Our Perspective

What makes GuideStream Financial different?

OUR PERSPECTIVE.

Our calling is to enable you to experience the joy & peace of building your financial life and legacy to its God given potential.​We are often asked why anyone should consider GuideStream for their financial planning and investing needs. What makes us different? It is a good question and one that deserves a concise answer. While there are many aspects of our enterprise that look similar to other investment firms, there are 3 differentiators we believe are significant.

Biblical Stewardship Perspective
We believe planning and investing is more than just ‘having more’ or ‘growing your investments’. It is about exploring the purpose for your resources in an honorable way that will help maximize impact on the people and causes you care about most. We want to assist you in digging deep and evaluating how you manage those important aspects of your life. There is power in purpose and we will help you make sensible and wise decisions. 

What Matters Most … is Barrier Free
It is our conviction that creating a financial plan is vital to achieving your stewardship goals. You wouldn’t take a road trip without knowing your destination, right? Many firms charge significant fees ($1,000’s) to do a plan, however, as a ministry of our firm, we provide your initial plan complimentary. We don’t want the high cost of a plan to impede your willingness to understand and accomplish your stewardship goals. 

Un-conflicted Compensation
There is not enough room here to explain all the ‘behind-the-scenes’ conflicted compensation methods in the financial services industry. However, we have removed them from our compensation model. We do not accept soft-dollars or marketing support from any of the funds we use. Nor do we charge commissions. Our advisors are salaried and our compensation is from a simple, clearly stated fee shown on your statements and performance reports. Un-conflicted compensation allows our advisors to provide you with the unbiased planning and investing advice you desire. We believe you will find your experience with our advisors and support staff to be engaging, informative and beneficial as you and your loved ones seek to be faithful stewards of the resources entrusted to your care. Thank you for considering GuideStream Financial.
