Our Mission: To Inspire Our Clients to Live with Intention
Integrity and Intelligence with Purpose
Investing with purpose is a tricky thing. Many of us are distracted by the immediate needs of daily life to the extent that it is hard to keep track of our investments on a daily or even weekly basis. It helps to have a friend who knows our financial goals, who can provide good advice and gentle reminders at the right time. It is a bonus if that friend has years of experience and knows how to make sense of fluctuating markets and confusing terminology, then present information in a way that is easy for anyone to understand. Such a friend would allow us to take advantage of opportunities and make decisions with more confidence.
We continually strive to be that helpful friend for our clients. The professionals at Intentional Wealth Advisors continually provide our clients with the tools and information needed to accomplish their short- and long-term financial goals. We are here to guide our clients through a complex, sometimes emotional, economic environment, and to inspire them to live with intention.
Intentional Wealth Advisors strives to provide clients with some of the best professional and personal service they have experienced in the financial industry by paying attention to detail and getting to know our clients individually. We firmly believe in understanding and pursuing clients’ long-term financial goals based on their personal financial situation and risk tolerance. We also firmly believe in helping clients stay focused on what matters most, in life and in the market.
Communication is Key
We know that taking care of clients’ expectations and concerns is as much a part of our job as managing their investments. In response to the 2008-2009 disruption in the market and all the resulting uncertainty, we further increased client communication to help our clients remain focused on what matters.
Reliable Fee-Based Service
It is very important to note that our growth and success are directly tied to our clients’ success. Intentional Wealth Advisors has a fiduciary responsibility to act in our clients’ best interest. We provide our clients with comprehensive advice tailored to each client’s unique situation. Initial consultations are free of charge, and our practice is predominantly fee-based. We are also judged by how much our clients appreciate our services. So even when the market is fickle, our services remain honest, reliable, and affordable.
