The advice you need when you need it

We appreciate that you have worked hard to attain your wealth — and we know that you desire to do good, invest well, and pass on not only your wealth, but also your values to the generations to follow. We also know that managing your wealth can be complex and time-consuming. As your Assante advisor, together we will help you define and prioritize each of your goals and we build a comprehensive wealth plan that will help you achieve them. We will walk beside you throughout your life to help you navigate all of the challenges and complexities you may face along the way. 

Our Guiding Principles

Welcome. As a Financial Planner my goal is to help my clients achieve financial independence.
I provide my clients with thought out investment strategies to build and maintain wealth. I do this by developing comprehensive financial strategies tailored to their personal dreams and goals, and by offering integrated financial planning, wealth management, investments, tax and estate services, insurance, and retirement planning.

You will be treated as we would want to be treated ourselves and we will earn and maintain your trust by doing what we say we will for you.

My approach works best with clients who have greater than $800,000 in investable assets and who seek to work with an experienced, trusted, professional advisor who takes a technical approach to building wealth.

You will receive investment strategies based on a scientific method. The strategies you will receive are organized along what we believe to be the dimensions of risk and return. The value added comes primarily from portfolio structure and execution rather than an ability to forecast markets.

My staff and I are passionate about delivering outstanding service.
