Starfox Financial Services, LLC
traces its roots to 2002 at a major firm and was founded in 2006 as an independent Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) with a focus on serving the unique needs of the affluent investor. As an independent RIA with the motto Faith, Family, Finance, we are able to offer wealth building tools and advice without bias or conflict of interest. We work for our clients and not a brokerage firm or bank to achieve our clients’ desired outcome using a collaborative team-based approach.
The assets of our clients are held at a leading custodian that is independent from Starfox Financial. Both Starfox Financial and its independent custodian are financially strong, never taking a bailout. Our clients’ best interest is the standard as a 100% fiduciary advisor.

Our Investment Philosophy
Our investment philosophy is based on five basic rules and an understanding that risks and opportunities associated with various asset classes change constantly based on changes in market and economic conditions is key. It is vital to tactically adjust asset allocations as market and economic conditions change which Starfox has done through different market cycles. Given our tactical approach to risk management, we tend to be overweight in areas of increased value and underweight in areas of excess risk or expense.
