No matter where you need guidance, we can help.
Investment management ⌄
As an independent advisor and fiduciary, we help you try to avoid mistakes such as chasing the market, panic selling, or taking too much or too little market risk. Our diversified investment portfolios are carefully crafted to weather the storms during market down turns, and capture the upside gain during market growth.
We use advance analysis tools that will identify your investment risk tolerance and monitor your risk level across all of your investment. By incorporating the risk of all your investment accounts, we are able to make recommendations based off your entire portfolio rather than the objectives of one account.
Financial Planning ⌄
We start with you and develop a deep understanding of where you are and where you want to go. Then we discuss concerns such as retirement, higher education, long-term healthcare needs, and legacy planning. We create a custom wealth plan that includes not only investments, but also advice to help you grow and protect your estate, minimize taxes, and optimize giving.
Guidance for Giving ⌄
There is no better feeling than knowing that your money is being used for a greater good. Even the smallest amount given can change someone’s life for the better. We can easily help you set up a plan where charitable giving is incorporated into your finances.
Life Insurance ⌄
It’s generally not a question of whether you need insurance, but rather how much protection you need and deciding on the appropriate type. Life insurance is a way to protect your loved ones financially after you die and your income stops.

Family Wealth Design
We believe true wealth is created on purpose, and that it's more than just the accumulation of assets. We want to take time to listen and help you strategically align your wealth with your values, for the primary purpose of enhancing your life experiences and building your lasting legacy.
Most investment firms will start with step 1 and help you to get an assessment of where you are, but then they move you quickly on the straight path to investment management based on your current circumstances.
We believe there's a higher way to not only manage investments, but also gaining a deep understanding of where you are and where you really desire to go.
When you choose to take the higher way of Family Wealth Design®, we'll discuss your concerns and long-term needs, hidden dreams, and legacy planning. We'll show you various scenarios to ensure you have a clear path to move forward comfortably, and then help you craft a wealth plan to take action. This includes investments, but also advice to help you achieve financial dreams, grow and protect your estate, minimize taxes, and optimize giving. We will help you build a true legacy that goes beyond you.
