Planning Specialties

Barnett Financial is a boutique wealth advisory firm that provides family financial planning and investment management services. Barnett Financial's clients receive benefits that go well beyond family finance; they gain the peace of mind that comes from working with an experienced financial advisor that they know is working diligently on their behalf. Our approach is based on unbiased academic research and sensible planning strategies, not Wall Street hype.

We offer a complimentary hour-long initial consultation to get to know each other and to determine whether there is the possibility of a good working relationship. We strive to provide an exceptional level of service to a limited number of clients and so we look for individuals with whom we can have the most fruitful and long-lasting relationships.
