Stacey Hyde, CPA, CFA®, CFP®
My promise to our clients is to:
- First, strive to understand them. Who are they? Where have they been? What's brought them to us? and What do they hope to gain from a relationship with us?
- Secondly, analyze the entire situation - not just the money, but also the relationships that are important to them, the values that they use to guide their decision-making and the worries that keep them up at night.
- Lastly, provide advice and guidance that can help them worry less, enjoy more and reduce taxes wherever possible. A well thought out financial plan can provide a guide for decision making that breaks big decisions down into a series a more manageable small decisions.

**The 2020 ranking of the Forbes' Best-in-State Wealth Advisors list was developed by SHOOK Research and is based on in-person and telephone due-diligence meetings to evaluate each advisor qualitatively and on a ranking algorithm that includes client retention, industry experience, review of compliance records, firm nominations, and quantitative criteria (including assets under management and revenue generated for their firms). Overall, 32,000 advisors were considered, and 4,000 (12.5) percent of candidates) were recognized. This recognition and the due-diligence process conducted are not indicative of the advisor's future performance. Your experience may vary. Winners are organized and ranked by state. Some states may have more advisors than others. You are encouraged to conduct your own research to determine if the advisor is right for you. Portfolio performance is not a criterion due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. SHOOK does not receive a fee in exchange for rankings.
