Mission Statement

Our core mission is to work with you to make your family and future even better. We help make your American dream come true and provide a substantial positive impact on you and your family for generations to come.

How We Started

Our company was formed because too many firms are focused on individuals and not on the entire family. It is well known that not having current, complete, and well-thought-out plans (including up-to-date legal documents) often leads to issues and conflict when there is a death in the family. In fact, Barry learned this firsthand with the death of his father.

Having a third party to assist you and provide professional advice is the best way to ensure that you make sound financial decisions.


Our clients initially work directly with Colonel Federici, a retired 30-year veteran of the United States Marine Corps (Reserves). He is a seasoned professional in the capital markets who will closely review your taxes, trusts, financial plans, legal documents, and investments before making any recommendations. Moreover, he works directly with clients to develop a family mission statement and a long term financial strategy, focused on the entire family.

FFWM partners with professionals and firms, including experts in economics and academia. Our investment philosophy is grounded in decades of academic research.
