Adam Wright is a Member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors

The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is a leading professional association of Fee-Only financial advisors - highly trained professionals who are committed to working in the best interests of those they serve.

NAPFA members live by three important values:

  • To be the beacon for independent, objective financial advice for individuals and families.
  • To be the champion of financial services delivered in the public interest.
  • To be the standard bearer for the emerging profession of financial planning.

You want to reach a point in your life where you can work as much or as little as you want. Some call this “retirement.” At Wright Associates, we call it “financial independence.”

Here’s the thing, though: There is so much noise around retirement planning. Knowing which generic advice to apply to your circumstance can be disorienting.

If you’re like most people, your retirement plan is based on “hoping for the best”. You want to make the right retirement choices today, but don’t know if you are.

We believe: You deserve to have a plan that lets you live your retirement by design, not by default.

That’s why we’ve devoted our professional lives to ensuring that the “what ifs” of tomorrow don’t wreck the joys of today. In other words, we want you to mark “Financial Independence Day'' on your calendar, then get there with confidence.

Here’s how we’ll help:

  1. Get a plan. After spending several sessions getting to know you, your goals, and your finances, we’ll build a retirement plan with words you can understand that clearly covers how you’ll get from where you are now to where you want to be.
  2. Get a friend. No good retirement plan is etched in stone. Your plan should evolve as your life does. Our financial planning process and our commitment to cap the number of clients each of our advisers serve, ensures your plan never collects dust.
  3. Get the most out of life. Stop wondering if your best interests are being served, if you’re paying too much in taxes, or if you’re on track for your goals. With regular, customized reporting and a team a call away, you’ll always know right where you stand.  

Schedule a call to start the conversation

We understand how difficult it can be to know who to trust with so much at stake, so our process is intentionally designed to eliminate the pressure. Your initial retirement plan, often including a dozen or so recommendations, is complimentary. It will give you a glimpse at who we are, how we work and, ultimately, if we’re your best fit.

So, schedule a call and let’s explore a plan that dials down the worry and cranks up the confidence!
