Fiduciary Advisors

We are fiduciaries. As fiduciaries we are legally bound to place your interests ahead of ours at all times. We only recommend planning and investment strategies that are in your best interest.

Wealth Management for Medical Device and Pharmaceutical Sales Professionals 

We understand how spending time on areas outside your sales work often gets neglected, including wealth management. Consider these questions:

Are you focused on hitting sales goals at the expense of your own finances?

Do you struggle with your variable compensation, benefits & stock options?

Do you wish your financial life was simpler, your taxes lower, and that your investments and 401(k) work just as hard as you do?

If you answered “yes” to any of these, we can help. We will get you organized, educated and inspired to become financially independent.

Founder & President

So, who is David Dedman and how can he help me?

I learned early in life how money, or the lack thereof, affects everyone. It has also made me aware that the advice I give to clients each and every day has a huge impact on their futures. Below are a few experiences that have led me to become a financial advisor helping my clients reduce taxes, invest smarter and plan for the future. 

When I was in high school my Dad was laid off from his job. So he decided to take a job as a long distance truck driver. The money was not great, and I watched my mom struggle to pay the bills and provide necessities for me and my younger brother. My mom was under extreme pressure, she had no one to turn to for advice. I watched my mom agonize as the bills piled up, and we worried about losing our home. Eventually she had to accept a loan from a coworker. It was a humiliating event for her.

My second money lesson was when my grandfather passed away. My grandfather lived alone for a few years, after the passing of my grandmother, until he was diagnosed with dementia. After spending all of his money on nursing home care, he had less than a thousand dollars the day he died. He didn't even have a small life insurance policy to bury him. I was devastated when my mother told me this. 

Wow, money does have an impact!

I learned a lot about money while I was young. Some of these lessons were pretty painful to go through. These experiences also led me to a fascination with money and how to grow it and protect it. So in 1993 I became a financial advisor! I love this business and giving advice to help people avoid some of the mistakes I've experienced. No one needs to go through the kind of stress my mom had to endure.

In case you're wondering...

Wealth Vest

If Wealth Builder or Wealth Management are not a good fit, but we both agree working together makes sense, we offer an investment-only relationship. But this differs from a traditional "do it yourself " relationship.

Portfolio management is the same as Wealth Builder, but there is no planning relationship.

We want you to succeed and still help, with the goal of seeing you join us with Wealth Builder or Wealth Management in the future. We will provide a weekly newsletter, one meeting per year and ongoing consultation through the year via phone, video conference or email.

Fee Schedule:  0.50% Assets Under Management
