Comprehensive Financial Advising Services for Complete Confidence

Our proven process for financial planning and management follows four phases:

Most financial advisors start the conversation by looking at financial statements, balance sheets, and asset summaries. We want to learn about your values, your lifestyle, and your hopes for the future. With context, trust, and rapport established, we’ll turn to the numbers.

Most people seek financial advice because they want a clearer picture of life after retirement. Most financial advisors respond by presenting packages and selling products. We’re here to change that. We commit to educating our clients on their options and what’s behind them so that they are empowered to make choices that work for them.

We build plans that account for everything from A-Z. Between A and Z, life happens. That’s why our plans are living, breathing documents, accounting for a myriad of scenarios, and are guaranteed to change as life unfolds.

Whether we’re managing their assets, helping them navigate the sale of a business, mitigating their risks, or planning their estates, we have one goal: Setting our clients free to live.

Living life leads to new discoveries, and so this process repeats itself, in a life-long cycle. With Design™ Wealth, you’ll be living empowered.

Investment Services

If your financial phase of life demands more proactive financial growth, optimized investment services, risk management, and tax planning may be the key.

Life Stage Portfolios

An investor’s nest egg is too important to assume that recovery from losses is inevitable and within a reasonable timeframe. Our Life Stage Portfolios seek to participate in market growth and protect during persistent downtrends by utilizing protective hedging techniques.

Market-Based Strategies

A long-term buy-and-hold approach can play an important role in a comprehensive investment plan. Buying good long-term investments based on academic research, solid fundamentals, and long-term growth potential is the basis of a sound buy-and-hold investment philosophy.
