Selecting a financial adviser is an important decision.

We believe the independent, fee-only advisory model and a client-first approach reduces the potential for conflicts of interest.

Or simply: our clients interests are our primary interests.
Nvest Wealth Strategies is an independent registered investment advisory firm that follows the strict fiduciary standard - working in the long-term best interest of each client. Nvest believes this is THE only way to interact with clients. We view each client's savings as a culmination of their "life-effort, compressed.” In contrast to many other “financial advisors”, Nvest Wealth Strategies does not derive any portion of its compensation from commissions.

Independent advisors generally do not sell expensive products or illiquid annuities. A core philosophy of our firm is that no investment should control its owner; rather, investors should control their own investment destiny. Nvest is compensated based upon the growth of client portfolios over time via an asset-based fee - we believe this structure reduces conflicts of interest. Our efforts are totally focused on you - that means objectivity.

We believe that trust must be earned.

We are focused, personalized, and "eat our own cooking". That means we manage our own personal assets using the same strategies we advocate and employ on behalf of our clients.
