Archvest Wealth Advisors is a comprehensive financial planning firm with specialized services focused on the four pillars of planning: investments, estate, taxes, and insurance. We work together with you to assess your individual circumstances, your personal needs, and your long-term goals—because there are lots of options out there.

We want to be your financial advisor for the next 30 years.

Eric Lai and John Wenzel start by working together to develop a personalized investment plan for you. We then monitor that plan and update it as needed—keeping you informed from the start about the risks and potential reward. The strategies we embrace are grounded in long-term economic truths, adjusted for today's market and your individual circumstances.

In our fiduciary obligation to put you first, we limit the number of clients we serve. That way, we're available when you need us to listen, plan, guide, and even celebrate.
