As a fee-only financial planner, my focus is to offer unbiased financial advice to help you achieve your life goals. - Steve Swicegood, CFP®
Fee-only financial planner located in Amarillo, TX, serving clients locally and across the country
Steve Swicegood is a financial planner based in Amarillo, Texas. As a fee-only fiduciary and independent financial advisor, he is never paid commissions and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.
Credent Wealth Management provides clients with extensive and strategic financial planning and advice, striving to create long-term value through a strong mission, vision, and adherence to company core values and beliefs.
Steve Swicegood, CFP®, began his financial services career in 1974 in the property and casualty insurance business. Prompted by his personal interest in investing and finance and by an increase in requests for help from his insurance clients, he began offering personal financial planning in the mid 90s.
Steve founded Conscious Money Solutions in 2009 with the specific intent of offering his clients holistic Financial Life Planning. This is a process that, in his words, “includes full consideration of how each financial decision impacts other areas of life that are touched by money. More importantly, Financial Life Planning is about helping clients make the money they have work for the life they want.”
In 2022, Conscious Money Solutions merged with Credent Wealth Management in a move designed to increase the scope of services available and assure continuity of high-quality, fee-only financial advice well into the future.
