Why Curtis advisory?

The financial world is complex.

Monthly statements are getting longer. It's difficult to know what you own with accounts in different places. Big institutions are focused on numbers. Fees are hidden.

Holistic Wealth Management

Independently Owned




Joshua D. Hayes, CFP®

We take a custom approach to wealth management where our clients come first. We don't have a one-size-fits-all solution, and we can collaborate with any of your other outside professionals (CPAs, Estate Attorneys, etc.) to bring everyone on the same page to better your situation.

Being independent allows us to make decisions for our clients without any outside sales pressure or influence.

We take on the role of a fiduciary. This means we have a legal responsibility to provide advice that puts your interests before our own.

Our fees are transparent so you know exactly how and when we get paid. We don't charge commissions for advisory services or get paid for recommending specific or proprietary investments.

Joshua D. Hayes, CFP®

We believe everyone deserves to have competent advice and a clear plan to help them achieve their goals.

Our Process

First, we learn about you: Your values, your goals, your priorities. We identify your most urgent needs and clarify your short and long term goals. By knowing where you are and where you are trying to go, we can help create clear steps to get there.


Next, we build a custom investment portfolio designed to efficiently manage your investments to achieve your goals. Our disciplined investment framework is easy to understand,  communicated in plain English. Investment strategies are based on our assessment of your own risk targets and goals, not a one-size fits all. We measure progress and regularly report back so you stay informed.


Finally, we pay attention to your portfolio, monitor the investments, and make changes when necessary.
