The present work introduces new scalar and fermionic degrees of freedom to the Standard Model. While the scalar sector is augmented by a complex scalar triplet and a doubly charged scalar singlet, the fermionic sector is extended by two copies of vector-like leptons. Of these, one copy is an singlet, while the other, an doublet. We explain how this combination can offer a solution to the muon g-2 anomaly and also lead to nonzero neutrino masses. In addition, it is also shown that the parameter regions compliant with the two aforementioned issues can stabilise the electroweak vacuum till the Planck scale, something not possible within the Standard Model alone.
