About Us

A better way forward

OpenCircle Wealth Partners is an independent, comprehensive wealth management firm. We offer a wide range of financial services, including investment management, planning related to your taxes, retirement and estate. Putting client interests first is not just a catchphrase – it is our legal commitment as a fiduciary.

Our Mission

OpenCircle Wealth Partners is a registered investment advisor (RIA) firm with offices in North Haven, CT providing fee-only investment management and advanced planning services to individuals, trusts, charitable organizations, and plan sponsors. In all aspects of our practice, we are fully committed to providing unbiased advice and complete transparency. We work only for our clients and embrace our fiduciary responsibility that requires that we always put client interests first.

Comprehensive Wealth Management

Wealth management is based on the idea that very small changes can yield enormous gains in your family’s finances. No gain is more valuable than the act of saving and investing. It is our hope to work with you over the long term, not just to create a sound, comprehensive plan but also to take the time to implement it. This means bringing in the right resources – legal professionals, tax experts, and others – to ensure that all the pieces fit together properly.
