What does it mean to be a SmartVestor Pro?

To be designated as a SmartVestor Pro, an Advisor must already possess and maintain a defined code of conduct as well as agree philosophically with the financial planning principles espoused by Dave Ramsey and his Ramsey Solutions program.  Principles include, but are not limited to:

  • Investor Education
  • Eliminating Debt
  • Maintaining Emergency Funds
  • Not using Insurance as an Investment Vehicle
  • Not using Proprietary Investment Products

I agree to the SmartVestor Code of Conduct.

I believe everyone deserves access to solid, professional investing guidance. I have earned my position as a SmartVestor Pro because of my experience in the industry and my drive to help others.

I provide a refreshing twist on financial planning.

I have the heart of a teacher, not the attitude of a salesman. I’m someone you can feel comfortable talking to and someone you can trust. We’ll work together to create a plan to help you reach your goals.

I care about your future.

I’m more than a “financial planner”—I’m someone you can relate to and share your dreams with. I fit your investments to your life, help you understand what you’re investing in and why, and encourage you to stick with your long-term goals.
