Our Name

Historically, a waystone is known for being a grounded marker on the road that communicates both direction and safety. Coming across a waystone on your journey means that you are on the right path and have clarity on which direction to go next.

We view a waystone as a pillar of direction and see it as a metaphor to guide our clients along the path to potentially obtaining financial independence. With our wide network of carefully cultivated professionals and resources, you have access to an unparalleled combination of both traditional and cutting-edge financial planning. Our intent is to be accessible to anyone who needs financial advice but sophisticated enough to handle the most complex challenges.

Wealth Design is a combination of money, resources, and relationships. We provide you with the tools and framework to help align strategic wealth building strategies with your most important goals.
