How does this work?

Just like Tesla's car line-up spells SEXY, my firm operates by the following Four Core Principles: S - Simplicity (Human Financial Advisor focused on low-expense portfolio management & ongoing financial planning) E - Elegance (Beautiful User Interface, One-Page Investment Policy Statement, and a One-Page Financial Plan customized to YOU) X - Cross Out cash flow to confusing/expensive financial products or expenses that don't align with your values. Y - Your Goals Matter (Not just focused on generic information & rules of thumb) Successful Entrepreneurs and other high-income professionals are my ideal clientele. It's my job to give mission-critical advice in the face of irreducible uncertainty. Fiduciary Financial Advisor providing investment management & financial planning services. Things I love about my business: Portfolio management, retirement planning, and collaborating with clients from a diverse array of backgrounds.
