Your Time is Too Valuable to Spend Second-Guessing Your Financial Decisions

We know you understand your finances, but your time is limited. Financial complexities resulting from high income, stock options, and robust retirement offerings can be time-consuming and overwhelming, too. Don’t get bogged down over what to do or worried you’ll make a catastrophic mistake that impacts your present, future, and legacy. You can be excited by the financial opportunities that await you. At Northern Lights, we partner with you to simplify life’s complexities into sound financial decisions.

At Northern Lights, we work closely with tech executives and engineers in Washington, California, Virginia, and Texas.

Avoid costly financial mistakes.

Ditch the overwhelm caused by financial complexity. IRS penalties, stock options vs restricted stock units (RSU), under-diversification, underinsured, unbalanced tax liability… any and all of it can lead to long-term financial consequences.

Have clarity about where your financial decisions lead.

When you know where money flows in and out of your life and a plan that takes all the potential risks and opportunities into consideration, sound decisions become much easier and clearer.

Be comfortable with your financial choices.

It’s amazing how much better life feels when you know you’re not missing out on financial opportunities and decisions factor in your entire financial life.

We know money isn’t everything.

We know it’s what money can do that matters.

Our Services are Designed to Support You

We give you clarity over your financial life, a roadmap for how to attain specific outcomes, and the ongoing guidance and management to simplify your financial life.

Financial Planning

It begins with a deep dive to understand all the financial considerations that often come with living a full, adventure-filled life.

Whether you have stock-based compensation, a second home you have your eye on, children’s colleges to save for or aging parents needing estate planning, I focus on the end result of making your life easier and better.

Investment Management

At Northern Lights, implementation and ongoing management of an investment portfolio requires due diligence, manager monitoring, rebalance activities, as well as high quality performance reporting.

With a focus on long-term investment horizons, I develop comprehensive portfolios based on client goals, values and circumstances as well as tax efficiencies, costs of investments and other tax impacts on investments.
