Strategic Stewardship Team














The professionals of our firm work with affluent families, many who have accumulated more than they contemplate spending in their lifetimes. If you are in this situation, you know that you have a unique set of circumstances and choices. We work with you to understand your vision for your ideal future, your values and your goals. We establish where you are now and where you would like to be in the future. We then develop a written plan to help you move from success to significance in your business and in your life. In short, we help you make good decisions concerning money.

Strategic Stewardship is a member of PartnersFinancial, a national community of industry-leading, independent life insurance and financial professionals. For more than 25 years, the organization has supported its members as they build insurance industry knowledge and expertise. In the process, PartnersFinancial members created a powerful culture of idea-sharing and collaboration — all for the benefit of their clients. In addition, we offer securities through Kestra Investment Services, LLC and investment advisory services through Kestra Advisory Services, LLC.

At the individual client level, Strategic Stewardship works with carefully selected professionals, including attorneys*, accountants*, portfolio managers, business consultants, and advisors in a wide range of disciplines with one goal in mind: serving our clients with excellence.
