Since 1978, CJM Wealth Advisers, Ltd. has been a stable and trusted partner for clients to turn to when it comes to all things financial. Every member of CJM Wealth Advisers, Ltd. believes that we have a fiduciary responsibility to our clients. Simply put, this means we put the client's needs above our own needs, always.
CJM Wealth Advisers, Ltd. is a locally owned company. We are not a subsidiary of a larger financial institution, such as a bank or an insurance company. Because we are an independent company, we have the ability to do whatever is in the client's best interest, without any large corporate mandate or interference. We believe this makes us uniquely suited to assist our clients over the course of their lifetime(s). From our deep value approach to managing client assets to working with clients and their attorney to draft estate documents, we believe in being side by side with our clients, every step of the way.
At CJM Wealth Advisers, we believe that competent and ethical financial planning begins with the highest standard possible, the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation. All of the owners as well as a large number of our team at CJM Wealth Advisers are CFP® professionals.
CJM Wealth Advisers, Ltd. has additional expertise on staff with a Certified Public Accountant as well as a Chartered Financial Analyst in house to assist the other members of the CJM Planning Team with specific client needs.
