Our Story

In April of 1998, Dean Buffington, Bruce Mohr, and Carey McNeal left their respective corporate officer positions in a regional private bank holding company to start an independent registered investment advisory firm focused on private wealth management. 

The firm is guided by a founding principle that successful people recognize they do not have the time, inclination, or expertise to manage their wealth alone.

Our mission is to provide a fiduciary financial advisory solution for successful, busy people who seek peace of mind in knowing their interests come first. While investment products and trends come and go, durable financial counsel stands the test of time.

Our employeed owned firm, now a team of a dozen professionals, manages over $900 million in assets for clients in multiple states.
