Steve Wormeli is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional and member of the Financial Planning Association. Serving clients at Raymond James Financial Services in Bellevue, WA and the surrounding communities.
In 1997, after working several years for the traditional wirehouse brokerage firms, I established my own independent office with Raymond James to provide unbiased, fee-based wealth management and exceptional personal service. Over the years, our business has grown and we now serve individuals and families throughout Washington State and beyond.
We offer several methods for investing, including institutional-quality active portfolio management, as well as a passive, customizable program we call Managed Index Portfolios. We also provide our clients access to some of the world's premier money managers through Raymond James Consulting Services, including exclusive boutique managers.
We can help you develop a personal financial plan, consolidate your investment accounts, and serve as your private wealth manager on an ongoing basis. And as Investment Advisor Representatives, we serve as fiduciaries, so you’ll have the confidence of knowing that our recommendations are made with your best interest in mind.
By demonstrating our objectivity and providing service that’s personal and responsive, we aim to build a relationship with you for the long run.
