TQM is Total Quality Management with Authentic Care
TQM Wealth Partners acts as a personal CFO for high-income earners and high-net-worth individuals – including successful business owners, executives, and families – helping them make financial decisions rooted in their personal values so they can cultivate long-term prosperity and preserve their legacies for generations to come.
Our mission is to empower clients to lead rich, fulfilling lives. We deliver investment guidance shaped by a unique Comprehensive Financial Plan that we tailor to clients’ individual needs. We then execute through this Plan to protect and grow long-term wealth in the most efficient and cost-effective manner.
The Q in our name stands for Quality – a gold standard we maintain in each of our relationships. With our team holding both Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and Retirement Management Advisor (RMA) credentials, we bring a deep level of expertise in wealth management best practices that is encoded in our organizational DNA. In all our engagements, we follow approaches that have been proven to work. We couple our in-house expertise with a bench of highly qualified professional partners with whom we have cultivated relationships throughout our years of experience – all designed to deliver you best-in-class service.
The M in TQM stands for Management – a nod to our role as your personal CFO managing the state of your finances over the lifetime of the Comprehensive Financial Plan. This means we are your financial quarterback, taking the reins of your financial plan, recommending the services we believe best meet your financial needs, adjusting portfolio allocation, and overall guarding your best interests to ensure your future is in good hands.
Quality and Management are the defining factors of how we engage with you; however, both mean nothing without a high degree of Care. As a family-operated business, with Founder and CEO Marcel Quiroga and her son Jordi Bakovic at the helm, we extend this familiar relationship to each of our clients; we treat both your successes and losses as our own. An unwavering belief in caring for your futures is one of the fundamental pillars upon which we stand. It underscores every conversation we have and serves as our North Star, guiding us to help you reap the greatest benefits of your most valuable asset – your life.
In some Spanish-speaking countries TQM stands for “Te Quiero Mucho”, which means “I Love You Very Much”
-- This is how we feel towards our clients.
“As a testament to my commitment to professional excellence I have received the 2023 Five Star Wealth Manager Award, which honors local Wealth Management Professionals in Boston; I am proud to be among those to be named a winner!”–Marcel V. Quiroga, Founder & CEO
