ABOUT

When my wife and I were expecting our first child a few years ago, many of our initial conversations revolved around personal finance. Can we make student loans payments and save for college? How should we fit child care into our budget? And at what point might we want to buy a new house?

Fortunately, I had a background in finance, so we had a head start on some of these questions. But even so, we still put a lot of effort into researching different acronyms, tax strategies, and companies. I figured that my life was about to get more hectic, and I was concerned that tasks likes these would cut into the limited time I had for date night and playgrounds.

I often thought, if I had this experience -- even with an MBA in finance -- how much more stressed must other people my age feel? I realized that I had the ability to offer our generation an alternative: a financial planning company that’s actually designed for us. Welcome to the Illumint community.

OUR LIFE CHANGES CALL FOR A MORE ENGAGED ADVISOR

TYPICAL CLIENTS

We've worked with couples on managing their student debt, including through refinancing. We've then evaluated what they might want to save for retirement and how much they can spend on a new house.

NEW COUPLES

We've helped parents with a new baby determine the best way to begin saving for college. We've identified good options for paying for home improvement projects and getting tax breaks on child care.

YOU’RE CAPABLE OF FIGURING OUT THIS STUFF

BUT IS THAT REALLY HOW YOU WANT TO SPEND YOUR TIME?

HOW WE'RE DIFFERENT
CFP® PRO
You shouldn't settle for anything less than the most rigorous credential in the industry.
NO MINIMUMS
We’ve eliminated any incentive for us to work only with the wealthy. We welcome all income levels and investment portfolio sizes.
FLAT FEES ONLY
We don’t sell any products and we don’t accept commissions from other companies. You only pay a flat rate, and you always know the amount in advance.
OUR DIFFERENCES EMPOWER YOU TO USE YOUR TIME DIFFERENTLY

You don't need to commute to a lifeless office park anymore. You don't even need to live in the same city as us. Instead, we'll rely on video chat and just meet in person when feasible.
CANDID
We base our recommendations on the most time-tested research, so we'll be honest with you when you ask what we think.
CUSTOMIZED
We tailor every aspect of our business model to address the needs that young people with new or growing families (including us!) face.
