Financial Advisor Overview

Our firm is an independent registered investment adviser held to the fiduciary standard of care for our clients. We never take a commission to trade investments in your account so that our interests are aligned with yours. Our portfolio construction is focused on low cost securities based on decades of academic research that emphasize diversification across asset classes, geographies, and companies, as opposed to market timing. Our clients benefit from financial planning and analysis, including tax planning which is often overlooked by other firms.


Financial Advisor Experience

Michelle Gessner is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional with over a decade of expertise and an emphasis in tax planning to help insulate her clients from the real threat of rising income tax rates. Every client receives a comprehensive financial plan that is updated annually to ensure progress toward goals. Michelle is also a member of the Ed Slott Elite Advisors group, which gives her access to all of Ed Slott's resources as her back office for complex planning issues and requires her to stay on top of the numerous tax changes that impact IRA and estate planning. Members of this group train with Ed Slott on a continuous basis, pass a background check, and attend required workshops and complete mandatory exams. They are notified of changes to the tax code and updates on retirement planning, so you can be sure your retirement dollars are safe from unnecessary taxes and fees. For our investment clients, we utilize a team of CFA, CFP, and PhD investment professionals who are fiduciary only, using nothing but low cost investments for client portfolios.
