RAMON, Calif. (PRWEB) March 12, 2019
The Diamond Group Wealth Advisors, a Northern California-based wealth management firm, today announced that it has merged with Ora Citron, a private wealth management firm, based in Walnut Creek, CA. Effective immediately, Ora Citron will begin operating with The Diamond Group Wealth Advisors. They will continue to serve their clients using both offices, located in Walnut Creek and San Ramon, California.
“We felt strongly that there was a powerful connection between our two businesses,” said Marilyn Suey, founder, and CEO of the Diamond Group Wealth Advisors. “We have known each other for several years and admire how similar our values and the processes that we both use to serve our clients.”
“Joining forces with Marilyn and her team is a natural fit for my business and allows me to focus on delivering a superior client experience for my passion serving women in transition,” said Ora Citron, founder, and CEO of Ora Citron Wealth Management. “We have found with the 'power of two' we can make an even bigger impact on our clients, their families, businesses and the causes they care about deeply.”
Serving businesses, families, and individuals in the greater Bay Area, both wealth management firms provide caring, knowledgeable financial solutions and customized advice for their clients to pursue their life goals and aspirations on the road to financial independence.
Both firms have a passion to serve women as well. Marilyn Suey is the founder of the Savvy Women Community where she hosts events to provide education, information and support women to build a brighter future for themselves, their families and the causes they care about deeply. Ora Citron has been a champion in the financial life planning for “Women in Transition” for ten years. They both are at the forefront of building financial life planning programs that serve the needs of women, whether married, single or in a life transition.
“We are so pleased that we were able to support the merger of these two outstanding financial planning and advisory firms,” said Daxs Stadjuhar, Managing Partner, The Financial Services Network. “Ora and Marilyn working together are right in line with the continued trend of advisors wanting their clients to benefit from more robust and responsive teams.

We are pleased that we can continue to deepen and expand our expertise as well as grow the firm. We are grateful to our colleagues that have brought us to this moment and look forward to our firm’s continued evolution and expansion.
