Deserve More

Expert investment advice with your values in mind  
We get to know our clients well so we can better advise and invest for them. Although we seek to maximize returns for our clients, we understand that everyone has different goals, values, and comfort levels with risk.  We believe that your portfolio should reflect your needs.
A legacy of success
Nine Decades of independent, personalized Investment management.
In the nine decades since Roscoe C. Ingalls and John T. Snyder founded this firm, countless investment firms of our size have been absorbed by major national organizations. Ingalls & Snyder, on the other hand, has remained independent. We have managed the firm in a highly conservative manner in order to best serve our clients’ interests and are proud that our approach and philosophy have allowed us to avoid the problems so often reported during periods of market instability.

About 2X Wealth Group
The finance industry has traditionally been a man’s world. We believe women’s financial needs are best understood by women with relatable life experiences and genuine financial expertise. When working with couples, we bring both partners into the financial conversation and provide the necessary education for understanding the game plan.

We are both investment experts with a strong track record of delivering results for institutional clients. Years of experience in both up and down market cycles gives us a keen eye for economic trends and deep understanding of how finance works. We combine our Wall Street expertise with a deeply personal mission to help other women.
