Fee-Only financial planner with locations in San Rafael, CA, San Ramon, CA, and Boise, ID, serving clients locally and across the country

Trevor Scotto is a San Rafael, CA fee-only financial advisor serving clients locally and across the country. Fiduciary Financial Group provides comprehensive financial planning to help professionals, business owners, near retirees, and individuals experiencing life transitions organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s ever-changing journey. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Trevor Scotto is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.

Trevor Scotto began his career with a strong foundation in tax and accounting. Soon after graduation, he earned his CPA license preparing tax returns for high-net worth families and small business owners. During this time, he also completed graduate courses in taxation from Golden Gate University in San Francisco. From there he further expanded his accounting expertise by joining the Finance team at Glassdoor, a startup tech firm later acquired for over $1B.

While he was able to gain a strong foundation in accounting, tax and business operations, Trevor left the tech industry to become an advisor to make a bigger impact directly. Trevor does this by managing the finances for a few select families and business owners in the Bay Area. He helps his clients simplify their lives by providing evidence-based investment strategies and goal based financial planning. Trevor believes in building long-term relationships based on trust and transparency. Trevor has positioned himself to be the go-to financial co-pilot for clients and their families. He emphasizes the importance of always having a family-oriented culture where clients feel at home.

At Fiduciary Financial Group, we hold ourselves to the highest standard of professional ethics... the fiduciary standard of care. It's a simple concept yet absent in many client/advisor relationships: Only provide advice and recommendations that are in the best interests of the client. Always. No exceptions.

We offer in-depth financial planning and wealth management.

This involves reviewing not only a clients budget and investments, but also their estate plan, beneficiary designations, mortgage and business financing, insurance documents, tax returns, etc. We are completely detached and unincentivized to solicit any particular investment product. Our incentive is simple: grow your money as much as possible within the confines of your tolerance for risk. We focus on liquid & publicly traded investments. We will, on occasion, branch out into non-publicly traded offerings for the sake of diversification but have a strict rule that if we put our clients funds into such a vehicle, we will also have invested some of our own money in the same offering.

Retirement Plan Consulting for Small Business Owners

The world of retirement plan design, administration, and ongoing investment management oversight is complex. With our ability to speak the same accounting language as your bookkeepers, payroll, and tax professionals, we can serve as the quarterback for your company retirement plan.

Strategic Philanthropy

Through our strategic partnership with Cogeo and vast network of estate planning attorneys and tax professionals, we can provide expertise on making your gifts count. Planned giving, life insurance as a gift, donor advised funds, charitable remainder and lead trusts, charitable gift annuities, etc. If you want to give, let us coordinate the effort.
