Institutional Quality Investment Management


Both insurance companies and government regulators rely on actuaries to project cash flows from investments and liabilities of pension funds, insurance companies, financial institutes, and more. One of the founders is an actuary who will bring that same knowledge and experiences to you in your financial planning. His experience comes from advising the enterprise level investment portfolio, cash flow, and debt portfolio of one of the latest insurance companies in the US.

Business Owner Financial Planning

Very high achieving entrepreneurs and business owners need special care and understanding at the early stage so that their large accumulated wealth will have the best impact on their family. So, we focus on helping business owners and high net worth individuals better understand the non-financial aspect of wealth management. 

Coming from a family of business owners, we feel it is important to help other business owners with their wealth accumulation and wealth transfer issues, with a special focus on pursuing family harmony. We have 5 years of accounting & tax strategy experiences with 3 different family owned private company clients as well as a bachelors degree in accounting with a Chartered Financial Analyst designation.

Major Purchase Assistance


Many financial advisors aren't legally required to act in your best interest. Instead, they only have to do what's suitable for you. 

"Big name" brokerage firms like Merrill Lynch and Wells Fargo may sell proprietary products even though they may not be the best product for you. This may create a conflict of interest and could increase your cost. 

They receive hidden commissions and third-party payments for selling products in addition to the fees they may charge.

They are generalists often focusing on investing alone with little consideration for your retirement goals, taxes, and income needs.


As a registered investment advisor, our advisors are held to a fiduciary standard legally requiring us to act solely in your best interest.

We don't sell proprietary products and only select investment vehicles from the available universe of securities that are considered best-in-class for our client’s needs.

Our financial advisor fees are simple and straightforward based on a small percentage of your assets under management or a fixed financial planning fee. We never charge commissions.

We specialize in retirement income planning and investment management with special attention to taxes, income, and preserving wealth in retirement.
