With combined advisory experience in excess of 40 years, the perspective we bring to our client relationships is based on our collective body of knowledge and capabilities. Both continue to evolve each day allowing us to add new tools and distinct opportunities which can potentially enrich the lives of those we serve.

Life is unpredictable, and just as the world continues to evolve and change, so do the needs of the businesses and families we are honored to serve. We pull from our experience, but we don’t rely on it as the way forward. In fact, the days we relish most are the ones that deliver a little known challenge that we are able to tackle and solve on behalf of our client and their family.

Dan Whittenburg, our Founder and key partner in the firm is regularly called upon to share his expertise within the financial services industry with his peers, and publically in the community he is proud to serve. He conveys his unique perspective through various mediums including articles, white papers and comprehensive presentations. You can find a sampling of Dan’s personal perspective below.

We regularly update and add to our perspective, so please check back often.
