Cliff Downie with Dave Ramsey and Chris Hogan


We are committed to educating and empowering you to help you achieve your investing goals.

Client First Mentality

We don’t just offer a single company’s investment choices; we can shop around to help you reach your goals.

Long Term Focus

We believe that eliminating debt and investing for the long term is the ideal way to build wealth and prepare for retirement.
Dave Ramsey
Dave Ramsey is a personal money management expert, an extremely popular national radio personality and best-selling author of The Total Money Makeover.

For example, helping with retirement planning, investments and college saving. It is my goal, through education and communication, to be my clients trusted advisor. I am honored to be the trusted financial advisor to my clients and their families. I also work with other professionals in helping my clients with estate planning, taxes and insurance.
