We would love to serve you in the following areas:
Many companies profit from or financially support activities that violate the values and convictions of Christian investors. Many Christian investors are unknowingly invested in these companies. I help people make investment choices to meet their long term financial objectives while aligning their investments with their faith convictions.
As a Certified Kingdom Advisor® my approach to financial planning advice is rooted in the belief that Biblical principles transcend time, economics, tax laws, political structures, and language. Through these principles I am convinced we can identify how to write a meaningful story with our lives and use our finances to support a meaningful life, not become our life. This is the essence of the tagline, “Making Money Meaningful”.
As a financial advisor I specialize in helping clients align their investment choices and strategies with their faith values and convictions through Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI). Through BRI we utilize investments that best reflect Kingdom activities. Under the umbrella of BRI, I strive for the best returns based on your individual risk tolerance, needs, and objectives.
If these core values are meaningful to you and are what you are looking for from a financial planner and financial advisor, please click on the 'Schedule a Meeting' button above or call 231.642.8001 to schedule a complimentary consultation. I look forward to hearing from you!
