We want to be your partner on your financial journey!

We are a team of three experienced advisors, with five additional team members dedicated to providing the best experience we can for our clients.  We have chosen a more independent route, not part of a bank, mutual fund or insurance company, so we can put the needs of our clients first.

We believe in providing comprehensive financial planning for our clients, using software from eMoney Advisor, who we believe is a leader in the industry.  Clients have a portal with single sign on where they can see in one place their bank balances, investment accounts, monthly statements, financial planning and much more.  Our goal is to use the great technology in the industry to provide the best experience we can for our clients. 

Start your journey with us today.  Use this link to "Start Your Journey", or with the button above.  You can also use this link to complete a Risk Free Analysis  to help us work with you to design a portfolio based on your needs.

How do we help our clients?

We start by understanding the goals of our clients.  Then we create and implement a comprehensive financial plan that is unique to them.

What is active management of investments?

We add more equities in strong markets and become more defensive in weak markets.

Are the advisors Fiduciaries?

Yes.  Elaine Manley, Scott Manley and Linda Tjiputra are Fiduciaries.  We are ethically bound to act in our client's best interest.

Who is an ideal client?

We partner long-term with higher income individuals and families accumulating assets as well as those at or near retirement, managing their investments based on their financial plan.

Why is our office design unique?

We provide an optimal experience based on client needs.  We have a Café, Living Room and offices designed for their comfort.  Explore our unique office design for yourself.

What do we expect from our clients?

We expect our clients to be engaged in the financial planning process and implement the agreed upon action items.  They work with us in a courteous and respectful way and we do the same with them.
