Tailored Financial Planning


At Cogent Strategic Wealth, we believe that you deserve a plan that is customized to your specific goals, values, and needs. We don’t do cookie-cutter approaches here. Success is defined differently by each person, so why shouldn’t your financial plan be customized as well?

Our team of financial advisors start by listening to you and what you are wanting to accomplish. Next, we look for the right plans and strategies that will help you accomplish your goals.

Together, we can help you reach your financial goals.

Evidence-Based Investment Management


Your financial future is too important to be left to chance. By utilizing an Evidence-Based Investment approach, the team at Cogent Strategic Wealth is about implementing the great ideas in finance for our clients, not speculation. 

Reacting to the market, trying to “game” the system, or “beat” the market might work for some, but is not the right approach for most.

Cogent Strategic Wealth believes in participating in the market to earn expected long-term returns, according to time-tested academic evidence, personal goals and individual risk tolerances.

The Cogent Difference


Independent Fiduciary

This means that we are on your side and being an independent advisor, we can make decisions that work for you, not mandated by a large corporation. We take our fiduciary duty seriously.

Proactive Approach

Your financial future is too important to merely react to unexpected events in your life. We look ahead and take proactive steps to help you be prepared for anything.

6-Month Money Back Guarantee

After 6 months, if you are not satisfied with the progress we have made together, we’ll refund our management fees.
