Mission Statement

Todd’s mission is to help his clients and their families improve their financial lives. He does this by helping them manage complex financial issues, using a unique approach to investing, building and managing wealth throughout the various stages of life.


Understanding You: Understanding where you are in your stage of life and your future goals enables us to provide the options and solutions to guide you appropriately.

Charting Your Life Plan: Todd's passion centers on helping clients develop a road map to achieve their goals.

Evaluating Your Choices: Providing solutions and partnering with you to make logical decisions regarding your financial well-being.

Guiding Your Future: Serving as your trusted advisor, Todd develops and executes a comprehensive financial plan developing as life evolves.

Todd has intentionally built his practice around serving a smaller group of clients to maintain a high level of contact and visibility. As his client’s advocate and trusted advisor, he helps them plan and bring simplicity to the often complex world of finance and planning.

My practice focuses on total planning relative to a client or family relationship. While a key component of our practice is investment advisory services, much more focus is placed on the total picture of a client's life. Todd assists his clients with a wide range of planning concerns incorporating much more than just investments.
