Our Service Commitment

We are committed to personal, platinum-level service each step of the way. At ProsperiFi, the client always comes first.

We don’t do cookie-cutter financial planning.  We believe the best financial strategy is one crafted around the client.  At ProsperiFi, meet with a personal financial advisor to create a financial strategy around your income and goals.  Build an ongoing relationship with your advisor with continuing goal assessment and strategy review.

Our collaborative approach helps identify the best strategies towards your desired outcomes.  Gain the clarity, efficiency, and effectiveness a personal financial advisor can offer.

At ProsperiFi, we emphasize:

Creating Trust. Financial planning is a process taking place over time.  Build a relationship with your advisor, pursue financial goals, and build trust in planning for the future.

Facilitating Success. We define our success by yours.  At ProsperiFi, your financial advisor is someone invested in your success.  Accompanying our clients on their financial journeys to success is what drives us.

Client Satisfaction. Our best review is client success.  Intelligent planning, decisive action, and ongoing review help our clients get the most.

Investment Philosophy

We view the financial services marketplace as a toolbox filled with tools for building tailored, personalized financial strategies.  We use our experience to select the best tools for pursuing your goals.

Our investment philosophy includes:

  • If the markets, facts, or other influences change, we are prepared to respond to them with appropriate changes to financial strategies.
  • We make decisions based on comprehensive financial planning,
  • Our strategies are crafted with extensive research, rather than trends or fads.
  • Our investment strategies are built for the long-term.
  • A diverse portfolio can help reduce risk and improve return.
  • Optimize strategies by reducing complexity, costs, and tax obligations wherever possible.
*There is no strategy, including diversification, guaranteed to assure success or protect against loss.
