For too many people, hiring a financial planner is an expensive luxury reserved for the wealthy.  The truth is that everyone can benefit from financial planning - especially those who work hard every day to make ends meet.  The same financial mistake that would be a minor setback for a wealthy individual can prove disastrous to the average American family.  PennyTree Advisers specializes in providing the best advice possible to anyone in need. 

To achieve this goal we provide individual investment advice to select individuals on a fee-only basis. We charge either on a project basis - or, hourly and bill in increments of 1/10 of an hour.

We also provide high quality advice as a group benefit through employers, especially non-profits. 

And, we provide "second opinions" for consumers and litigation support services for their counsel through our Forensic Advisory Services.
