Our name is a reference to the Swiss Stone Pine tree.

The idea for our name came from a trip to Switzerland. Andrew, one of our Founding Members, and his wife, stayed in a bed and breakfast in the Alps region and were struck by the pine aroma of the building.

When they asked about it, they learned that the building was made out of Swiss Stone Pine. That discovery led them to do research on this unique pine tree.

They found out that the positive characteristics of the Swiss Stone Pine tree have been valued and used for centuries. Scientific studies have shown that exposure to a Stone Pine can improve your sleep by saving you up to 3,500 heart beats per night making your nights more restful and restorative.

So why did we choose this for name? We know that the transition to retirement can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. Our goal is to create a path for you toward a successful and fulfilling retirement – one that lets you sleep well at night without the worry.

Committed to Innovation

Because our clients’ best interest is at the core of everything we do, we are always looking for ways to better serve your financial needs. We review best practices for technology, process, and communication on a regular basis to find and implement improvements to our offerings.

For example, we’ve developed an innovative, one-page financial plan that we create for each client based on our own analysis and not an automated computer analysis. It’s a customized plan unique to each client that provides an easy-to-understand overview of your situation. We also employ state-of-the-art portfolio monitoring software to manage your investments behind the scenes.

These innovations help us streamline how we do our work, so that we can focus more on what our clients need.
