Market Volatility

It's important to keep your investments in line with your risk tolerance and long term goals. Call us now for your portfolio analysis. Don't risk losing too much of your nest egg in the next market downturn.

Fee Only vs. Brokers


We are a 100% Fiduciary adhering to the highest standard of a CPA. A fiduciary is someone who is legally bound to act in your best interest. Not to be confused with Suitability, which is the standard brokers adhere to. This suitability standard does not require the advisor to put the client's needs first but who's duty of loyalty is to the brokerage firm the advisor works for. 


We do not receive any commissions. As a Fee Only Independent Investment Advisory firm and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER, all our compensation comes directly from the client. There are no hidden fees, no third party bonuses or compensation, no sales of any kind of any financial or insurance products. This allows us to be unbiased in selecting investments, thus creating high quality, low fee and fully transparent portfolios.


Tax planning has never been so important! The tax code has recently been reformed adding many new provisions and eliminating others. Failure to plan accordingly may result in overpayment of taxes. Call us now to book your tax & financial planning appointment. Don't get caught in the complicated maze of changing tax law!
