SIGNIFY WEALTH helps you make your wealth matter.
We understand that being successful not only requires great effort but also significant sacrifice, and at SIGNIFY we will make the most of both. We believe that to fully experience life, you need to be free to enjoy and pursue what drives you. We help create the freedom and strategies needed to discover and focus on what makes life worth living.
The vision for SIGNIFY WEALTH began in 2003 when founder, Stephen Rhodes, became a financial advisor. The stifling nature of financial firms that seemed more concerned with data than people, pressed him to question what really mattered in life. Soon, he determined to build a firm that would serve as a trusted advisor to those who want to truly live a life that will SIGNIFY what is most important to them.
As SIGNIFY has grown, we remain fiercely committed to helping our clients make their lives and their wealth matter.
