Mark Brinser 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.
Other firms tout themselves as fiduciaries; we believe “fiduciary” has become merely a buzzword. The fiduciary standard states that an advisor must act in the best interest of the client. To us, there is no other way—we do this not to synch with industry talking points, but because it is core to who we are as a firm.
Because we are fee-only, we have no financial interest to advise you to select any one product over another. Trust is paramount to the basis of all our relationships; it’s even in our name. The definition of “stewardship” is “The careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care.”1 We are the true stewards of your financial plan, acting solely in your best interest. You can trust that the advice we offer masks no hidden agendas or incentives, either for the firm as a whole or for your personal advisor, who will work with integrity to identify your needs and tailor approaches to meet them.
