About Polaris Advisors, LLC

Mission/Philosophy: Polaris Advisors, LLC is a fee only Registered Investment Advisor helping individuals and small institutions build, manage and grow investment portfolios to support their lives and charitable missions.

We meet our clients and prospective clients in our office and/or their home. Relationship: We look for long term relationships with each of our clients.
