Hi, I’m Jared Tanimoto, CFP® and I’m the founder of Ascent Wealth Advisors.
After many years of working for broker-dealers as well as time at an institutional firm that managed the money of some of the wealthiest families in the country, I recognized there was a major flaw in the system. It wasn’t designed to put the client first.
In fact, most of the professionals that claimed to be financial advisors were actually brokers in disguise--putting the interests of their employers and themselves well above the interests of the clients they served.
Not wanting to be part of that system, I decided to leave my sales commissions and incentive bonuses to become a pure fiduciary financial advisor. This led me to found Ascent Wealth Advisors, a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) firm, in 2017.
Today, we help people prepare for retirement, by implementing a well defined financial planning process combined with institutional quality wealth management
