Founded in late 2003 by Tony Thome, the firm is uniquely positioned to offer prudent, constructive financial advice in a comfortable, confidential setting. The highest degree of professional integrity is the core tenet of the organization.
Thome Financial is an independent, closely-held consultancy. We are not beholden to a list of vendors or products; rather, we are able think freely in both structuring and executing suggested financial strategies. This conflict-of-interest free environment means we focus on advice not product.
Personal interaction and individual attention set us apart. Unlike large brokerages or banks with rows of cubicles, we run our business in the same comfortable, relaxed setting many of our most successful family business clients do.
Mr. Thome oversees all strategic activity of the firm, focusing on providing unbiased, insightful advice on the structuring and management of corporate and personal financial assets. Particular expertise includes comprehensive financial management, strategic financial modeling and tax-sensitive investment management.
Client representation includes business owners, corporate entities, and taxable investors with particularly complex situations.
