    Charles Johnson 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

    Experienced and objective financial planning and investment advice

    Our fee-only approach is different from fee-based approaches where advisors charge a fee AND sell products for a commission. Unlike most other financial planning firms, we’re compensated solely by our clients. The result? You get financial strategies that serve your best interests. There’s no outside financial incentive compelling us to do otherwise.

    Consistent Client Service Leads to Satisfied Clients

    A good measure of client satisfaction is client retention, and is something we focus our efforts on, and are very proud of.

    Driven by client retention and new referrals, we’ve become the largest NAPFA-registered fee-only financial planning firm between Boston and southeastern New Hampshire. Indeed, for every year beginning in 2010, Financial Advisor Magazine has included Resolute Financial in its national ranking of leading financial firms.

    Existing clients are the source of approximately half of our new referrals. Many other professionals (such as attorneys and accountants) also refer clients to us. Our clients and peers recognize our expertise and the importance of fee-only fiduciary relationships.

    Have confidence during market ups and downs, while working with our experienced financial advisors

    During the recent financial crisis, many people abandoned their investment plans and lived in confusion and fear. There is a better way. We work with each client to identify goals and keep them in focus in all market situations. Successful investing is a long-term process, and our professional fee-only financial planners can help you manage emotional reactions to volatile markets.

    What’s more, we explain our strategies and investments so you can see how all elements of your plan work together. Feel secure in your financial present and future. Let us focus on your finances so you can focus on the rest of your life.

    Our CFP® practitioners stay up-to-date on the latest in financial planning

    Resolute Financial is a partnership of seasoned financial planners. CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals are required to complete continuing education hours to maintain their certification, covering topics such as investments, retirement strategies, tax & estate planning, and ethics. Resolute’s advisors are often invited to speak as subject matter experts at National Association of Personal Financial Advisors conferences.
