Making a Difference

Ed Guernsey
Managing Partner

With over 45 years of experience in the financial services industry, Ed specializes in helping his clients reach their financial objectives. Great attention is given to the accumulation, distribution, conservation, and protection of assets and ultimately passing on of wealth and family values to future generations. To Ed, Legacy Planning encompasses more than just dumping and dividing family wealth on the children. It also means passing down values, accountability, and responsibility, while making sure that the family’s intent is known and understood.

An additional focus of Ed’s practice is teaching his clients the value of including charitable giving as a major part of their family estate plan, allowing his clients to create a legacy and placing much needed resources in the hands of competent charities. He also continues to work with clients in developing, verifying and implementing financial strategies to maximize income and estate growth, while managing risk.

As a member of an elite study group, Ed is constantly participating in regularly shared information regarding products, planning strategies, services, tax law, and investment management. This group has representation from Atlanta, New York, Charlotte, Boston, New Hampshire, Chicago, Washington DC, and San Jose.

The Power of a Dream

Clint Guernsey

In 1958, Clinton Charles Guernsey (b.1920 – d.2009) had a simple dream to work in an environment where he could wear a suit and tie, instead of digging around in the filthy dregs of sewer pipes and muddy ditches. Since that time, his dream has transformed this company into what it is today - a thriving financial firm spanning over 60 years and four generations.

"When all is said and done, in the end, there are only two things that matter: your faith and your last name." - Clint Guernsey


Clint served honorably in the Army’s 156th Infantry Regiment during World War II. His commitment to our country reflected in his commitment to responsible financial work in his community. That commitment of hard, honest work remains, to this day, a consistent foundation of the firm.
