Invest with Confidence
As a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA), Lutz Financial has a fiduciary duty to act in your best interest. This responsibility constitutes our foundational purpose, guiding everything that we do. Our team focuses on your priorities, not just your portfolio. We share your values, put your interests first, offer objective advice, and explain things in terms you can understand. As your trusted financial partner, we will provide an approach to investing that is evidence based, rewarding, and tailored to your needs.
Our advisors share the core belief that financial markets are efficient, meaning prices reflect the knowledge and expectations of all investors. As a result, it is unlikely that any individual can obtain the superior information required to consistently outperform via stock picking or market timing. We believe investment returns are determined principally by asset allocation, which leads us to a process that differs from many other investment advisors that attempt to outsmart the market.
At Lutz Financial, we create investment solutions to fit your unique characteristics and needs. Our approach is disciplined by design and seeks to maximize diversification and tax efficiency while minimizing costs. We build portfolios using traditional mutual funds and exchange-traded funds. Ongoing research and analysis are conducted to ensure we balance the tradeoff between risk and return. Let us show you what can happen when knowledge is coupled with an experienced, credentialed team of financial professionals.
