“The key is in having a destination,

a flight plan, and a compass”





Cardinal Compass is a boutique-style financial management firm focused on client service and comprehensive, personalized planning. Our most important job is truly understanding who our clients are and what they want to accomplish. We help create, nurture, and protect wealth in the most effective manner possible.

By ensuring that clients’ assets are aligned with their goals and organized according to their highest priorities, we can build plans that are tailored to their lives. Putting the strategies and processes in place to help clients pursue financial success allows them to focus on the things that matter most to them – their passions, businesses, and families.

We provide the research, resources, and expertise to create customized strategies, and collaborate with skilled professionals in a wide array of specialties to find distinct solutions. We help clients see the impact of the financial decisions they make on their long-term objectives, and make adjustments as needs and priorities change.

At Cardinal Compass, we are committed to providing clear, objective guidance to help clients navigate through the complexities of life and stay on track toward their visions. We provide the compass, giving clear direction to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world. Financial success is not a destination, it’s a journey.
