COMPREHENSIVE FINANCIAL LIFE PLANNING
Fee-Only & Fiduciary
I believe financial planning should be a profession rather than an industry - that planners should act more like doctors than car salesmen. When you go to a doctor, you expect the best diagnosis for your health, not to be sold a product. The same should be true of your financial planner.
As a Registered Investment Adviser, I am held to the highest fiduciary standard in the industry. I am required to serve my clients' interests first in all aspects of planning and to fully disclose potential conflicts of interest. This isn't just a policy for me, it's a legal obligation.
As a fee-only financial planner, I only am compensated by my clients for my advice. I don't have the conflicts of interest which come from compensation based on product sales, commissions, kickbacks, or other forms of hidden compensation. My loyalty is to my clients.
I take an integrated approach that considers your entire financial picture. Planning goes beyond investments and retirement to incorporate cash flow analysis, tax planning, risk management, career development, debt management, estate planning, and more.
I view money as a tool to help you achieve your great life, both now and in the future. I begin by understanding your life goals and then develop your plan to help you achieve them. Every plan and every recommendation is designed with one goal in mind: to get you to your goals.
