Our Purpose

"We make a difference in thoughtful, caring, receptive people's lives by helping them make sound financial decisions and preventing them from making poor ones. Our purpose is to help you clarify your vision and values, and implement solutions to achieve successful outcomes. Knowing that you and your family are provided for in any event, allows you to focus on the more enjoyable, non-financial aspects of your life."

Why Us

  • Working with us, holistically, can help improve client outcomes
  • We take an academic approach utilizing Nobel Prize winning theories and mathematics
  • We're not a Wall Street firm or investment bank and don't sell proprietary investment products
  • We are disciplined and stick to the plan, in good times and bad
  • We integrate risk management, investment management and financial planning
  • Our team provides a better client experience than working with robots

Our Beliefs

  • If you believe in math and dislike taxes, you're going to love our strategies and tools
  • Minimizing taxes helps to improve client outcomes
  • It's just as important to win the tax game from age 60 to 100, as it is today
  • Being the best planner/advisor is more important than being the largest firm
  • Behavioral Economics is one of the single-most important factors in determining plan success
