The Bronfman Rothschild Wealth Advisor Team

Bill Schwartz, CFP®, CPA, Managing Director & Principal

1 Preserve Parkway, Suite 610




What services do you or your firm provide?

We see ourselves as the “CFO” of affluent families. This means we provide financial planning and investment management services, but we go beyond. We coordinate with outside professionals like CPAs and estate attorneys, incorporate complex planning aspects like liability and charitable planning, and spend time educating the next generation on their financial lives to come. We want to simplify the financial lives of clients as much as possible.

What is your investment approach?

In a word: discipline. We work with clients so that they commit to a goals-based investment strategy that avoids overreaction to market turns. We also have an internal research team that takes a deep look at the investment universe, allowing us to create tailored portfolios for each client.

What makes your client experience unique?

You might notice a lot of people in our photo, and that speaks to our approach. Beyond those shown, we have 22 more in our Rockville headquarters, half of which are dedicated to our wealth management practice. Each relationship is a collaborative team effort, and we give clients multiple points of contact. This way we deploy the best strategies and solutions for each client, delivering a superior level of service while bringing the expertise of our advisors (including numerous CFP®s, CFAs, and CPAs) consistently to every relationship.

What made you want to become a professional adviser?

Many of us come from backgrounds in consulting and accounting, and this is reflected in our style. We all saw a better way to deliver financial advice at some point, and we all bring that consultative spirit to our work every day.
