About Blue Financial

We work for our CLIENTS not a company. Blue Financial is built upon developing a stable, independent retirement for you. It's not just our job--it's our passion.

Putting clients first and setting ourselves apart from industry norms is our number one priority. We take a look at one aspect most advisors rarely do: taxes. At Blue, we take a distinctly unique approach to investment management and financial planning centered on strategies for creating potentially tax-free investments and efficient distribution of income in retirement. This specialized focus puts us in the position to work with and advise individuals, even those who already have an advisor without affecting their current relationship. If a majority of your money is in retirement plans like 401(k)s or IRAs then your income at retirement is taxable. Our attention to critical tax strategies helps our clients prepare to have tax free assets at retirement thus further protecting their life's work and savings. Our methods are focused on achieving your goals because that's the only benchmark that matters!
