Maria Pyatigorsky, CFA, CPWA®

Wealth Manager & Employee Owner

Maria believes strongly that our independence and the priority we place on nurturing a thoughtful, caring culture set us apart. A watershed moment that forever impacted her understanding of her role was coming to the realization that her value goes far beyond financial returns and extends to how much of an impact we can have on our clients’ lives. Maria provides portfolio management and financial planning, partners with her clients’ tax and estate planning advisors, and emphasizes a holistic approach to her clients’ financial well-being. She also contributes to the firm’s investment strategies. 

Following a wealth management internship at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, Maria began her career at LNW as an associate in 2011. Her financial aptitude, organizational skills and empathetic approach helped her to advance steadily to her current position in 2020. Maria considers herself lucky to have been supported and nurtured and had great mentors along the way.

People recognize that what we have here at LNW is extremely rare.
