Dunlop Investment Group

“My father and I have been business partners for more than 10 years but have always been employees of a larger firm. We decided we wanted to own our own advisory business—we wanted the freedom to serve our clients our way but also needed to address a near-term business succession. It’s a complicated business so we wanted help getting started and handling the ongoing business operations and risk management. The partnership with EWM has helped us get further, faster than we would have on our own.”

– Connor Dunlop, Principal, Dunlop Investment Group
