Guardian Rock Wealth approaches the individual, from a point of relationship and common understanding.  

  • In a world of automation and mass production, Guardian Rock seeks to customize.                                                      
    • We listen first to gain an understanding.
    • We seek to find clarity not just about what you want to accomplish but more importantly, the values behind your wishes.  
       
  • In a world overwhelmed by noise and distraction, Guardian Rock seeks to focus and to simplify.                                                                                  
    • We mitigate financial jargon.
    • We look to answer current questions and those you possibly never knew you had.  
       
  • In a world lost to opinion and commentary, Guardian Rock attempts to deliver definition and specific outcomes.             
    • We understand that no matter what opinions there are in the current market, you have specific objectives to accomplish.  We customize solutions to work towards accomplishing those specific objectives.

Guardian Rock seeks intention and purpose through relationship and results.

The team’s experiences and skillsets built over decades, are both technical and dynamic, covering the scope of investment management and financial planning. The team’s expertise includes knowledge and understanding of the fixed income and equity markets as well as the prudent use of alternative investments.  Tax and estate planning are always part of our discussions. 

A careful analysis of many packaged products reveals significant added fees and other charges that are often without merit.  Having spent decades in large Wall Street firms we are able to eliminate or mitigate many of these excess costs, in turn adding value to the client relationship. The team has extensive experience with products like Mutual Funds, Unit Trusts, Structured Products, Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs).  We have designed and managed more than $150 billion in assets throughout our careers.  Working directly on these types of investments through many different market cycles has given us unique insight into what costs are prudent versus those that are not.
