Welcome

It is our conviction that good advisors need to be good listeners, and that critical skill is a key piece of what we at The MG Group bring to client relationships. We are also committed to continuing our education through a variety of honored and respected financial industry designations: collectively we hold the CIMA®, CRPC®, and CFP® certifications–- all so we can provide you with meaningful and prudent recommendations. We understand the complexities families face with financial decisions over the course of a lifetime, and we strive to be an objective and trusted resource to help better our clients' lives.

Serving a unique group of affluent clients -- many of whom have been referred by attorneys, accountants and trust professionals -- The MG Group provides personalized wealth management advice that draws on the research and resources of Merrill, along with the lending and deposit offerings of Bank of America. The MG Group’s mission is to make our clients financially secure. Focused on building enduring investment advisory relationships, Mike Gray and Davey Oetting help retirees, business owners, highly-compensated professionals and families with multi-generational wealth evaluate all aspects of their financial wellbeing.
