Independent Advice from Certified Financial Planners™

FocalPoint Wealth Management is a boutique private wealth management firm located in Scottsdale, AZ. FocalPoint was founded by two CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professionals with a clear mission in mind – to build a practice with trust, transparency, and objective independent advice at the core of everything we do. Since we don't offer proprietary investment products or engage in investment banking activities, we are not pressured by our affiliates to sell their products. With over 60 years of experience and an arsenal of industry resources, no situation is too complex for us to handle.

Most people think all Financial Advisors are “certified,” but this isn’t true. Anyone can use the title “Financial Planner.” But, only the professionals who have fulfilled the certification and continuing education requirements of the CFP® Board can display the CFP® certification trademarks. This represents a high level of ethics, professionalism, and competency. And because they are held to a fiduciary standard of care, a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional is required to act in your best interest.
