As fiduciaries, we are legally bound to provide advice and guidance that we believe will be best for you and your financial needs.

With a long-term investor mindset, our strategies and portfolios are built around individual stocks and bonds offering a transparent investment approach.
YHB was created to help individuals, families, and organizations build wealth and establish paths to share that wealth with future generations. YHB professionals aspire to guide, educate, and advise our clients to help them find the peace of mind they deserve.
Our practice is located in West Hartford, Connecticut. While we have many clients that are local to our firm, we are proud to serve clients all over the nation.

Integrity. Independence. Insight. Those are the values displayed in our logo, and we carry them out in every service we provide for our clients. We use the highest ethical standards when handling clients’ financial plans and portfolios. We view our role as that of a guide to assist our clients in making sound decisions and constructing a solid plan for the future. We offer our clients seasoned advice designed to benefit them, their families, and in many cases, the familial generations that follow. Each member of our team shares the goal of enhancing the lives of our clients and helping set them on a path for a better financial future.
We take a team approach to investing and leverage our portfolio managers’ diverse backgrounds and experience. We use stringent standards of research and analysis to identify and select the individual stocks and bonds in which we invest. This process enables us to create personalized and transparent investment portfolios that reflect our clients' risk tolerance and preferences.
Each of our portfolio managers has a unique background that brings a specialized perspective and capable experience to the table. Our team members maintain a reasonable client load so that we can take the time to become well-acquainted with our clients and deeply understand their goals and needs.
Our team has the experience and knowledge to invest a portfolio for today while simultaneously thinking about tax planning, legal planning, and estate planning implications of decisions. We use an AUM-based (Assets-Under-Management) fee structure which offers our clients access to all of our resources and expertise with one simple annual fee.
In 1989, Paul Martel formed YHB Investment Advisors with the goal of providing independent, objective, investment management. Paul was developing a wealth management platform for a large insurance company in the Hartford region and determined there was an underserved community of wealthy individuals and their families.
He teamed with YHB Consulting, who provided financial planning services, that guided individuals and businesses in preparation of generational wealth transfer.
YHB Investment Advisors was at the advent of a vital transformation of the wealth management industry and has been a pillar of modern wealth management ever since. Our firm became multidimensional, providing wealthy individuals, corporations, and non-profits with a road map to help ensure the protection of their assets through generational transitions and taking a fundamental approach to investing client assets for future compounding growth.
In 2009, YHB Investment Advisors acquired a small boutique investment advisory firm with clients across the United States.
Celebrating 25 years, YHB Investment Advisors rang the bell at the NYSE in 2015.
YHB Investment Advisors has grown organically, primarily through client referrals, to become one of the largest Investment Advisors in the Hartford region.
