Our Story

Cedarwood was launched with the goal of creating a firm that felt like family to both clients and partners. We trace our roots back to 1996, when our senior partner and founder began serving individual investors in central Texas. He learned that serving clients well is much more than just offering financial products.

It begins with knowing you at a deeper level: your family, your hobbies, your worries, your life goals. It continues by serving you more deeply, walking alongside you throughout life’s circumstances, offering a hand, a high five, or a hug. Because of this, both he and his clients lived more meaningfully.

Empowering people with freedom to live fulfilled. MISSION. Our mission is to empower clients, partners and staff with the freedom, flexibility and community they need to experience personal fulfillment. We are dedicated to knowing them well, serving them well and helping them unlock a life lived well. VALUES We believe creating a family like culture with freedom to be who you are unlocks one's full potential. We believe coupling our culture with faith and belief in something bigger than one's self ultimately leads to fulfillment. FAITH. FAMILY. FULFILLMENT. FREEDOM. Cedarwood Financial Partners.
