For Clients

Doug Marlow, AIF®, CFP®,ChFC®,CLU®

Director of Financial Planning

I firmly believe that our role as planners is to help our clients live THEIR best lives. It means aligning THEIR mission, values and family dynamics with THEIR financial plans. Father, mentor, relationship builder

Doug began his financial services career 30 years ago with his families’ investment advisory firm and has spent most of his career coaching clients on behavioral investing while developing consultants and advisors to deliver world-class client experiences.

Doug’s mission for the past 30-plus years has been and continues to be utilizing the principles of behavioral finance to help people implement the right financial strategies for their money, wealth, and estate planning. This includes Retirement Planning, Financial Planning, Asset Protection, Estate Planning, Tax Planning, Document Preparation and Ongoing Portfolio Management.

Doug has attained numerous industry achievements in his pursuit of serving clients at the highest level.  He carries the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner, Accredited Investment Fiduciary®, Chartered Financial Consultant®, and Chartered Life Underwriter designations as further commitment to the highest ethical and planning standards of the industry.

Doug's Money Story

As the son of a Wall Street Technical Analyst, I grew up in a house of relatively high financial literacy.  I remember at 10 years old learning the lessons of embargos, gasoline rationing, high interest rates, and stagflation.  I had no friends, but I knew what was going on in the economy.  Those formative years taught me a lot about the value of working hard, education, saving, investing, and planning so that a family could keep up with a lifetime of rising costs.

I have used those early lessons to ignite my passion for planning and firmly believe that all successful investing is goal-focused and planning-driven, while all failed investing is market-focused and current-outlook-driven.  Successful investors act continuously on their plan and failed investors react continually to the markets – almost always the wrong way.  It is truly impossible to react one’s way to investment success.
