Three Guys - No Ties.

We approach investment management in a casual, comfortable setting — but more importantly without exclusive ties to one specific brokerage firm nor conflicts of interest because we operate on a Fee-Only™ basis.  That means we do not receive commissions on investments, so you can be confident that our interests are aligned with yours.
