Efficient Wealth Management is your guide into the confusing world of personal finance.  We help you avoid the pitfalls and help you embrace the advantages of a well developed but complex financial system.  We act as your confidant, advocate and protector.  We will earn your trust by telling you the truth at all times.  Even those truths you would sometimes not like to hear.  Our focus is our clients, not their money. We think it is essential to understand your net worth, your financial needs and relationship with your savings before embarking on any investment plan.  We are uncompromising in our belief that a good overall Financial Plan is essential to success.

At Efficient Wealth Management, we have separated ourselves from the sale of products and instead, returned the focus to servicing the needs and requirements of the client.  Being a fee-only advisory service, we are paid only for our services and our fees are fully transparent. Our advice is completely independent, objective and unbiased. We respect the need to provide fair value.   We become your partner in managing your wealth.  Through our relationships with select investment advisors, we will also help you take control of your management costs.

When you work with Efficient Wealth Management, you will benefit from the insight of an experienced, dedicated financial planner. Your planner will walk you through the entire planning process – from discussing your concerns, to developing a set of recommendations tailored just for you, to helping you put those recommendations in place. Your fees for our services often include a subscription for ongoing financial planning services, so we will be there when we are needed.  We think you should be in control of the relationship and let you select the level of involvement you desire from your financial professionals. You pay for what you get and do not pay for what you do not want.  You can go it alone, benefit from our educational sessions, get some minimal guidance or rely on us to monitor your portfolio. You can engage us to provide a complete set of financial plans or just one.
