Fee-Only financial planner located in Radford, VA, serving clients in the New River Valley and across the country
Ashley Coake is a Radford, VA fee-only financial planner. Cultivate Financial Planning provides comprehensive and objective financial planning to help clients organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Ashley Coake is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.
It was at Radford University, where she graduated summa cum laude, that Ashley Coake discovered her passion for finance, thanks to some great professors and a wonderful organization. She participated in and was the first female president of the Student Managed Investment Portfolio Organization (SMIPO), which is a student led organization that manages real assets for the Radford University Foundation (almost $2,000,000 now). She continues to be involved with SMIPO by serving as Chair for the organization’s Board of Directors.
Ashley started her career in finance at the National Bank of Blacksburg during college. From there, she worked for a Broker Dealer that managed investments, where she passed her investment advisor representative and life, health, and annuity insurance licensing exams. However, it always seemed like investing was just one piece of a much larger puzzle. Continuing her push for the remaining pieces of the puzzle, she joined an independent Registered Investment Advisory firm, where she earned her CFP® certification. In 2018, Ashley started Cultivate Financial Planning.
When Ashley isn’t engaged in Financial Planning, you’ll likely find her outside on the farm with her husband Matt where they raise chickens, pigs, cows, and a garden.
