We strive to build a strong financial plan and deep relationship with our Client’s that will lead to our Client’s achieving their financial goals. Investing simply put is about time and confidence, without time and confidence in a plan an Investor will usually not find success.

We provide a wide range of fee only services including hourly consulting, specific task planning, and active investment advising services; have confidence that these services will always be conducted in a Fiduciary manner.

Investor Acumen through investment knowledge.
During the height of the financial crisis in January of 2009 we saw a need to provide investors and our community with a forum and educational opportunity called Coffee Club.
Since February of 2009 it has been in session ever Second Tuesday without fail. During October of 2018 we decided to re-brand it as Investment Insight. At 10am at our Manchester office (Victorian House across from the Rec. Center) and at 6pm at our McMinnville office (Halfway between downtown and the CO-OP on S Chancery Street) we offer our Investment Insight.
What is Investment Insight? We believe the best way to explain it, is to invite you to like our Facebook page & watch some of our past Investment Insight meetings. www.facebook.com/mccaywealth
Don't hesitate to get in touch with us. We would love the opportunity to become your trusted advisor.
