About SFG

Strauss Financial Group, Inc. opened its doors in 1988 as an independent, boutique financial advisory firm with one objective-to work for only one boss-you, our client. Creating and Preserving Wealth for Generations is our mission, and we do this by offering objective and personalized financial advice, open communication, and unsurpassed service.

As a fee-based Registered Investment Advisor, Strauss Financial Group operates under a fiduciary standard, which means that all advisors must exhibit the highest form of trust, honesty, and integrity.


With vast experience and a relationship-driven philosophy, SFG has helped clients to reach their financial goals and achieve peace of mind, acting as their resource and guide through life’s journey. Though we wear many hats — including teacher, coach, confidante, economist, and advocate — our main objective is to simplify complex financial decisions, communicate in plain English, listen to your needs, and provide focus, understanding, and solutions.
