Do you have confidence in your financial plan?
It never hurts to get a second opinion.

We can work with you to develop a financial plan and evaluate your investment portfolio to see if you’re on the right track to achieve your goals. If you’re not, we’ll make recommendations to help you get there. Even if your investment portfolio appears sound, a second opinion can help increase your confidence. In fact, you may find that it puts you in a much better financial position.

At Wiser Wealth Management, we start with comprehensive financial planning, unlike most financial advisory firms who solely focus on your investments. We look at your overall financial picture, including tax planning, estate planning, retirement, and insurance. Our financial advisors are fiduciaries, meaning they are legally obligated to act in your best interests. Since we are a fee-only firm and do not receive commissions or referral fees, we can evaluate your financial situation from an unbiased perspective.

Is your investment strategy built for success?

Making financial decisions can be stressful. Knowing that you’ve taken the time to get an unbiased second opinion can provide peace of mind because you have a plan in place to reach your goals.

Gain Confidence in Your Future

Our advisors will create a financial plan and evaluate your investment portfolio. We can suggest strategies that align with your long-term goals and objectives so that you can have confidence in your future.

Get Unbiased Advice

At Wiser, we are fiduciary financial advisors, which means we are legally responsible to act in your best interest at all times. That’s a responsibility we take very seriously.

Identify Opportunities

If your existing plan doesn’t have you on track to reach your investment objectives, we will make recommendations and identify where adjustments are needed.

Address Complex Situations

If your financial situation is complex, involving multiple income streams, investments, tax implications, estate planning, and more, a second opinion can ensure that all aspects are adequately addressed.

Meet the team who will help make sure your portfolio is on track to meet your financial goals.

I first met Casey Smith in 2005 when with his help I created my Estate Plan. He appeared to be a bright and personable young man and his advice fit my hopes for my financial future. I decided to have him manage my portfolio.I have not been disappointed. I live in Rhode Island but in today's electronic age the distance is not a problem Casey reviews my holdings and makes the changes to keep my portfolio in the agreed balance. I find his fee schedule appropriate. He has my complete trust. He is responsive to every request and has a professional office staff to meet every need.I recommend Wiser Wealth Management anyone needing sound financial advice.

I highly recommend Casey and his team! Missie and Michaela were very knowledgeable and helpful. They listened to my goals and helped me put a plan together. As a fiduciary fee only firm, it was clear that they always had my best interest in mind. Also, with 200+ air line pilots under management, they are very well prepared to address the specific needs and concerns of pilots.

I approached Casey and his team to help me get a better handle on our long term finances and planning to help ensure we were on track to meet our long term goals. They were amazing. They walked us through the entire process and explained everything we needed to look at and why it was important. I was impressed at the manner by which they identified gaps in specific future years where we may be vulnerable and what coverages we needed to plug those holes. Everything I was worried about was addressed and a plan developed for each concern. The process and changes they guided me through left me feeling confident about my families future and what we may expect.

We have been with Wiser Wealth Management for approximately 8 years as a client, but had been following Casey's advice from his webpage for much longer than that. In the 8 years that we have been clients, we have become debt-free and have built our retirement nest egg with Casey's advice and management to a point where we are extremely comfortable and confident that we will retire with more than needed to handle our retirement needs. The one-on-one relationship with a fee-only professional like Casey and his team is extremely valuable. I consistently encourage my colleagues to reach out to him, and give testimony to what Wiser Wealth Management has done for us and our ability to manage our income and feel confident about retiring with no worries about our post-retirement income.

We've been using Wiser for about 8 years and as a relatively youngish couple (at the time) it was the best financial decision we've made. Casey has never steered us wrong and has proven over the years that his advice and expertise are invaluable. I seriously can't recommend him and his team enough, they have changed our lives.

I had the chance to speak with Casey for the first time today and he definitely exceeded my expectations! He was very knowledgeable and attentive and I felt a lot of confidence speaking with him about my early planning. One of the primary reasons I looked into Wiser is because of their fee-only model (vs fee-based/commissions), but after talking with Casey I’m also sold on their integrity and professionalism as well. Thank you Casey!

I have only been with Wiser Wealth Management for a month and in that time, they have been exceptional! I had an initial consultation at no cost, had a 2nd phone meeting at no cost, they provided superb financial advise, are a fiduciary company, and their fees are completely reasonable. As if that isn't enough, in the short space of time that I have been with them, my investments have grown considerably. Highly recommended!

My spouse and I have been associated with Casey and his team for about eight years now. What led us to Wiser - I've always felt we had the discipline to save for what was then our upcoming retirement, but recognized we lacked the financial savvy to properly manage and grow our portfolio. This is where Wiser comes into play. We did our due-diligence, meeting others but the comfort factor (professionalism, knowledge, and trust) was there with Wiser. Now that we're retired, we are comforted by the fact that Casey and team are always available to help us with our financial planning and assist in the continuing growth of our funds and our future. We feel a comfortable yet professional relationship with the Wiser team. Reaching out to Wiser those eight years ago was the appropriate step in securing our future.

It has been our pleasure working with the team at Wiser Wealth Management. I first can to know Casey when he worked at the airlines as a pilot. His interest in helping his fellow employees lead him to share his knowledge of financial management, at 401k workshops. I knew my husband and I could work with him, he laid everything out in layman’s terms, and was patient answering all questions. We live in North Carolina, and have looked at finding someone closer, but it was not the same feeling of trust, and ease of working together, so we stayed with Casey.
Cathy S.
18:53 13 Apr 21
Great to work with and always available for my random questions. They treat you like you are one of their own.

The financial planning was invaluable and being a fiduciary business always what is best for you.

Casey is amazing!! He has literally saved us financially. I cannot sing his praises enough. He advised and walked us through a series of unexpected expenses and losses and informed us of options we were unaware of. Despite the insanity of 2020, we are now in a good position thanks to Casey, adding to our retirement accounts and have gotten our savings back to where it needs to be. I trust Casey and his team to make the best decisions for us, and perhaps best of all, Casey is extremely ethical and I fully trust him with our best interests. I also love that Casey makes himself available to his clients and establishes great relationships... I can and do reach out to Casey when I have financial questions!
