We believe financial well-being and personal well-being are two sides of the same coin and there is no point in having one without the other. And achieving financial independence is the direct result of balancing your goals and dreams with your financial resources. The financial complexities of today's world are daunting – preparing for retirement, investing your money, minimizing your tax bite, making sure you don't outlive your assets, paying for college, protecting your estate and those you love, and the list goes on. How to tackle these issues while still going about your daily lives can be overwhelming. Quite often, the problem is not knowing where to turn for sound and objective, professional advice – advice that will ideally provide peace of mind, financial security, and confidence while minimizing anxiety and uncertainty.



For the team at Financial Independence, nothing is more important than providing our clients an exceptional experience, one that is driven by a genuine concern for people and guided by a set of core values defining who we are.

This is the void Kevin felt when he interviewed with other firms and why he was so pleased to join Financial Independence.
