“Advice and investment design should be based on reason, not speculation.” It’s the critical idea that everything begins and ends with for WealthShape founder Timothy Baker CFP®. He spent over a decade developing a new client investment experience to specifically address the major problems facing today's financial services industry.

  1. Financial planning should be modern and more accessible.
  2. Portfolio management should be based on empirical evidence.
  3. Services should be responsibly delivered as a fiduciary.

Throughout his career he’s held positions as an advisor, consultant, portfolio manager, and vice president for institutional money management firms with billions of dollars in assets under management. These experiences led to a new way of thinking about personal finance based on a combination of three critical elements: digital age financial planning, low cost factor-based investment management and fiduciary advice delivered by CFP® professionals.

Tim’s appeared numerous times as a guest on SiriusXM Business Radio and frequently contributes to media outlets including Investopedia, The Wall Street Journal, Investment News, US News & World Report, Financial Advisor IQ and AdvisorHUB. He holds a MBA with a concentration in Finance and is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional. He guest lecturers on personal finance via electronic media and at various locations throughout the northeast U.S. including his home state of Connecticut.
