Columbia Private Bank > How We Work


When was the last time you had a meaningful conversation with your financial professional?

You talk.
We listen.
It’s that simple.

For us, this is how financial planning works. We get to know you: your passions, values, and purpose. We’ll look at your full financial picture. Then we’ll help you build on your success and toward your dreams.


It starts with a confidential conversation with one of our private bank relationship managers, who then introduces you to dedicated specialists across our firm. Together, we create a personalized plan for you to review. Once the plan is fine-tuned with your input, it's managed by a team of hand-selected associates who know how to best serve your goals and ambitions.

Let’s talk about wealth.


In our relationships with clients like you, we’ve found there are 13 key conversations that guide us in planning for your success. We call these our 13 Connected Wealth Conversations, and they’re a great way to explore your financial picture thoughtfully, holistically, and strategically. During your journey with us, you and your private bank relationship manager can choose the conversations that inspire and impact you the most.

How we’re different.




Advice partnership


Open collaboration is a critical part of our process. In the course of our conversations, we take the time to explore your entire financial picture along with your priorities and passions. We then partner with you to develop a wealth strategy that you truly believe in.

Purpose-oriented opportunities


Your financial strategy should not be placed in a vault until you retire or die. It should be as alive and present as you are. We provide ongoing, insightful perspectives that offer you new opportunities to pursue as your life and the world around you change.

Curiosity-driven exchange


We believe in two-way dialogue, but you lead the conversation. The more you talk, the more we learn; all in service of the next great conversation we have together. We're proud to be known as professionals who talk with you - not at you - and who ask the questions we know matter most.
