The Townsend Logo
Why did we choose the eagle to represent Townsend? An eagle symbolizes new beginnings and life changes along with the strength and resilience to endure difficult times, while having the courage to look ahead. An eagle stands for honest and truthful principles while inspiring to reach the highest standards.

The Townsend Difference
We understand that establishing a relationship with a trusted and knowledgeable financial advisor is an important decision, one that takes time and deserves careful consideration.
Navigating the overwhelming number of financial products and services has become even more difficult, increasing the need to seek professional guidance. At the heart of a relationship with your advisor should be the assurance that you consistently receive sound financial advice that is in your best interest and that you fully comprehend.
- We are an independent registered investment advisory firm representing our clients, not a particular company.
- We help our clients organize and understand their entire financial picture, while tracking progress toward achieving their financial goals.
- Our knowledge and experience are essential elements of our ability to help our clients achieve their financial objectives.

How Townsend Manages Investment and Retirement Accounts
Investment success in today’s rapidly changing markets requires considerable knowledge in all areas of investment management. Townsend is dedicated to bringing investment management and research to our clients. Townsend has more than $400 million under management.
After years of advising our clients, we know the patterns. Emotions can often lead to poor decisions. Investors often buy at the top and sell near the bottom. Chasing tips from friends, relatives or coworkers becomes an unfortunate trend. As investors, it is very easy to forget that long-term investing in a diversified portfolio can be the best approach. Although diversification does not guarantee against the risk of an investment loss in a declining market, it can reduce the overall volatility risk of your investment portfolio.
Many investors are lured to constantly tinker with their portfolios. The outcome of this behavior often leads to lower returns.
Isn’t it time for a new approach? Through Townsend you gain access to a team with considerable experience. The Townsend Team follows a disciplined process designed to ensure that rigorous, rational financial planning — not emotional decision making — are the basis for every investment decision. At Townsend we constantly monitor our clients’ portfolios to help ensure that goals and objectives are being met.
Achieving goals in business, sports and life requires dedication, skill and discipline. It’s no different when it comes to achieving your financial goals.
Our five-step investment process provides a framework for identifying, analyzing and executing investment opportunities. By following a disciplined process, we are able to design strategies that can potentially help improve our clients’ success to reach retirement and actually stay there. In addition, Townsend does not hold clients’ money directly. Monies are held by the individual institutions.
