Paradigm Financial Advisors, LLC provides comprehensive Wealth Management services for our clients. We utilize a team approach in analyzing and planning a client’s investment portfolio, estate plan, cash flow, income tax planning, and retirement goals. All recommendations are based solely on your specific needs, circumstances and goals. We serve our clients in a fiduciary capacity and pledge to act in our clients’ best interest at all times. Assets are managed in a prudent, disciplined fashion with emphasis placed on risk management, low cost and consistent results.
Our clients are predominately very active & self-reliant "retirees" , pre-retirees & "prudent-investor" types (self-made millionaires, former business owners, professionals, M.D.'s,executives,"baby-boomers' and "early retirees").
We take great pride in the fact that nearly all of our clients come to us on a referral basis and our retention rate is very high (with the majority having been with us 10 years or more).
Lastly...we believe we are simply in the business of helping active, self-reliant retirees & pre-retirees manage their financial resources and realize "realistic' returns on their investments while achieving their long-term financial goals with a minimum amount of time,effort & stress.
