About Us

Who We Are, What We Stand For

We redefine wealth management by helping our clients articulate their vision for the future, navigate the risks of the market, and create a legacy that starts today. We start by understanding what our client’s value about money and what they envision for their future. We go beyond helping our clients reach their financial goals by uncovering the gaps in their financial plan and current investment lineup. We also work hard to educate our clients on our process and offerings because we understand everyone has different levels of comfort and knowledge. We serve clients in all stages of life, which is why we provide a high level of personalization for our services using tools such as vision boards, risk tolerance software, and comprehensive financial planning. Our advisors act as fiduciaries meaning we are legally and ethically bound to act in our client’s best interest. Our clients become part of the WealthWise Family and, as such, we strive to support our clients through living out our values of integrity, competency, and care.

Our Values

WealthWise Financial Services delivers personalized strategies that embody these values:




Our Commitment

We help our clients pursue their passions by striving to take the worry, fear and concern out of wealth management and financial planning.


Our Philosophy

At WealthWise Financial Services we navigate economic and market risks through a tactical investment philosophy and construction of core and satellite portfolios. We create core fee-based portfolios with unconstrained weightings in sectors, market capitalizations and geographic location. We also create satellite portfolios using a variety of alternative investments that provide potential downside protection strategies.


Our Clients

We specialize in working with business owners, key executives and women investors. Our clients entrust us with a minimum of $1,000,000 in investable assets.

Whether we are working with business owners and key executives to maximize retirement plans and develop an exit strategy, or women investors on retirement and estate planning, our integrative approach helps give our clients a vision of the next chapter in life. If you would like to review your current financial situation, send us an email at or give us a call at 949.748.1177.
