Tim has had the opportunity to work for some of the world’s largest financial institutions.  He elected to use his experience and knowledge to better serve his clients by founding Cornerstone Financial Advisory, LLC, a smaller client focused firm.  “I wanted to feel that I was working for the client, as opposed to the corporation”, Tim said.  He believes that building a financial plan or investment portfolio begins with listening to the client. He starts with finding their values, life’s station, risk tolerance, and goals to craft a solution based upon their specific situation. Being an independent financial advisor puts Tim in a position to operate on the premise that unbiased opinions and a wide variety of nonproprietary solutions are in the best interest of the client.  Tim said, “This allows me to really work at my passion of helping people reach their goals and even consider how their values can be at the foundation of their plans.”

 

Tim Flick has over fifteen years of experience in financial advice and management.  This experience has given him the hands on knowledge of how to best position clients in good and bad economic conditions.  He is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional.  He has taken this extra step to demonstrate his commitment to furthering his knowledge by voluntarily submitting to the rigorous CFP® certification process that includes demanding education, examination, experience, and ethical requirements.  He completes a minimum 30 hours of continuing education every two years, including a course on CFP Board’s ethical standards.  He is also a Certified Kingdom Advisor.  The Certified Kingdom Advisor designation provides a principled class of biblically wise financial professionals who have been trained in biblically wise financial advice for clients who long for peace of mind and purpose in their financial dealings.

He is a regular contributor to articles, blog posts, and a frequent public speaker on different topics related to financial planning.

Community Involvement

Tim currently serves as an Elder in their local church and, although challenging, finds it rewarding to see other’s spiritual growth.  He has enjoyed, at different times of the last several years, coaching his children’s basketball, baseball, or soccer teams.  Tim loves the beauty of the Caribbean and has found an opportunity to serve a community in the Dominican Republic by visiting and supporting a pastor, who is a D.R. national.  This pastor and his family feed seventy kids a day from their home.

He follows a disciplined four-step wealth management process. He first listens to his clients to learn about their past experiences, current situation, and aspirations. Using the information gleaned from his clients, he then develops ways to help them achieve their financial objectives. Duke explains his findings, recommendations, and advice in plain English.
