"Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe."
~ Abraham Lincoln ~
Financial planning, just like sharpening an axe, can take tremendous effort and precision. Anything but the best possible decision can adversely impact your wealth in ways you won't even realize for years. We take a planning-first approach with our clients, which means getting to know you and your life goals is priority number one. Every new client walks away with their own blueprint to achieve these goals, and we carefully track your progress as we work on them together.
"We don't have to be smarter than the rest. We just have to be more disciplined than the rest."

When it comes to investing, our focus has always been on carefully managing risk to help investors meet their goals. If you don’t truly understand your portfolio’s risk exposure, you may get burned at some point in the future. This is what happened to so many investors during the last financial crisis (2008-2009), but it doesn’t have to happen to you. Together we will figure out the best way to invest your money as we work toward the goals laid out in your financial plan, while at the same time managing risk so that your money is there when you need it.
"Knowledge is the process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification."

There’s no point in having a killer financial plan and investment strategy if they are impossible to keep track of. The internet is full of programs that are unclear, difficult to navigate, and offer “bells and whistles” that just clutter the page. From day one our clients gain access to our technology stack, which has been carefully selected because it is straight-forward, clear and concise. You'll be surprised how truly easy it is to know what's going on with your money.
