After working in the big box financial industry, Cory and Taylor arrived at the same conclusion: independence was the only way forward. There had to be a better way to help people plan their financial futures than by selling them a corporate agenda. They decided to found ClearPath so they could make recommendations that made the most sense instead of ones that made the most commission.
Being independent means ClearPath is designed to find tailor-made solutions for clients. We start by defining goals and then selecting the financial solutions that are the most efficient and cost- effective. Working “backwards” ensures efficiency and goal-oriented planning instead of a product-focused approach.
