Bryan Hancock is a Member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors

The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is the country’s 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

Timberchase Financial offers wealth management, including investment management, financial planning, tax mitigation, asset protection, and charitable giving. We use a consultative process with you and our team of experts.

We are committed to excellence. We believe in asset class investing, a methodical approach grounded in academic research, with an eye on tax efficiency and low investment expenses. Our estate planning advice is given in collaboration with your estate planning attorney or one of the attorneys on our panel of experts. Our tax planning considers your long-term needs in conjunction with your accounting firm or a firm with which we have a close relationship. We coordinate an insurance plan in conjunction with outside agents, so that you get only what you need, for less. Because we do not sell products or accept commissions, you can be assured that our product recommendations are based only on your needs.

The clients with whom we work often hold preservation of wealth as their first financial priority but also want to minimize taxes, plan for the transfer of their wealth on their terms, and make an impact on others through charitable giving. They desire to educate and empower those they love, that they may be wise stewards of their resources. We assist in these efforts, so your wealth can serve a greater purpose. As a completely independent firm, all of our efforts are focused on your goals. As a fiduciary, we act on your behalf. Being a fee-only firm creates a pristine relationship with you that is free from conflicts of interest.
