About Byron Studdard

I believe that people deserve to have someone that puts them first and foremost when it comes to their financial future.

Who I am, and why I started Studdard Financial

The biggest driver behind Studdard Financial is that we believe, wholeheartedly in providing the best advice to our clients. And it's also why we're a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) and are held to a true Fiduciary duty, 100% of the time.

Fiduciaries are held to the highest standards of investment advice and MUST do what’s right for their clients.

Clients always come first.

Investment Advice That Goes From Better to BEST!

As an RIA, we are legally bound to work in YOUR best interest!

Under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, registered investment advisors are held to a fiduciary standard of care.

By law, we must ensure that each investment recommendation we make is based on your best interest.

In the event that a conflict of interest should arise, we, as RIAs, are required to let you know. That is not always the case with non-RIA "personal financial advisors."

Additionally, we are required to have a written code of ethics that governs our actions and fully discloses how we are compensated.
