Chris Taylor, BFA™ joined SolomonWood as an Advisor in 2011 after several years in the financial services industry. In addition to having his BFA™ designation—designed to train, develop, and improve the moral and emotional competencies necessary to help clients make better decisions throughout the financial planning process, he has served as one of Dave Ramsey’s Endorsed Local Providers (ELP) (currently SmartVestor Pro).
Chris provides ongoing comprehensive financial planning advice to help clients from a variety of backgrounds pursue retirement, investment, educational, business and estate planning goals. Chris’s approach to working with clients revolves around the idea that good advisors serve as teachers to their clients and collaborate with the other advisors in a client’s life—including but not limited to their accountants and attorneys. His goal in working with clients is to provide them the direction and advice they need to be financially independent and work towards their goals.
