As a fee-only financial planner, my focus is to offer unbiased financial advice to help you achieve your life goals. - Taylor Payne, CFP®, CPA, PFS

Fee-Only financial planner located in Evansville, IN, serving clients locally and across the country

Taylor Payne is a Evansville, IN fee-only financial planner. Payne Wealth Partners, Inc. provides comprehensive and objective financial planning to help clients organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Taylor Payne is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.
Taylor's strong background in finance and his even stronger desire to help others came to a crossroads in 1989 when he started his own business, Payne Wealth Partners, with the expressed interest of assisting those with a high net worth to plan and invest their wealth appropriately.
A Columbia, Mo., native, Taylor graduated with a bachelor of science degree in business administration, with a major in accounting, from the University of Missouri in 1975. He worked at the CPA firm Deloitte and Touche in St. Louis and later as vice president of finance at Black Beauty Coal before making the life-changing decision to start his own business.
Taylor started the company by going down a very non-traditional route: Looking at planning and investing from a client’s perspective. He spent the early years trying to convince the marketplace that Payne Wealth Partners was worth hiring, that a true planning function along with an investment outlook was vital to the client. The hard work has paid off.
“The marketplace is more desirous now for the planning/investment service team to help them accomplish their goals,” Taylor said. “In the past, people hired me or Chad (Sander, vice president), but now they hire the full firm. They’re looking for a more complete solution.”
As investment manager of Payne Wealth Partners, Taylor works with a client to create and follow through on an investment policy that meets the client’s goals. He monitors specific areas of investment markets and relays information to the investment committee and helps determine strategic and tactical changes.
Taylor received his Certified Public Accountant certification in 1979 and his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation in 1991. He has also earned the Personal Financial Specialist (PFS) designation, which indicates expertise in the personal financial planning area of the public accounting profession. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the Indiana Society of CPAs (INCPA), and the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA).

Taylor’s desire to help others isn’t limited to his client base — he is involved in many organizations in the Evansville community. Taylor sits on the board of the Ronald McDonald House of the Ohio Valley and is involved in the capital campaign for a Gilda’s Club in the Evansville area. He is a past member of the Evansville City Council and of the Area Planning Commission.
Taylor and wife Jenny are the parents of two daughters, Sarah and Laura, and three sons, Andrew, Ethan and Alex. In addition to spending time with his family, Taylor enjoys golf, reading and politics.
