Financial Life Planning, retirement planning, values integrated investing.

Professional Focus and Services:

Are your investments supporting causes you don’t believe in? Values such as no private prisons, predatory lending, fossil fuels, genocide and paying women less than men? I help you align your financial and investing plans with your values, passions and goals.

Envision offers you a diversity of investment solutions to accommodate accounts of all sizes. His Envision Justice Series™ Portfolios integrate Planet Protection, Racial Equity Advocacy and Women’s Empowerment values. Depending on your account size, you may have access to further customizing the values integrated into your customized portfolio.

We believe that smarter investing decisions are based on an Envisioneering™ Financial Life Plan. This holistic, comprehensive approach helps you determine the amount of risk you need to pursue to reach your goals. A portfolio is then recommended based on the risk you need to take to reach your goal, not simply your comfort with investment risk. To make planning accessible to a wider audience, he pioneered a subscriptions-based financial planning model.
