Planning Specialties

Paradigm Financial Advisors ("PFA") provides Comprehensive Wealth Management services that go beyond the services offered by most other financial advisory firms.  

Here is what makes PFA different:

We are a FEE ONLY Registered Investment Advisory Firm and we serve our clients in a Fiduciary capacity.  We have taken an oath to act in the best interest of our clients at all times.  We do not accept any commissions and we do not sell any insurance, annuities or proprietary products.  The large Wall Street brokerage firms have spent an enormous amount of money lobbying Congress to try to stop them from passing a new "Fiduciary Standard" for all financial firms because it would prevent them from getting paid huge commissions on insurance, annuities and from selling the expensive "proprietary" products they sell to their clients. The large brokerage firms have also come up with creative ways to try to confuse clients by calling their brokers "fee based financial advisors" but then they put a disclaimer in their client agreement that says "they do not provide any advice".

PFA became one of the first Fee Only Registered Investment Advisory firms in St. Louis many years ago because we are committed to serving our clients in a fiduciary capacity and giving advice that is in our client's best interest at all times. 

Additional Information

PFA takes great pride in the fact that nearly all of our clients have been refferred to PFA from our clients. 

We are also very proud of the fact that a large number of our clients have worked with us for over 20 years and we have helped many of them with multigenerational planning to grow and protect their wealth for their children and grandchildren.
