Philosophy

     

    Warren founded Clearfront Advisory on the principles of transparency, simplicity, and independence. He and Zach believe in the power of freedom of choice and independent advice; these values are as important to them as they are to their clients. After years of managing clients’ assets at traditional Wall Street firms, Warren chose to align with Commonwealth Financial Network®, an independent broker/dealer, in order to provide clients with a wider breadth of options, from investments to financial planning and insurance. As an Accredited Investment Fiduciary®, Warren believes in putting his clients’ best interests above all.

    At Clearfront:

    • We know our clients: Investing is emotional. People have very different views on money and invest for varying goals. In order to align your investment strategy and goals, Warren and Zach get to know you, not just your portfolio. By understanding your unique needs, we can tailor your investment accordingly and connect them with regular goal tracking to help ensure that you’re on track for success.
    • We empower clients to feel confident about their decisions. We work with you in the way that suits you best, which allows you to be as hands-on or as hands-off as you’d like. We love to explain our investment process and provide details on your portfolio, but how much is up to you. Our goal is to be sure that you sleep well at night, secure in the knowledge that we’re working effectively for you.
    • We practice time-tested financial approaches. At Clearfront, we follow prudent financial principles and treat your portfolio responsibly. Warren’s experience in the wine industry — and Zach's as a humanitarian aid worker — gave them an outstanding background in financial markets because they understand the value of time.
    • We’re flexible. As an independent firm, we are able to move quickly and adjust your investments as the market moves and adjust our course when your financial picture changes.
    • We care for our clients in the way we’d want for ourselves. Warren and Zach chose to create a firm where they would want to be clients. Earning and keeping your trust is our primary focus: “I trust you” is the best compliment we can receive. Ensuring that you’re respected, informed, and heard is our goal.
    • We treat clients like people, not portfolio balances. One thing you’ll notice about our firm is that we’re different—friendly, down to earth, and good listeners. All our clients deserve our time and attention, and communication is the cornerstone of our relationship.
