    Understanding Your Life

    Thoughtful Guidance, Excellent Service

    Kaila Ibura leads a united team full of passion and shared vision of helping clients understand their financial picture and how to pursue the outcomes they desire. For more than a decade, we have provided thoughtful guidance and caring service to our diverse clientele, including entrepreneurs, corporate executives, business owners, corporations and community leaders. Collectively, we strive to create an atmosphere where clients feel understood and in return our relationships span over two to three generations in a family. While working with you, we seek to understand your financial situation, your investment objectives and your goals and aspirations. We are dedicated to learning everything so we can give you the customized service and value you deserve. As a team, our mission is to help you pursue the things that matter most to you.

    A Steady, Controlled Approach to Investing

    Instead of chasing high returns, we seek to achieve steady performance over the long term. Our thoughtful advice is based on your financial situation and your goals for the future. Our style is to follow a controlled approach with the ability to monitor market trends without getting persuaded by them. We accomplish this by incorporating a strategic plan which includes wealth preservation and income and capital appreciation.

    Social Impact Investing

    We support clients who believe in socially conscious, impact investing-people who feel strongly that their investments should be consistent with their beliefs. We take the time to meet with you, listen to your preferences and not only discuss companies and institutions which may be reflective of your beliefs, but we can also help you eliminate firms currently in your portfolio whose practices may run counter to your position on "hot-button" issues that are meaningful to you. We can help you develop an impact investing strategy that is focused on helping you pursue your financial goals.

    Your Financial Strategy

    We offer you access to the investing insights of Merrill, as well as banking, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America to help you pursue your goals. We will work to help you stay on track, regardless of what the markets are doing.
