It's not about us. It's about you. Our goal is to help you achieve financial success, however you define that.

Effective financial planning requires an ongoing commitment to the process of planning. Great planning ensures that you have resources available to accomplish the goals you are trying to reach, weather the surprises that you will face, or plan for the life transitions you will experience in the years ahead. Instead of worrying about dollars and cents, you can focus your energy on the personal needs of you and your family.

We deliver the personal touch of a small business with the resources and expertise of industry giants. We view our client relationships as partnerships working on a common set of goals. Your life goals dictate the focus of our relationship and we adjust our planning process to you, not the other way around.

We are an independent, fee-only financial planning and investment management firm, and we are everything Wall Street is not. We offer a refreshing, modern spin on the financial planning process in conjunction with an evidence-based approach to investing. We adhere to a fiduciary standard of care at all times when working with our clients. As a fee-only firm, we do not sell products, nor do we accept any third party compensation of any kind. Our allegiance lies solely with you.

We believe in a team approach to financial planning and investment management. We invest heavily in our team, our technology, and our education. As the need for specific products or services arises, we will either work with your existing advisors (insurance agents, attorneys, accountants, bankers, mortgage brokers) or introduce you to folks we know and trust to assemble a cohesive, trusted team of experts working together as Your Personal Boardroom™.
