You want to plan for your future, build and preserve wealth, and protect your legacy.

You are our focus. You know what you want in life. You've always tried to do what's right financially, and now want to continue to build wealth that lasts your lifetime. You don't want to make mistakes or be taken advantage of. You need clarity and confidence that you're on the right path, and that what you've set out to accomplish will happen. You're worried about paying too much in fees, and don't feel like you have a comprehensive financial plan. You're open to learning more about your investments and ready to partner with a financial planner that will bring you lasting peace of mind.


No one strategy fits everyone, which is why every client gets specialized attention--from planning, to execution, to follow-up. We take a proactive approach, and develop a strategy to address your financial goals using the most efficient methods possible. We are a fiduciary-based firm, which ensures we always place the interests of our clients ahead of our own.

Recognizing that everyone encounters challenges along the way, we strive to anticipate and address those situations before they occur. We want to keep you on track toward a meaningful and purpose-driven financial future. 

Empress Investment Group believes that education is a vital component to financially empowering our clients. Financial independence helps enrich our lives, which is why Empress Investment Group conducts ongoing educational workshops that all clients can attend free of charge.


No two individuals have the same exact financial make-up (assets, income, expenses, age, risk tolerance, etc.) which is why everyone deserves a plan customized for their needs. We aim to be the advisory firm that will help you to not only build your wealth, but also manage and protect it regardless of economic conditions. We are committed to building long-lasting and personal relationships with each client, and ultimately seek to take the guesswork out of the financial planning process for you.
