Our Firm



Southwest Financial & Retirement Services

The prospect of building wealth through successful investing has never held more appeal or more risk. But like any market, with increased demand for financial products has come increased supply and a confsuing array of investment chocies and professional advsiors to work with. Investors are faced with what can be daunting choices. I recognize the importance of getting to know you – your financial needs, your financial goals and your lifestyle. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER ™ my duties and loyaties are to you, my client, and I have structured my practice to reflect that commitment.  

My practice was established in 1995 to provide ongoing professional advice to investors while helping them with their individual investment objectives without the pressure of a commissioned based practice. I am able to do this by offering truly objective financial advice on a mixed fee basis, of either an hourly rate, a percentage based upon assets under management, or in limited cases a traditional brokered account. This flexibility in the method of compensation allows me to pursue your needs and goals with fair compensation to our firm. Many on my clients have been with me for over twenty-seven years so we know our philosophy works.

I can help you define your long-term investment objectives and build a personalized investment portfolio . I will also help you make informed decision about all aspects of your financial picture, including:   

  • Tax-advantaged investing - to reduce your tax liability and let more of your money work for you.
  • College planning - long-term planning to ensure you’re ready when your children are.
  • Retirement planning - to design an investment strategy to help you pursue all of your retirement goals.
  • Personal Asset Preservation – making sure you have the right life, long term care and disability insurance for your biggest asset – yourself.
  • Investment portfolio analysis - to keep you informed of how your investments are performing, and to make adjustments as needed as well as using strategic asset allocation and the efficient frontier approach to investing to work towards minimizing investment risk.
  • Estate planning - for preservation of wealth from generation to generation
  • Strategic Asset Management (SAM) - providing you with fee-based asset management with access to over 3,500 mutual funds, as well as individual stocks and bonds.
