Bill Shelton and Martin Eichelberger joined forces in a new venture, forming the Private Wealth & Trust Division of Alden Investment Group.

WAYNE, PA – Both Certified Wealth Strategists (CWS) and formerly with Clarfield Citizens Private Wealth Management, they bring over 50 years of combined advisory experience to the table.

Bill is based out of Alden’s Doylestown, PA office, while Martin spends most of his time in Alden’s Wayne, PA office.  Specializing in trust accounts, banking and customized lending, both Martin and Bill spent the last two decades working for trust companies and wealth management firms in a fiduciary capacity.  Their client portfolio consists of ultra-high-net-worth clients; typically multi-generational, complex trust and estate type matters, investments, planning and family office services.  They generally work with accounts of net worth greater than $5 million.

With most of their clients based out of the Main Line of Philadelphia and Bucks County, Alden was in the perfect location for Martin and Bill.  Martin, a Certified Trust and Financial Advisor (CTFA) said, “Alden was just right for us.  Our clients like the local presences of Alden.  Many of my clients sit right around the Borough of Doylestown. We also liked the size of Alden, other firms in the area didn’t have the same gravitas and were either too big or too small.”  Bill added, “We met with Lee Calfo, CEO of Alden, and Chris Coloracci, Head of the Private Client Group, and we got a very good sense from them.  We liked the culture and the platform available at Alden.  We could tell Lee and Chris would be good people to work for and with, and that our clients would be comfortable here.”

Bill and Martin were also pleased with the product and service offerings available to them as part of the Alden team.  Martin said, “Alden has investment options other RIAs don’t have, such as their income strategy, alternative funds and real estate.  We didn’t have these important investment options for our clients elsewhere.  This diversification allows us to help them in ways we haven’t had in the past.”
