About Doug Gibson

SMART Group Houston is not your ordinary Financial Services firm. Most firms are transactional, focusing strictly on the accumulation of assets using arbitrary risk/reward criteria to select financial products. In our experience taking on additional risk will not necessarily yield greater returns. We approach our clients finances from a broader perspective. We focus not just on accumulating wealth but protecting it as well. We focus not just on your immediate needs, but how each piece fits in within your entire financial strategy. Our approach enables us to identify opportunities that other firms may, and usually do, overlook. We look for ways to make your money work harder for you in ways that you might never have imagined. We have found that many common investment strategies seriously underestimate the challenges facing you as you transition into other phases of your financial journey. Ultimately, we strive to give each client the opportunity to spend less time worrying about their portfolio and wondering whether your money will be enough to give you the financial freedom you expect. We do this, not through unrealistically optimistic and risky investments, but through a comprehensive strategy that outlines the ideal path to your financial success. In our view, taxes remain one of the biggest risks to wealth creation and accumulation. Every dollar is taxed in 4 ways, when you EARN it, when you GROW it, when you SPEND it, and when you PASS AWAY. At SMART Group, we won't file last years tax returns, but we will do your FUTURE tax returns by providing you with custom strategies designed to help you save taxes in each of the 4 phases of taxation. Our team of licensed CFP's and CPA's will help guide you throughout each step of your financial journey.
