Wealth Management & Retirement
Copper Leaf Financial, LLC is the affiliated and separately registered financial planning branch of the Davis & Hodgdon Advisory Group.
Copper Leaf Financial
Serving clients nationwide from its offices in Williston and Rutland, VT, Copper Leaf Financial takes a holistic approach to wealth management for business owners, high net worth individuals, and their families.
We recognize that certain turning points in your life such as the sale of a business, financing your children’s education, or your retirement require careful financial planning. We’ll work with you to develop a plan that acts as a roadmap towards your financial future and ambitions – one that can help you maintain your lifestyle during retirement while carefully preserving wealth for the next generation.
The aim of our wealth management services is to take proactive steps that will align your finances to meet your personal objectives. To accomplish this, we’ll meet with you to discuss your concerns and learn all we can about your financial aspirations and life goals.
We then start to build a comprehensive plan that can safeguard assets throughout your life and transfer wealth to your beneficiaries with minimal tax implications. This proposal may include succession planning, estate planning, and investment management. As your wealth grows and your circumstances change, we’ll adjust this plan accordingly with the goal to positively impact your wealth on the lives of others – either heirs or charity.

How We’re Different
Since we are not commission-based or tied to any one vendor, we can suggest the proper financial products that will help achieve your goals.
That kind of freedom changes everything. You’re looking for unbiased, sound planning and that’s what we deliver. We offer planning for a lifetime, a well-diversified portfolio, and responsible asset allocation.
In short, you will reap the benefits of:
- An integrated, written, comprehensive plan that includes all aspects of your finances
- Knowing you have an action plan in place to help achieve your financial goals and protect your family, even in unexpected situations
- A foundation upon which to make future tax and investment decisions
- A lifetime plan that evolves as your life does and reflects all changes along the way
- Access to a group of experienced professionals that include CPAs and CFP®s
Another point of differentiation is knowing you have a customized financial plan that is designed to integrate and enhance every aspect of your financial life: from tax planning to estate planning to risk management to retirement funding to charitable giving and beyond. By understanding and aligning these critical components of financial health, investors and their families substantially improve the odds of reaching their most important goals.
At Copper Leaf Financial, we work with you over the long term. We develop a plan that acts as a roadmap – and evolves over time. It reflects changes in your life and your goals. A proper plan enables you to invest the same way we do: broad diversification, low costs and appropriate levels of risk. We prize evidence over emotion and we value academic and market research over fluctuating opinions.
