Find a SmartVestor Pro at Allen & Company

Dave Ramsey is known worldwide for his unique and pragmatic take on investing and finance. He’s helped millions of people reduce their debt, control their finances, and plan for their futures.

At Allen & Company, we hold these values dear to us as well. It’s all part of our mission to serve our clients with integrity and for the long term.

That’s why several of our financial advisors — in addition to upholding Allen & Company core values — are also SmartVestor Pros. Here’s how you can get started on your path to financial independence.

What is a SmartVestor Pro?

Not only “what”, but also “who”, is a SmartVestor Pro?

In short, a SmartVestor Pro must uphold Ramsey’s SmartVestor Code of Conduct.

For those who use Dave Ramsey’s methods of financial wellness, a SmartVestor Pro — who is well versed in those methods — will help support you as you move towards your financial independence.

Should my advisor be a SmartVestor Pro?

Not necessarily! Everyone’s approach to finance — as well as their goals — will be different, depending on personal feelings as well as unique situations.

Many investors follow different methods than those proposed by Dave Ramsey, uphold similar values through alternate methods, or may take an entirely different approach that could be advantageous to certain investors.

Overall, a SmartVestor Pro may be right for you if you are a devoted follower of Dave Ramsey’s methods and are specifically looking for a professional to help you walk that path!
