403(b) Management for Cornell Employees
As a Cornell employee, you’re benefits include an employer funded 403(b) account. While that’s a fantastic benefit, how do you know the allocation inside your fund matches your timetable, risk tolerance, and values? Our 403(b) management program allows our advisors to consistently monitor your 403(b) as it grows to be one of your largest assets.
We take the time to get to know you. Your lifestyle, family and business aspirations become the foundation of your financial plan, which guides you step-by-step toward achieving your goals. We see our role as a facilitator to help you grow, preserve and position your wealth in a way that is aligned with your core values and heartfelt goals. And yes, we’re fiduciaries.
The foundation of financial security is, for most, a solid insurance program. Our in-house expertise in life, disability and long-term care insurance provides needed protection so you can rest easy. Think your health or lifestyle makes insurance impossible? You’d be amazed at who qualifies for insurance these days. And we’re independent, so we have the freedom to find the best product for you.

Our variety of specialists work together to ensure no outcome is unaccounted for.
Working with Fiduciaries
Your needs, goals and dreams are highly unique to you. You should have many options, but only one or two that best fit you. So why do some financial planners offer solutions that are merely suitable, but not best? As independent advisors, we are committed to only recommending the most beneficial solution for you.
We Love Our Local Community
Ithaca is our home, and we’re dedicated to its continuous improvement and progress. We value helping those in need, and frequently participate in highway clean-up, volunteer work, and founded The Strebel Fund for Community Enrichment, which has donated over $175,000 to the Ithaca community since 2008.
