New 2-Part Article by "Pillar Wealth Management, LLC" Focuses on Securing Ultra-High Net Worth Portfolios in Light of Federal Reserve & 2017 Trump Administration Policy Changes

WALNUT CREEK, CA--(Marketwired - December 14, 2016) - Pillar Wealth Management, LLC, a private wealth management firm to affluent families, including some that have attained wealth reaching $400 million, has published part 1 of a 2-part article advising ultra-high net worth investors on securing their portfolios in light of two concurrent shifts: rate changes by the Federal Reserve, and policy changes that will continue to be enacted throughout 2017 by the new Trump Administration.

The new article, which is available on the Pillar Wealth Management website, advises investors to apply big picture thinking and create an analyzed set of action steps to install protection mechanisms, and position themselves to potentially exploit an opportunity that may not present itself as attractively for years or decades.

The article further advises investors to ask a series of questions that are noted in the firm's recently-published book The Art Of Protecting Ultra-High Net Worth Portfolios And Estates, Strategies For Families Worth $25 Million to $500 Million. These questions cover a variety of aspects, including wealth direction and objectives, the role of each investor's family constitution, evaluating advisors, clarifying investment strategies, and more.

"We recommend that ultra-high net worth investors actually write down and document their answers," comments the firm's co-founder Haitham "Hutch" Ashoo. "This helps keep things clear and complete, and it also creates a reference that can be valuable for the family in the future. We also recommend that investors keep their appointment calendar open, so they can give themselves deadlines and tentatively schedule appointments with family members and advisors."

Adds the firm's co-founder Chris Snyder: "For investors, protecting their family's wealth is an ongoing obligation, and it is not an easy task. It is necessary to make adjustments, and to take advantage of expertise from various disciplines, including wealth management, personal psychology, family dynamics, legal, accounting, finance, insurance, asset protection, business succession and philanthropy."
