Our Impact

People are at the heart of everything we do. That means people who work with us, people in our communities, and people across the financial planning profession. And since helping people is in our company’s DNA, we continuously look for ways to invest in all of them.

Advancing Our Communities

Organizations We Support

We partner with nonprofit, educational, and civic organizations in our community, primarily focusing on assistance for basic human needs, advancing financial literacy, combating intergenerational poverty, and supporting the next generation of financial planners.

Advancing THE FINANCIAL PLANNING PROFESSION

Education, Research, and Innovation

We are committed to moving our profession forward. Our advisors conduct research, author books, serve professional organizations, teach collegiate courses, present at national conferences, and more. Financial planning is our passion, and by investing in it, we’re investing in our clients, too.

Publications

We’re not your typical financial advisors. Our team has contributed to more 200 financial planning publications. We believe in supporting the science of investing, evidence-based financial planning, and the development of financial planning as a true helping profession. Some of the journals where we regularly publish include:
