Planning Specialties

Ed Taylor is the founder and President of Taylor Financial. Mr. Taylor started in the personal financial planning industry in 1998. He has worked closely with clients through the dramatic booms and busts in the investment world.

Mr. Taylor achieved the designation of CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER (CFP®) in 2003.

Mr. Taylor holds both a BA (1986) and MA (1989) from North Carolina State University.  His broad community involvement includes such activities as coaching his children's soccer team, previously serving as the Treasurer on the Board of Directors of the Friends of Public Radio (WHQR) and participating in fund raising for Honor Flight.

Additional Information

Mr. Taylor is one of the few financial advisors in North Carolina permitted to offer Dimensional funds. This permission was granted through extensive scrutiny of Mr. Taylor's background, business model and investment philosophy. There is no obligation or compensation based on this relationship. Dimensional's approach to investing is based on the science of the markets not the noise in the markets.
