With clients who represent almost every phase of life—from young professionals to those well into retirement—advisor Vince DiLeva and his team at Signature Estate & Investment Advisors, LLC® (SEIA) understand that there is not a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to financial solutions. Their clients have a wide range of goals and values, and Vince endeavors to help them achieve success—whatever that looks like to each individual.

“My team and I spend a lot of time with our clients and have a very close relationship with them and their families,” says Vince, who works as a managing senior partner with SEIA and has more than 25 years of wealth management experience. “We provide each client with a collaborative process from the start, taking care to understand their personal objectives and custom-tailoring our advice to meet their specific needs.”
All the while, Vince encourages client involvement—an approach that gives his team a deeper understanding of their clients while helping clients become informed investors. This wouldn’t be possible without the support of his team members: advisor Jeff Zuanich, CFP® , CFA®, associate advisor Sara Hendrix, CFP®, client service manager Tammy Patterson and client service associate Stephanie Chow.
