Fee-Only & Fiduciary
The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is the country's leading association of fee-only and fiduciary financial planners.
Chris Floyd is a Dallas, TX Fee-Only Financial Planner serving Dallas and all surrounding areas. Paradigm Advisors specializes in providing objective financial planning to help clients build, manage, grow, and protect their assets through life's transitions. Chris Floyd is a NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisor and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional.
As a fee-only financial advisor, I enjoy using my extensive financial services experience to partner with my clients, helping you align your dreams and aspirations with an achievable financial life plan. Whether you are in the early stages of accumulating wealth, or you are navigating the waters of preserving existing wealth, it is my mission to help you create a plan that allows you to live life to its fullest while keeping you accountable to your future plans.
Prior to transitioning into investment management, I spent two years in public accounting with KPMG, which has provided me with unique insights into how taxes in particular affect financial planning and wealth management. I also spent over ten years in the hedge fund world as an equity research analyst, portfolio manager and ultimately partner at a multi-billion dollar Dallas-based hedge fund; and subsequently founded an investment firm focused on energy-related hedged strategies. Prior to joining Paradigm, I was the Chief Investment Officer for an ultra-high net worth family office in Dallas, Texas. I received a B.B.A. in Accounting from Millsaps College, and am a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and Certified Financial Planner (CFP®).
Perhaps the most important thing to know about me is how I view the service we provide: I see our financial guidance as an integral component of our clients’ happiness, as it keeps them from being a slave to the worries the topic of money can often bring.
When I’m not helping others plan for their future, I enjoy quality time with friends and family, spending time in the gym or a spin class, and time with my toes in the sand or snow skis strapped to my feet any chance I get. I also enjoy dabbling in art and design, especially discovering local and regional talent.
At Paradigm, we value objectivity, integrity and transparency. We provide fee-only financial planning focused on guidance and support. Our advisors don’t collect commissions on any investments we recommend, allowing us to offer truly objective advice.
We’ve created a three step process that makes it easy to collaborate and customize a plan tailored to your goals.
Step 1: Design
We want to understand who you are and where you want to be, both now and in the future. We’ll work together to aggregate your information, then we’ll design a plan that works for you. Paradigm Advisors uses Riskalyze to help discover your patented Risk Number®.
Step 2: Implement
We’ll help you take the second (and sometimes scariest) step: putting your plan into action. Whether we’re diving into the details around purchasing a new home or revising your estate plan, we’ll come up with solutions together. We provide strategic direction, asset allocation and investment advice.
Step 3: Live
Living your life with peace of mind should be a priority, but we’re all human. We know that life is unpredictable and its only constant is change. As questions start to arise, feel confident that a team of advisors at Paradigm will support you each step of the way.
