Christopher M Coyne, CFP®, CLU®

Wealth Management Advisor

My goal is to become your most trusted financial advisor.

I help busy, successful people gain clarity on their financial goals and then ensure that they achieve their most prosperous and meaningful financial future.

I will become an advocate for your vision and values, thus aligning your finances to ensure your vision becomes a reality. Together, we’ll take on the challenges and opportunities that present themselves each year.

Wealth management is about so much more than simply reviewing your portfolio. Your goals, your health, your values and vision determine what your long- term plan should look like.

My focus is on helping build, preserve and extend wealth for you and future generations to enjoy. Over time, my staff and I develop deep and personal relationships with my clients as we go through momentous life events by their side. I have shared pride with my clients as their children graduate college and get married and as they enjoy their grandchildren, and I have their hands through losses and tragedies as well.

These life events come with significant financial implications, but with proper planning, you can enjoy the wonderful times with peace of mind, knowing you are financially prepared.

As a Wealth Manager, my core values are candor, integrity and competency. I have a relentless commitment to excellence for myself and my staff, and thus, my clients have enjoyed the results we have achieved together.

Our Client Are:

Corporate Executives:

You are adept and successful at dealing with layers of complex matters. Your success has been rewarding, but you recognize that there are challenges to consider with respect to maintaining and growing your personal wealth. Through cash compensation, pensions and equity incentive options, you will continue to create significant wealth for you and your family. However, developing strategies to preserve and protect this wealth requires experience and expertise in this rapidly growing field. In our many years of working with some of the world’s largest firms and high-net worth individuals, we have developed this necessary expertise, and constantly seek to remain current in the latest financial planning solutions. We spend time analyzing these areas, so you don’t have to.

Business Owners:

You have exhausted much of your working life creating your successful business and enjoyed the significant wealth associated with it. My role is to help you maintain and grow this wealth for generations to come. While you may feel secure today, you may also feel uncertain about the future.  We help you minimize your future risks by addressing the important issues you will face going forward, such as: business continuing planning, estate planning, and legacy planning.


Living a meaningful and rewarding retirement requires considerable thought, vision and execution.  We spend years with clients prior to retirement, fine tuning the various risks and opportunities that exist.  After helping you visualize your ideal retirement, we will implement an income distribution plan, long-term care plan, an estate plan to ensure you will realize your dream vision.
