I’m Michael Evans, Founder, and CEO of Cogent Strategic Wealth. In my past career, I was a successful trader. In that career, I was fortunate enough to be in an industry where I was able to generate wealth. In fact, most of the people I worked with had opportunities to accumulate wealth. Unfortunately, many of the members of that community were not very good at preserving that wealth. This was a huge problem. 

People work hard to accumulate their wealth, and I wanted to help these high-achieving professionals figure out how to preserve their wealth with better investing-processes. I was able to do this for my family, and I wanted to share this knowledge and help other people. 

Cogent Strategic Wealth was formed so that you could have a “go-to” resource to help you with your financial planning and investment strategies. Cogent serves as a fiduciary advisor in your life, by which you can tell them your most important goals and aspirations, even your fears. We developed the Cogent Course of Action, a process we walk through with our clients that ascertains what is essential and what the best way to structure their financial life is to accomplish their goals.

According to a Gallup article by Jim Norman, more than half of American investors (55%), use a personal financial advisor. Investors that use a personal financial advisor are more likely to have confidence in their investment plans and in their own knowledge of stock investing than those who handle their own finances. 

The Cogent Course of Action: the path to reach your financial goals.
