Our Financial Advisors create objective, customized strategies to help manage, preserve, and
transfer our client's wealth. We have developed a rigorous integrated process which
incorporates three key pillars: Fundamental Risk Process, Proactive Investment Strategies, and
Customized Financial Planning. Our structured system starts with your personal Risk Number®
which we use to establish a Risk Managed portfolio that responds to the changing markets. This
portfolio is then integrated into a Financial Plan that aims to increase the probability
that you will never run out of money, especially in retirement. Our comprehensive financial
planning will help organize your assets, insurance, liabilities, and estate documents to help
you simplify, consolidate and integrate every aspect of your financial future, so you can
devote your time to what's most important to you - your family and lifestyle.
As CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioners, we've long held ourselves to the fiduciary standard. We welcome the cornerstone of the new CFP Board's Code of Ethics, effective October 1, 2019, as "a CFP® professional's duty to act as a fiduciary, in the best interest of the client, at all times when providing financial advice to a client" to reflect the commitment to which all CFP® professionals are required, to comply to the high standards of competency and ethics.
We are an independent, fee only financial services firm, that has an alliance with LPL Financial, the nation's largest Independent Broker/Dealer (as reported in Financial Planning magazine June 1996-2019, based on total revenues). Our practice is currently limited to 120 families.
