About Henry Vail II
Wealth advisor Henry E. Vail believes in taking a holistic approach to managing his clients’ finances. His firm, Sucré-Vail Wealth Advisors, specializes in serving the diverse financial needs of physicians, and Mr. Vail himself approaches his work much as one of his clients might approach a patient consultation. Before suggesting a course of action, he employs the “ask, listen, diagnose, educate, treat” principle of service, recommending wealth management strategies that meet clients’ individual needs and ensure that they are engaged throughout the course of the relationship. After initial consultations, Henry Vail II, much like a physician referring a patient to a specialist, connects his clients with third-party institutions that choose the best money managers from every market sector to handle clients’ specific needs.
This model of service, along with the firm’s commitment to cutting-edge technology and top-tier ethical standards, earned Sucré-Vail an MD Preferred Financial Advisory Service Award. Henry E. Vail sees the award as an acknowledgement of his company’s commitment to leading its clients in a lifelong journey that encompasses not only matters of wealth management but also matters of overall financial wellness.
In addition to providing asset management and protection services, Henry Vail II specializes in guiding physicians through wealth accumulation, trust and estate planning, and charitable giving. While Mr. Vail provides his clients with comprehensive wealth management to meet their busy schedules, he also makes available on his firm’s website a host of resources (including market summaries, industry news, and calculators) that enable clients to educate themselves.
Henry E. Vail prepared for his career during his time at Lamar University, where he earned a BBA in Marketing and Finance. Later, he completed the Certified Financial Planning curriculum at the University of Houston. Outside work, Mr. Vail enjoys playing golf, fishing, white-water rafting, and boating. He lives near Houston, Texas.
