The Path to Success

At Meyer Financial Advisors, our first step is to sit down with our client for a conversation. Our goal is to get a complete and clear picture of who you are and where you stand with your current family and financial situation. We discuss your family, short and long term financial goals as well as future plans for upcoming events. Are you planning and saving enough for retirement, saving for upcoming college expenses, wanting to purchase a second home or take early retirement? Where do you stand in relation to those goals and what is the best way to get there. We want to get a strong sense of your risk profile, both what you are able to tolerate as well as what you can tolerate related to your financial goals. A careful review of your entire current portfolio helps our team determine the feasibility of meeting your goals and gives us the information we need to structure your portfolio to meet those goals.


Single Projects Focused on a Specific Goal

In addition to long term financial advice, the firm also does project work on specific issues, including divorce, death and other unexpected financial issues and burdens. Projects can range from a few hours to a few months of advice and counsel.

Credit Assessment


Expert Guidance

We do not focus on active management of our clients' portfolios. Instead, we focus on the correct asset allocation to maximize your return and reduce your risk. Our focus is on selecting the right products and asset classes to meet your goals at the lowest possible expense to you. Diversification is our focus, both domestically as well as internationally. Our goal is not to pick the next big thing but ensure that you meet your objectives. 



A penny saved is a penny earned

Are you saving enough for retirement? Read the popular press and most of the latest research and it shows that most are not saving enough. We will review your current savings rates, dig into what you will actually need and make recommendations for changes you should make to ensure you have enough when the time comes for you to retire, be it part-time retirement or full time and even early retirement. We can help you decide what to do with your different 401(k) plans, insurance annuities and IRA accounts to help keep it simple and still meet your financial goals. We make it so work can become optional for our clients.

A Comprehensive Approach

Making major purchases or other financial decisions can be overwhelming. It isn't everyday you buy a house, a car, investment property or other large dollar asset. We help review the reasons for the purchase, options on how to pay for the asset and the best manner to handle it going forward. We even provide the services needed to ensure the transaction is done correctly and timely.


Please provide a brief description of the services you are interested in and we will get back to you to schedule a meeting or phone call.

Thanks for submitting! We will get back to you shortly.
