WealthFolio Advisors was founded because we believe everyone deserves honest, personalized investment advice that helps you feel confident in your future.
Founders, Aly McFarlane and Michele Holton worked together as Financial Advisors at large financial institutions, both with the same goal of helping people understand the benefits of investing. Unfortunately, over the years the financial services industry has had many situations occur that has eroded people’s trust in the institutions that were designed to serve them.
This was the catylst for starting our own firm. We established WealthFolio Advisors to help people with investment decisions and plan for their future the way it should be done; with trust, integrity and by always having our client’s best interest first and foremost.
