Why work with and Independent Financial Advisor

Customized guidance based on your entire picture.

As an Independent advisor I am not tied to any particular family of funds or investment products so I have the freedom to choose from a wide range of investment options.

With all types of retail investment products to consider I am able to meet your personal needs and objectives.

Enjoy a different type of relationship

To offer advice closely aligned with your goals and needs I must first have a strong understanding of your situation.

This often takes regular, ongoing interactions.

As the business owner I have a strong sense of personal accountability to my clients.

Transparency – Understand exactly what you are paying

I offer multiple types of advice and will present you with your options and all costs or fees associated with them.

All costs and fees are explained and discussed prior to moving forward with any investment.


I am able to help you with a variety of your financial needs but for those that need to be handled outside Retire Early Planning, I will work with you to find the appropriate local person or firm.

Your money is held with an independent custodian

Your money is not held by the same person who advises you about how to invest it.

I use independent custodians, such as TDAmeritrade, to hold and safeguard clients’ assets.
