term wealth management relationship. I encourage my clients to dial into the service level that is right for them.
