Without trusted guidance and easy-to-understand advice, it’s hard to feel confident in your financial future. Welcome. I’m Chris Miller, and I seek to address this concern by serving as a trusted resource. 

I am an independent financial advisor who assists clients in all stages of life and specializes in retirement and income planning. My passion lies in helping my local community articulate, plan, and pursue their goals and I take pride in the fact that I have been helping my friends and neighbors for over 19 years. My top priority is to serve my clients first, last, and always. I believe my clients appreciate the value I offer and the personalized attention I provide.

While I am based in Frederick, Maryland, I work with clients all over the country. I invite you to contact me today to learn more about how I can help you pursue your goals.
