What does an investment adviser do?

At Cadinha & Company, we like to think of ourselves as your chief financial strategist. As an investment adviser, we help you identify your financial goals, invest to meet those goals as safely as possible, and alter the course as your life and goals change. Also, an investment adviser is involved with more than investing. They help you make decisions about cash on hand, life, health, long-term care and disability insurance, gifting plans, college plans and much more – the whole financial picture.
