Once Upon a Goal A New Way to Look at Your Bucket List Surprise! You’ve Got Money! RE: Retirement

Our Story

Brad Scott, Steve Lambert and Ernie Renner founded SLR Financial in April, 2012. Together we have over 50 years combined experience as financial advisors. Our experience working with large financial institutions compelled us to create an independent firm built on the principles we value most. As independent advisors, we have the flexibility to navigate markets with unbiased, innovative strategies. We utilize active and passive allocation strategies to help generate value. From the more experienced trader to the novice investor; we strive to work with our members, at their pace, to make sure their experience is comfortable, positive and rewarding. 

SLR Financial is built on our commitment to three key goals: to provide sound financial plans tailored specifically for each individual; to consistently deliver exceptional service; and to develop a long-lasting relationship with each member.
