    The straight scoop:… If you’'re like me, you don'’t like partial truths, misleading statements, puffery, or anything else that smacks of bias. In that vein, I have taken great pains to create a fully independent investment advisory and financial planning practice that is honest and transparent to its core. If you'’ll spend a few minutes on our website (button above), I am certain you will find our approach to be straightforward and sincere.

I. Value Statement
  • View Value Statement
    Beware of watered-down advisor credentials. The credentials I have took me almost 13 years to acquire. Paladin rates credentials, too, and gives each of my credentials its best rating of 5 stars: CFA - "The most highly regarded credential that is currently available to financial advisors." CFP - "The most highly regarded financial planner designation." CPA - "The most recognized credential in the U.S." I've done my homework.

D. Limited Engagement Services

  • Financial Plan Reviews
  • Investment Portfolio Reviews
E. Comments
  • Although we utilize the services of a custodian to carry our clients' accounts, we are completely independent of our custodian (which is very different from being an independently-run office of that custodian). This arrangement allows us to pursue our clients' interests without interference from an outside party.
