Collabria Capital, Inc.
Specializing in Comprehensive Financial Planning and Personalized Investment Management. I help busy professionals navigate a complex financial world, including managing equity compensation (RSUs, ESPPs, Stock Options).
Paul Saad is a San Ramon, CA fee-only financial planner. Serving clients both locally and across the US (virtually), Collabria Capital, Inc. provides comprehensive and objective financial planning and investment management to help busy professionals and seasoned investors organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. He has a sub specialty advising clients on equity compensation (RSUs, ESPP, Stock Options).
As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Paul Saad is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.
In 2004, after a successful career in corporate sales, Paul Saad decided that he wanted to try something new. Becoming a financial advisor was a perfect fit, because it combined his background in finance with a desire to have a more personal impact on clients. He realized that instead of returning to a corporate environment, he would enjoy helping individuals and their families succeed by guiding them through often complex personal and financial issues.
Working for the Global Wealth Management group of a leading Wall Street firm allowed him to gain valuable experience and learn much about the entire industry. However, eventually, he realized that he could best serve his clients through an independent business model that eliminated conflicts of interest and allowed for greater intimacy and objectivity. So he founded Collabria in 2012.
Born and raised in Montreal, Paul now lives in Danville, California with his wife Kathy and their dog Bear. Their three adult children are “out of nest” and busy launching their own careers/lives. Whenever possible, the whole crew likes to get together to enjoy all the great things the Pacific Northwest (and now North East!) has to offer.
