Basically, it comes down to the amount of training and ethics requirements. CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERS are required to take a two-year long course before sitting for a ten hour exam.

We believe that every Financial Advisor should be a CFP®. CFP®'s are held to a much higher ethical standard and are required to look at your financial situation as a whole. This is a crucial piece to us creating the best financial plan for you.

Our clients are more than just transactions to us and we work hard to learn as much as we can about you in order to build an authentic, trusting relationship!
