Virginia Wine Country

At Financial Counselors of Virginia (FCVA), we provide financial planning and investment management services on a fee-only basis. That means we work solely for our clients and receive no compensation from anyone else. As a result, we eliminate the normal conflicts of interest arising from the sale of investments and other financial products. The benefit to you is advice and portfolio management that is designed for you and tailored to your best interests.

As we design your investment portfolio, we aim for performance that is both reasonable and probable, not fantastic but merely possible. If you are looking for a fast trader to make overnight riches, please call someone else. If you are searching for an independent investment advisor who approaches the science as a prudent professional, one who takes the fiduciary oath seriously and places your interests first, you are in the right place. At FCVA, we do not attempt to outperform some arbitrary benchmark as proof of our worth, rather we strive to assure you have what you need when you need it.

Our clients are our focus

At FCVA, our clients are our focus. We provide a secure web site for each client where they can access information, post discussions, questions and answers, get copies of financial and personal documents and have access to the resources of FCVA whenever they want from wherever they are — 24 hours a day from anywhere in the world!  But let's not forget about face-to-face discussions when we really get to know you and discover what you need.

Telephone.  E-Mail. FAX. "Skype".  Whatever you need or want, we can communicate on your terms.

Sudden Wealth - Blessing or Curse - or both?

I won the lottery!

I just signed a multi-million dollar contract!

My rich uncle died and just made me wealthy!

Coming into a large amount of money might seem like a great excuse to kick back and live the easy life, but with more money can come more problems. Be sure to seek competent advice when deciding what to do with your new found wealth.

FCVA can be a major partner in your professional team. Call us.

Time to Enjoy Life!

You thought that retirement planning was all about accumulating the dollars that would allow you to retire with confidence and security. Well, now that you are retired, taking an income from your accumulated capital requires careful planning, also.

At FCVA, we have the knowledge and experience to help you tailor your portfolio to generate the income you need. The products and strategies that may be required for that income stream are available through FCVA at a potentially lower cost to you. We strive to help you have what you need when you need it.

Suddenly Alone

For whatever reason, you find yourself in need of making financial decisions alone. You like the idea of a trusted advisor that can help educate and empower you to navigate in a complex financial world - and who works just for you.
