Elwood & Goetz specializes in personalized and comprehensive financial planning, retirement planning, investment management, and tax planning to help clients organize, grow, and protect their assets through life’s transitions. We do all the heavy lifting and day-to-day optimizations to manage your financial life — so you don’t have to.
We are grateful to now serve more than 450 families across 35 states, and we’re proud to have an annual client retention rate above 99%.
Lindsay Elwood oversees all operations of the firm, and especially enjoys creating new firm efficiencies utilizing technology advancements. She has extensive experience and expertise in tax-efficient investment/portfolio management as well as in financial planning strategies relating to business owners, women, and university faculty/administrators.
