Craig Faile, CLU®, ChFC®, CFP®, MBA, AIF®

For over twenty years I've enjoyed working with families and institutions who are interested in organizing, protecting, and growing their personal wealth.  Some clients need help simply organizing and reviewing current investments, while others benefit from a customized financial plan.  Whatever your needs may be you'll find comfort in knowing that you don't have to do it all by yourself.  With over 20 years of experience, professionally trained as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, and a formal education that includes an MBA from Wake Forest University I’m strategically positioned to help clients manage the complexities involved in simplifying their investment decisions.
