Evident Financial is a Registered Investment Advisor regulated by the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities. Our firm is an independent financial advisor, one of the fastest growing segments in financial services. Independence means we are not affiliated with any brokerage, insurance, or other financial institution.
As a Registered Investment Advisor, we are held to the highest standard of care in the financial services industry. As fiduciaries, we are required by law to act in the best interests of our clients at all times.
Located in Erie, PA, Evident Financial provides investment management and financial planning services to people transitioning into or already in retirement.
You need a trusted advisor with the experience and knowledge to guide you through the complex areas of your financial life.
What people want most from their financial advisor is to grow and protect their hard-earned money and organize their financial lives. We help clients reach these goals and consider all aspects of a comprehensive financial plan - from estate planning, income forecasting and tax planning to creating an investment plan matched to their unique situation.
At Evident Financial, we have extensive experience advising individuals, executives, and professionals about their investments and financial affairs.
Our team has earned the highest level of professional designations in the financial and accounting industries demonstrating superior skill and proficiency in investment management, accounting, risk management, and tax planning.
Clients benefit from a proven record of accomplishment, experience and success.
Unfortunately, many financial advisors bury their fee disclosure in the fine print. Layers of complexity, financial jargon and hidden fees make it difficult to understand true investment costs and the impact fees have on your investment returns.
Why pay more?
Evident Financial is different. We disclose all costs upfront so you can understand exactly what you’re paying in fees.
When you open an account at Evident Financial, your assets are held in custody at Charles Schwab, one of the world’s leading investment firms. Your personal information and money are safeguarded under Schwab’s Security Guarantee, the highest level of data protection in the financial industry.
The Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities provides oversight of Evident Financial and is charged with protecting your assets. As required by our regulators, Evident Financial's financial results and internal controls are subject to periodic examinations.
The initial planning meeting with you goes far beyond simply giving you a questionnaire and then plugging you into a product. You can expect an engaging process so that we can create a custom investment plan based on your goals and dreams.
Why you should get a second opinion review of your current investments:
There is great risk in being in the wrong investments and not protecting your assets when a down market comes.
The cost difference between low-fee and high-fee financial advice is staggering.
Investment management is only one aspect of your financial life. If you're not receiving comprehensive financial planning services, you're paying too much for too little.
