Buoyant offers end-to-end, holistic financial management through a process that will grow, change, and flex as you and your financial
situation evolve. We begin by establishing a relationship, sitting down to map out your current financial life as well as your short- and
long-term goals and needs. From there we look forward, building a solid plan to help you achieve a strong financial future.
Our approach is based on the belief that a client's interests should always come first. As a Registered Investment Advisor we have a fiduciary obligation to place the interests of the client first. But, to us, it's more than an obligation. Putting the client first is why we were established.
We're not paid commissions, and there are no conflicts of interest within the firm. Some large banks and investment firms function with "dual hats;" simultaneously working as both investment advisor and broker or insurance salesperson, while claiming potential conflicts are disclosed. Buoyant Financial purposely steers clear of these murky waters.
Life is all about personal connections. Establishing and enriching connections with our clients as we guard their wealth is what puts a smile on our face at the end of the day. We engage mindfully with our clients as people, not merely as account numbers. Our job is to understand our clients, and their hopes, dreams, and fears. With that understanding comes a trusting relationship that is imperative to formulating a successful financial plan.

I fell in love with finance and investing 21 years ago, when I accepted my first role in banking. Along the way I've had the opportunity to work across the spectrum of the investment and securities space, from retail to institutional, and with nearly every type of traded product in a variety of contexts. I received my MBA from Queens University of Charlotte with a concentration in finance, and served as a Senior Vice President at Bank of America and a Senior Director at Ally Financial.
While I love the world of finance and investments, I always struggled with how these tools were delivered to the retail investor. In creating Buoyant Financial as a truly independent financial advisory, I can provide clients with smart, seasoned, conflict-free (and cost efficient) financial planning and management services.
By creating my own platform utilizing best-in-class technology, and taking advantage of low-cost instruments to precisely capture the performance of virtually any asset class, I'm able to deliver these services at some of the lowest costs available today. Being able to minimize the long term drag of costs is vitally important because of its impact on long term returns.
I've always enjoyed discussing personal finance with people, and seeing how a simple conversation may help them think about their personal situation differently. My hope is that a conversation might help you think differently about your finances, serve as a check that you are on the right path, or lead to a long term relationship with us.
Financial Planning for Individuals
Buoyant offers end-to-end, holistic financial management through a process that will grow, change, and flex as you and your financial situation evolve. We begin by establishing a relationship, sitting down to map out your current financial life as well as your short- and long-term goals and needs. From there we look forward, building a solid plan to help you achieve a strong financial future.
We will create and manage a portfolio that looks across your entire financial life, how you feel about risk, and how these things impact your tax bill. Our portfolios are built using low cost exchange traded funds. These funds are designed to track specific asset classes, and avoid the high fees that can come with mutual funds.
By gathering your entire financial picture into one central place, taking advantage of leading technology, and applying our honed expertise and insight, we can see where you are, where you want to be, and most importantly how to get you from here to there. This includes social security planning, the impact of Medicare, and other costs that can arise later in life.
