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

Serving clients throughout the country and the Phoenix metro area for over 30 years, we are an independent, fee-only financial planning and investment advisory firm.

“Intrinsic Wealth Counsel” speaks clearly to what we aspire. We manage and invest money based on the Intrinsic value of companies. When it comes to life planning, Wealth is far more than money. We believe that intrinsic motivations are far more powerful a force for life goal achievement than extrinsic motivations. We also believe there are few, if any, who enjoy being “managed”— however, most of us recognize the need and benefits of seeking Counsel from a trusted advisor or friend. We aspire to be both.

We believe that the fundamental purpose of personal life planning is to help you achieve your ideal selves. We want for you:

  • To experience passion and vision in your life
  • To feel a sense of safety and peace of mind.
  • To recognize that it’s not about the money, it is about what you want to experience and your life goals. . It’s about your family, friends, loved ones and your dreams that may or may not cost money.
