Welcome, and thank you for visiting our website.

Financial security doesn’t happen by chance; it is the product of sound decision-making and planning. As a Wealth Management Advisor, Jim Houghton and his team can help you understand the complex issues and ways of finances that might affect your future.

Planning requires time – yours and mine. Life is a journey and it can be scary at times. Let Jim and the Houghton Team work with you to determine a planning solution that works for you and helps guide you to your goals.
