Ivybridge Wealth Advisors | Our Team

The name Ivybridge is based on two main ideas. Ivy from Greek and Latin representing fidelity and friendship – exactly the type of relationship we feel we build with our clients. And bridge, how we strive to help you to reach your financial goals and achieve a sense of financial well-being. As a team, we believe in hard work, endeavor for continuous improvement in all we do, and operate with a strong service-first mindset.

Our sole purpose is to help our clients make better financial decisions. We adhere to a financial planning process that strives for all advice given and financial decisions made to be well informed, made in context, and with minimal bias and emotion. In short, we bring a structured, thoughtful approach to financial decision-making. 

Being accessible and available to all our clients is a cornerstone of our practice. We’re always just a phone call or email away.
