Why we are different
McClellan Wealth Management is designed to provide its clients the professional service they want and need. A firm that is dedicated to give personal attention to each client and build lasting relationships. A firm with the knowledge and advanced technical support required to enable the client’s interest to be the highest priority. A firm, whereby, it’s compensation is secondary to the success of the client, unlike the traditional Wall Street model.
Integrity, competence, and diligence. These three words make up the foundation of McClellan Wealth Management.
We put our client’s interests first by acting as a fiduciary. Unlike many other firms that put the interests of its advisers or shareholders first, we at McClellan shun these conflicts of interest, and feel it is our duty to educate clients as to why this is so important. Simply put, we are completely independent and objective in dealing with our clients.
Another way that McClellan Wealth Management is different is that we are always seeking more knowledge to better serve our clients. We only focus on the most credible educational sources, and will only employ professionals with either a CFP™, CFA or CPA as we believe these designations to be a base level of competency for the services we provide our clients.
“Leave no stone unturned” is a common saying at McClellan Wealth Management. Our wealth management process and investment strategies are designed so that every need that our clients may have will be addressed. We will tirelessly research any topics that arise until we find the answer.
