. . . IT'S ABOUT FAR MORE THAN MONEY . . .
Welcome to my website, Evolutionary-Wealth.net. The site's name is a take-off on the title of a book by futurists Alvin and Heidi Toffler, Revolutionary Wealth, first published in 2006.
I'm Tim Ferris.
Since 1982, I've participated in the evolution of personal financial planning--as an agent of insurance companies, as a registered representative of broker-dealers, as an independent insurance broker, and as an investment advisor representative of a larger investment advisor. In serving clients, I still deploy all these basic forms of doing business.
Every day, I cringe as see providers of financial services and advice attempting to capture market share by disparaging other providers, other approaches, and other products. From my perspective, all perspectives and all financial tools are relevant and necessary in the marketplace, so that all individuals might be served appropriately.
A professional advisor quite often has to go against common knowledge and groupthink. I find that I have to think differently, to question the status quo, to be truly professional in my approach to serving the best interests of the individual.
In everything I do, I put the individual first, and proceed from there.
