Arlington Wealth Planning (AWP) is a Fee-Only Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) based in Arlington, Virginia. We bring peace of mind to individuals, families, and businesses by helping them to develop a financial plan to achieve their greatest aspirations.

Our focus is on the customer experience. AWP do not use pressure sales tactics and we do not push products. We do emphasize planning and explain concepts thoroughly at a pace that works for the customer, so that they build their financial expertise. Financial literacy is important. A well-educated client is one who understands financial concepts, so that we can have more meaningful conversations. If you are not there, we will get you there.

We perform holistic financial planning (as defined by the CFP Board and the Financial Planning Association, FPA) to ensure that all aspects of the client's financial picture are considered.

We have your best interests in mind as a "fee-only" RIA, which means that we are not incentivized to sell particular investments. We charge fees based on the services provided so that we limit conflicts of interest (we also offer tax preparation for a fee).

Owner and Chief Executive Officer, Greg Caramanica, is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER who brings the fundamentals of holistic financial planning to AWP. After over 27 years in the consulting industry, he built the company on a foundation of consulting principles where thorough analysis and communication provide a top-notch customer experience.
