Why Curtis advisory?

We all could feel a lot better if the financial world wasn't so complex.

Unfortunately, monthly statements seem to be getting longer and less clear. Investment reporting is disjointed. It's difficult to know what you own. Big institutions are focused on numbers instead of people. Fees are hidden. Conflicts of interest are the norm.

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.

Life is constantly changing: goals, priorities, markets, the Economy, tax rules... without a framework to make good decisions, it can feel like reinventing the wheel every time something needs to be done. It's exhausting.

Our Process

First, we learn who you are to create a unique plan to help you succeed. 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 custom investment portfolios designed to efficiently manage your financial assets and achieve your goals. Our disciplined investment framework is easy to understand,  communicated in plain English. Custom investment models are based on our assessment of your own risk targets and goals, not a one-size fits all strategy. 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.


When you hire Curtis Advisory as your personal wealth management team, you can:

  • Feel confident you are on track to reach your goals
  • Have peace of mind that we are watching and have a plan of action when markets shift
  • Be assured of having someone to reach out to for advice or council at any time
  • Be informed on what your are invested in, why you own it, and how it is performing
  • Have comfort knowing you have a team of experienced, independent people that built a strategy personally for you and are not compensated by outside agendas
  • Have freedom to do the things you enjoy
