About Centurion Wealth Management

There should be a more endearing term for "client" as you are more than just people we work for. To us, you're more than a balance sheet and risk tolerance data.

Our clients are people who open up and share with us their aspirations and goals, their obstacles and fears. They share so much more with us; anecdotes from their childhood, news about their growing families, stories of their travel adventures, news of their child's acceptance into their college of choice, and celebratory news of their recent promotion or business success.

They also reveal their less exciting, or sometimes devastating news; being laid off at work, an unfortunate automobile accident, a pending divorce, details about a recent medical diagnosis, and the death of a spouse, parent, or loved one.

Our clients entrust us with the personal aspects of their lives; and together we celebrate their victories as well as mourn their losses. Surely, there must be a more endearing term for our clients.

Financial Advice & Consulting

Our financial advice is tailored for you. Each person, family, and business is unique. Our job is to have a deep understanding of what is important to you and your family. Once we know what is important to you, we start to take inventory of all the moving pieces (assets AND liabilities), and begin collaborating on designing a long-term Financial Plan for you.


Do you have a customer satisfaction or refund policy?

Services and cost are customized for each client and their family, but no set policy is in place.

What services do you provide? What are your specialties?

We offer all services. Anything financial-related in your life is something that we have the knowledge and experience in advising.

What is your experience? How many clients do you currently manage?

We have over 200+ families that we work with. My experience is 9 years in the industry but also acquiring four advanced designations to obtain the knowledge that very few advisors have. These designations include the: - CFP® (Certified Financial Planner) - CPWA® (Certified Private Wealth Advisor) - CIMA® (Certified Investment Management Analyst) - ChFC® (Chartered Financial Consultant)

What financial institution(s) do you represent?

Our firm's name is Centurion Wealth Management. We are an independent company based in McLean, VA. We partner with Fidelity to custody our client's accounts.
