Jay Grandfield

CEO / Senior Investment Partner

Nothing is more gratifying than seeing my clients achieve a confident retirement. We build discussions around what is most important to you and what you want to achieve. Sometimes it may be a realistic picture of where you are in relation to where you want to go and other times it’s purely wealth management. Our approach adapts to your financial picture and your ever-changing needs.
