A Unique Approach to Wealth Management & Financial Planning

Arbor Wealth Management is a fiduciary investment advisory firm located in Miramar Beach, FL. We work with individuals, families and businesses to holistically plan for each client's unique goals and objectives.

As a fee-only investment advisory firm, we employ a transparent, flat-fee schedule for all of our wealth management and financial planning services. We don't sell financial products like annuities or mutual funds which may cause conflicts of interest. We don't accept commissions of any kind from any source, nor we ever charge our clients hidden fees. As a client, you can rest assured that every investment in your portfolio is meant to benefit you and was chosen only for that reason, not because we will receive compensation from choosing it.

As a fiduciary investment advisory firm, we always place our client's best interests before our own and disclose any possible conflict of interest to you. You can plan with confidence when your financial advisor works relentlessly for you and not a brokerage firm.
