Cornerstone Wealth Management
Our mission is to provide our clients with a foundation for their lives; not only in their investments but in the lifestyle they live. We build our relationships on the premise of life-long partnerships verses transactional encounters. We believe in being life coaches for our clients and being a resource beyond the usual financial advisor. We are involved in their lives to the core and build our business on the friendships we create with our clients. This includes an evaluation and analysis of your current situation: income sources, expenses, taxes, economic variables and risks, etc. Your Retirement Compass is unlike traditional retirement plans. When obstacles block your path, for example: market fluctuations, inflation, rising health care cost, etc., our Compass will guide you around them, keeping you on track to your retirement goals. At Cornerstone, we believe you should not be alone on this journey. We will be with you every step of the way, ensuring that your Retirement Compass provides and meets all of your retirement goals.

Anthony has earned the Accredited Investment Fiduciary designation, which shows that he is interested in and working toward his clients’ best interests, a standard of care he is obligated to uphold as a fiduciary. He strives for best-interest advice using a peer percentile ranking of an investment against a set of quantitative due diligence criteria selected to reflect prudent fiduciary management. As a fiduciary, he stresses the importance of education when preparing for any financial decision.
“My goal is to provide you with the tools and knowledge needed to make informative and purpose-driven decisions. Education is key when providing financial advice. Everyone I meet has different circumstances and financial goals including capital appreciation, income planning or both. As an independent financial advisor held to a fiduciary standard, it’s important to understand the pros and cons of all financial vehicles, including mutual funds, stocks, fixed income, alternative investments and annuities. Being independent and licensed to work with all these investments and insurance products allows me to never take a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to financial advice, which is more often tolerated.” – Anthony Napolitano
