The Banyan Assessment

The Banyan Assessment is at the core of each client relationship. We use this method to create an optimal financial plan tailored specifically to the objectives of each client. The assessment takes an in-depth look at one’s core values, personal philosophy, and goals. During this process, we’ll discuss both your short-term and long-term goals, income, risk tolerance, and more. Together, we’ll develop a wealth management strategy that will help you start planning for the future.

Obtaining a clear and comprehensive view of your financial health is critical to the success of our mission. We take a 360-degree approach to evaluating your current financial well-being.

What's behind our logo?

The Banyan Tree

Our logo, the Bleakley banyan tree, has a history of more than 400 years. The national tree of India, this large plant is known for its distinctly tangled system of branches and roots. Towering magnificently over its neighbors, it’s the largest tree in the world in terms of canopy coverage, or the area covered by its tree crowns. The banyan tree’s root system has the widest reach of all known trees, which can cover several acres.

In many villages in India, the banyan tree is known as the community gathering place, where lively conversations are held and important decisions are made. The tree is the symbol of the fabled “Kalpavriksha,” or the “tree of wish fulfillment.” We’re inspired by this meaning, which is why our first conversations with new clients always revolve around their future financial goals.

Like the shelter provided by this tree, we create a unique environment that offers support to clients. We devote the time and attention to understand their goals and create optimal plans for each one.

We believe in planting deep roots in fertile soil. This stable foundation will provide a firm place to begin building your financial future.
