What We Do

At Dunston Financial Group, we help individuals, families, and business owners accomplish life goals through the effective management of financial resources.

We do this by providing comprehensive financial planning and investment management services on a fee-only basis. This may mean funding a child’s education, putting in place a sound retirement strategy, or perhaps transferring an estate in a way that minimizes taxes. Financial goals are different for everyone; therefore, we will never utilize a “cookie cutter” approach when helping you accomplish your financial objectives. At Dunston Financial Group, our only goal is to help you accomplish yours.
