About Clear Focus Financial

At ClearFocus, we believe the current times require a new and higher level of financial planning. We focus on the individual first and the numbers second. The fluid nature of today's economic climate requires constant vigilance and a higher level of understanding of individual needs in order to make the decisions necessary to help our clients to reach their financial goals.

Financial decision making, be it saving, spending, investing, or insuring is complicated and difficult on your own. There is no shortage of opinions and products being offered as the "best kept secret or magic bullet" for financial success.

The old approach of a one-time, off the rack product and solution just won't do. The retail financial planning and investment management industry has simply become a crowded market place of salesman and products, that does not lend itself to clear and prudent decision making. Individuals and business owners are forced to diagnose their difficulties and prescribe solutions based on limited information and sales pitches. It is critical for financial success that individuals and business owners make informed decisions that are based on their specific plan and not sales pressure.
