About Us

OUR FIRM

provides comprehensive investment management services to retirees, corporate executives, professionals, business owners and individual investors. We utilize a team approach in analyzing and planning a client's investment portfolio, estate plan, cash flow, income taxes, and retirement. Recommendations are based solely on your specific needs, circumstances and goals.

OUR PROCESS

is to partner with clients to establish and achieve financial goals through objective planning and management of investment assets. Our purpose is to help build, manage and preserve your assets. We put our client's interests first and strive for excellence in every facet of our practice. Our success is not measured by performance statistics but rather by our clients' success in achieving their goals.

OUR CLIENTS

share in the realization that by coordinating and managing today's financial decisions they can achieve their goals for tomorrow. They are individuals and businesses that expect excellence and have made a firm commitment to achieving it themselves. Our clients usually have no desire to manage their financial affairs on a daily basis, want to simplify their lives, and are willing to enter into a long-term relationship that is mutually beneficial. They are highly motivated to work with a professional advisor, not a sales representative.

Knowledge and experience is the key to obtaining a position as a chartered financial consultant. A college degree and good interpersonal skills are among the most important qualifications for chartered financial consultant workers.

The Certified Financial Planner (CFP®)designation is a certification mark for financial planners conferred by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards.
