Carey McNeal 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.

It's difficult to put a label on what we do. We are more than just a money manager, more than an advisor. You could think of us as chairman of your personal board of directors. Our clients charge us with the privilege and responsibility of managing their entire financial strategy. Families appoint us to give the same attention to their money as they would themselves, putting both day-to-day transactions and long-term investments in our care.

What's unique about this? First, it means our clients really trust us. We've proven to them that we really do what we say we can do.

Also, we focus on every aspect of personal finance: investments, trusts, insurance, income, assets, taxes- not just one or two. Why? Because most people don't have the time, expertise, or desire to piecemeal these important segments together. They want to know that every financial tool available is being synchronized to achieve the best results possible. And so do we.
