Funding Your Life and Protecting Against Risks
Money doesn't define who you are, but planning for the wise use of money can help you create the kind of life and lifestyle that reflects who you are and what's truly important in your life. It's tough to plan (and stay on course) in challenging economic times, but those challenges also include opportunities and potential rewards for those who can take advantage of long-term trends.
That's our job - to help you take advantage of opportunities and manage those things that could get in the way of you creating the life you want for yourself and your family. We're a bit of all these roles: coach, teacher, advisor, planner, researcher, confidante, but most of all, we've got your back. We'll try to anticipate issues, help you with decisions, and be there when you just need a sounding board.
Whether you’re facing retirement—or looking to better understand certain investment ideas—we can help you address your most pressing money questions.
Our first - and only - priority is your overall financial success in the context of your life. We want to learn more about your personal situation, identify your values, dreams and goals, and understand the level of risk you feel comfortable with. Long-term relationships that encourage open and honest communication have been the cornerstone of our success.
Our site is filled with educational videos, articles, presentations, and calculators designed to help you learn more about the world of personal finance. As you search the website, send me a note regarding any questions you may have about any particular investment concepts or products. We'll get back to you quickly with a thoughtful answer.
