Professional Focus & Services

Ian has worked as a financial advisor specializing in socially responsible and impact investing since 2004. He is an Accredited Investment Fiduciary™ and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner.
Since studying at the University of Connecticut, he's been deeply interested in progressive economics and working to build an economy that prioritizes people over unlimited profit. Ian started in 2002 in office and tech support for a small Berkeley-based Registered Investment Advisor that managed SRI portfolios, and in 2004 began to work with clients on their investment and planning needs. 
In 2012, Ian co-founded a San Francisco-based, fee-only SRI advisory firm to focus on investments and financial planning for working and middle class people. During his tenure there, Ian developed the firm's retirement planning department, becoming an industry leader in socially responsible retirement plans for small to mid-sized companies and nonprofit organizations across the country. 
Ian makes often complex subjects accessible and strives to communicate in a friendly, non-judgmental way with a wide variety of clients, from seasoned investors to folks just getting started with personal finance.
Ian continues to support a variety of progressive organizations and campaigns in the Bay Area focused on immigrant rights, economic and racial justice, environmental sustainability, and workers’ rights. He is passionately committed to economic, racial, and environmental justice, which are at the forefront of efforts to create a sustainable and just world where people matter as much as profits.
Currently, Ian enjoys spending time with his wife and son, striving to be a great parent, playing bass and guitar, lifting weights, training Krav Maga, and unofficially providing tech support to friends and family.
